saddest unboxing ever
I wasn’t going to post about this, since it seemed too trivial. However, at a wedding I photographed this evening I chatted again to a previous bride and groom who attended their friends’ wedding … and he told me hasn’t laughed so much about an unboxing as he did at my sad whining in a recent Facebook post. So I thought I should repeat the story here then.
I pre-ordered the new Nikon 85mm f1.4G from my favorite camera store two months ago, and received notice that the lens would be delivered this past Friday. I was really looking forward to the update of the renowned Nikon 85mm f1.4D … great excitement! The UPS guy dropped the box off on Friday, and I eagerly opened it up to see a Nikon FM10 with a kit lens. A serious WTF? moment.
There you have it. Of all the zillions of orders that my favorite camera store ships out, I am sure there are the occasional mistakes that creeps in. But maaaaan, that it had to be with me! In their favor though, when I contacted the camera store, they apologized and immediately emailed me an RMA to return the camera so that they can send me my actual lens. No problem there. Their customer service has always been impeccable in my experience.
So, I’m still waiting for my new Nikon 85mm f1.4G lens … and somewhere out there, there is someone who is disappointed he didn’t receive his FM10, but instead just received an awesome lens. I hope he appreciates it!
