Not even 2 weeks ago I finally got my new macro lens (Canon 100mm F/2.8). I had been waiting for almost 3 weeks for the store to get it back in stock by then. Unfortunately, there were some defects in the lens, so it had to be sent back.. They said it'd be a simple thing. Sending it in, just to get a new one, and they made it sound as if it'd happen rather fast.
So, we sent it in. But then the mail delivery company firstly 'delivered' it way later than they should've. When we contacted the company we bought the lens at, it turned out that they had not received it, while the track & trace said it was delivered. So for almost a week now we've been trying to find out where the damn lens is. Today it was finally found, but we got the awesome news that it'll take anything between 2 - 4 weeks before they've finished testing the lens for flaws.
Fucking goddamnit. This is just one thing in a whole serie of things that we've bought which has been defect, or generally had trouble with. It feels like bullshit waiting for a real long time for them to even get the lens in, then paying good money, and receiving a defect lens, which you'll be without for x additional weeks. I fear I'm gonna miss most (if not all) spring flowers : (
I'm also very sad about this, because yesterday I was supposed to go to the stables, and get to take photos of newly born horses.. But now I'll have to wait some weeks for that
