    USPS tracking sux! I ordered my 50mm lens from Amazon and have been like a little kid with anticipation. I should have ordered it from B&H! I have a photo session this weekend and was hoping to get this in time. I ordered it from Amazon because in the past, especially Christmas time, I no sooner place the order and it's on my front porch! Monday was presidents day, no mail and banks were closed with it is Thursday....hope it gets here today. The tracking isn't showing anything! vent session over:gah:

    They are backed up! Now when I place orders, I choose two-three day shipping. If I don't receive confirmation in a day about it being shipped, I contact the seller. I've done this about 3 times already.

    Well, this confirms my theory that Amazon sucks. You're the second person that I know that has ordered a lens through Amazon in the past 2 months and they've effed up the order. The other person I know (Also a Forum go-er) had an expected delivery date of Feb 28 - MARCH 20TH!!! And the lens was in stock!

    I kept on badgering him about calling them and seeing what the issue was or just flat out canceling the order and re-placing it with Adorama or B&H. He called up Amazon (2 or 3 weeks after placing the order) and they said "OOPS WE MESSED UP DUDE! Here's free next day shipping."

    That's what I'd do if your lens hasn't shipped yet.

    Thanks! Getting ready to email them now. I have always had great luck with Amazon ordering other things besides photo gear with the fastest shipping and always wondered how did they do that so fast! If they are going to Fk up my order, maybe they'll accidently send me the 1.4 instead ;) heehee

    I order a lot from Amazon (both work and personal). Over 1000 orders in the past 5 years alone... and I have only had one or two problems the entire time time I have been ordering from them (since 1999)! So I consider Amazon to be VERY reliable.... much more so than any retailer I have ever dealt with.

    Plus you find some better deals on there. Even from the same retailer.

    I received an email that my items had shipped. Backed up? This isn't Christmas time.

    You know what they are doing? They probably opened up your package played with it, place it back in the box and should be on its way. Or the could be playing mind games like give you an empty box and tell they gave you the wrong package and they will be by tomorrow to drop it off...Oo...mindfreak!!

    You're right, just go to B&H next time! :)

    It's never taken longer than overnight for me to get something from them, and I've never paid for a shipping upgrade.

    I've had nothing but trouble with amazon ordering camera gear. I won't do it. Period. At one point last year they had almost $6000 tied up out of my checking account for about 2 weeks because I was trying to order thru them. I still ended up ordering thru Adorama after that.

    I had the same problem with Amazon. Took them forever. Then I logged in and chat with customer service. A gentleman from India name Surya (yes.. i was just making an assumption he is from India :) ). He said he was sorry and changed it to next day shipping. I got it the next day. Go to amazon now and chat with customer service!

    I've only had one issue with them and they solved it right off. I ordered a flash and it never showed up - the tracker said it had been delivered so I called Amazon. They sent another one out and it was at my house the next day.

    Adorama is usually pretty quick even when you buy through Amazon.

    Yeah, this was my first time ordering camera gear from amazon. B&H is awesome, haven't ordered from Adorama yet. Order said it shipped day after I placed it. USPS shows nothing on tracking.

    Log in to your amazon see where it is. Has it left the warehouse?
