Like there isn't some 500mm lens that hasn't been used in the wild without a small chip somewhere in its 5-year USA warranty period. If they think their stuff is "Pro Grade," then they ought to back it like it was used by a Pro out in the field, and not as if it were gold jewelry to be housed in a climate-controlled showcase or vault somewhere and never used.

Hopefully they'll come to their senses soon. I know my local shop who used to sell/recommend them over Canon would like it too.


Took those words right out of my mouth. If these so called "PRO" lenses that cost over $1500 can get "impact damage" from everyday bump and hump then they might as well write it on manual to keep it bubble wrapped at all times. All working professionals know it is literally IMPOSSIBLE to keep all our gears shiny and new. Couple of scratches that void warranty? give me a break.
