I ordered mine from store.canon.nl and it came in a cardboard coloured box with nothing printed on the outside, only a shipping label slapped on. When opening it I discovered that the inside was printed with pictures and text by Canon. It felt like an inside-out box, the pretty stuff on the inside faces. And in that box was padding and the actual RF100 box.Just got mine today from Amazon (preordered way back when they were listed). Was pissed as soon as I saw the UPS guy walk up... no outer box. Label was slapped right on the retail box and shipped that way. The box looked like it just came back from a warzone (It was dropped at least 3 times, as that is how many corners were heavily dented. One side rubbed almost raw from rubbing against crap). Opened it up and it 'looks' fine. I did a quick once over and no visible damage... then checked the elements and found a little dust on the rear (no biggie). Blew if off and a few spec's were actually on the inside (I know it's not a big deal, but it still bugs me to no end). I have yet to give it a good testing... but we will see.
I would've kept the outer box, but I sold the EF100L and I reused the box to ship that
