Heard on the radio today that the suez canal blocking ship Evergiven, is being held in custody by Egypt with it 20,000 containers still on board, until a humongous fine is paid. And no one is willing to stump up the cash.

So if your new lens or camera is on that one, there could be a seriously long wait!

Fortunately I hadn't ordered anything recently.

How would anyone know if anything they'd bought (camera, peanuts, elephant etc) was on that ship? And what has that got to do with this forum ? 🤔

If you read the forum regularly you might have spotted that people have commented on camera stores not having or receiving stocks when expected. And also that forum members are frustrated waiting for their ordered goods.

We knew the Evergiven had held up other boats for a few weeks, but I doubt many here knew that there are still 20,000 containers of goods that definitely won't be delivered for a very very long while yet.
