Hi! Was having a big discussion with some friends recently about the strange (well, for us Europeans that is
'return/refund' policy in the US, and was wondering how you (US CR members) are feeling about it?
I mean, apparently, you can get yourself a nice Eos-1Dx camera with a few f/2,8L zoom lenses, use them for a friends wedding and then some, send the whole bunch back to where it came from for a full refund, no questions asked...?
Very convenient, I'm sure, but the next customer is not getting a new (i.e. unused!) camera / lens, now is he/she?
I noticed some posts mentioning getting three the same lenses, selecting the one which suits your camera the best (front/ back focussing) and sending the other two back for a full refund.
It seems somehow to contradict a bit the sometimes very sensitive (but very justified!) attitude many CR members have towards anomalies on their new / secondhand gear (read: ebay camera had more actuations than seller mentioned or camera body came back from CPS with a bunch of extra actuations on it...those kind of things)? Anyway, sorry for the rather long first post, but I would be very interested in hearing your opinions! (by the way, English is not my native 'speak' so kindly pardon the mistakes made
