I always thought, perhaps a little naively, that when packages were thrown in my general direction I simply got a crappy delivery guy. As it turns out, this seems to be standard practise if the responses to this Reddit post are anything to go by.
User mlapaglia told DIYP that he ordered a Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS Lens through Amazon. Being in something of a rush, he opted for same day delivery through a company called LaserShip. This is what LaserShip thinks of $500 lenses, and it turns out that they’re not the only ones.
