I just purchased a lens from Amazon because it was on sale and they offered the "pay in 5 installments" option. The lens was Sold and Shipped by Amazon, not a 3rd party vendor.

Amazon shipped my lens in a flimsy, plastic bag!!!! When I opened the bag I noticed the bottom corners of the box were smashed as if this package had been tossed around carelessly. The only protection that lens had was the interior Styrofoam holding the lens in its little box.

I honestly don't understand why Amazon does this. I think they loose more money from returns due to delicate electronic merchandise arriving in non working condition due to poor packaging than spending a few cents more on cardboard boxes when it come to shipping lenses, cameras, or other delicate electronics.

p.s. Please don't judge me by the name brand that's on the box. It was on sale and I needed it!
