If that combo doesn't scream Leica...
I had a Canon 28/3.5 spend an untold time in that bottomless pit. Total travel time from origin in NJ to delivery in NC: 23 days. Showed up on New Year's Eve without further update from USPS for 20 of those 23. To be fair, the Postal Service has been hamstrung by staffing and equipment decisions, compounded by COVID and by even higher than normal holiday mailing volumes. I have noticed an improvement in times in the last few days. It'll get to you. You could start an inquiry, but they'll just tell you they don't know where it is.I'm afraid the PL12-60 I bought off a member here has fallen into a bottomless pit nicknamed the "USPS Distribution Center in Newark, NJ."
Oh! What did I buy today? Well, last week, but 10 hot shoe covers for $5. It's a manifestation of my OCD, but if I get a used camera that doesn't have one, it makes me twitch until I get those contacts covered up. Same thing with other terminal covers. I had an E-1 that was missing ...more than one cover... hadda put it in a closet until the replacement pieces came in.
But I remove stickers as soon as I bring anything home.
