Like many I am still waiting on my 150-400mm lens.

I would have thought, but I have no reason so to do, that the value in terms of £ per kg would imply it might come by secure air freight. There certainly aren't enough of them to fill an ISO container.

Nobody sane in his mind would ship such an expensive but small and light lens by sea-freight. After all, things like flowers, lobsters and even wine bottles and cheeses travel by air too.

Just the interest on the $7,500 that lens costs, over 6-8 weeks seafreight end-to-end transit time, would pay for the airfreight.

Good point, but I don't imagine companies ship one single item at a time. I would expect a bulk consignment of mixed camera/lens stock to be shipped to the European distribution centre.
