Buying lenses from amazon.de
I live in Cyprus and I want to get the Nikon 85mm 1.8G. Unfortunately, the local dealer here does not have them in stock (4 week wait). So, I want to buy it off Amazon.de (cheapest price and no fiddling with exchange rates). The only offer the standard shipping service.
I was wondering what people's experiences are. Are the lenses well packed? Is there any risk above the normal risks when buying from a brick & mortar retailer?
