    Well I finally received my shiny metal lens hood for my 75mm today from Amazon, being as excited as a school boy on Christmas break, I ripped open the package, and what falls out? Not only the shiny metal hood, but as an addition a shiny metal lens cap to go with it.

    Now I like a freebie as well as the next guy, but I decided to call Amazon since that was a costly mistake, and now here is where I really decided I like Amazon, they offered to let me keep the lens cap gratis. I decided to send it back since I'm fine with the plastic lens cap, but to me that was pretty much something most companies I know wouldn't even have offered to do. So Amazon gets two thumbs up in a circle from me :bravo-009:

    Awesome!

    Still, no way I'm sending that cap back. Not because I've "found" some kind of money in it, but because of the time for shipping, the carbon footprint and the cost. I guess I'm trying to say -- don't feel bad keeping it. Throw it in the box and pass on the joy to whomever gets the lens next.

    Probably why they didn't want it back.

    Yes, it costs as much to ship as it's worth at cost... especially a round trip. :)

    Amazon has always been awesome to me. They'll continue to get my business whenever possible.

    Worst experience I can say I had was I ordered a mecha toy for my son. And when it arrived was a Japanese girl statue which was almost naked except for a pair of bunny ears. They apologized and sent me the replacement figure quickly, but I thought my wife was going to skin me buying that toy for a teenager :)

    I have a sick desire to actually see your collection... Man I just love anything mecha, ever since I was a kid. I tried getting into some model building back in those days,but I was just horrible with. The only ones I got done were some macross models, and I was only pushed by the sheer love of those designs.

    Just picked up a G5 kit + lumix G 45-150mm from amazon for $470 shipped. Not sure how they can afford to do that =O

    I buy as much photo gear (plus a whole lot more) from Amazon as I do from some heavy hitters like B&H and Adorama. Never a problem.

    Zariell,

    You got max karma when you called them, many would have taken advantage of their mistake. It feels good to respect the guy in the mirror and you should.
    i had a similar situation with them over a "lost" package that eventually arrived after the replacement from Amazon. Same ending so I bought more stuff from them. They are very customer focused.
