Canon lens packaging shelf life?
4 months ago

Hello all,

OK I have somewhat of an unusual question. What would you estimate the shelf life to be of the interior packaging used for Canon lenses? I'm specifically talking about the foam end inserts, the foam wrap, and the plastic baggie that Canon lenses come wrapped in. If I had to let a brand new in the box Canon lens sit in a dark closet for several years, would it be fine? I'm just concerned about the degradation of the packing materials inside the box. Experiences and opinions are appreciated.
Thanks!
Regards,
James
