    pls open n check the items for defects. anything doesnt seem right, voice it out. don't buy without checking then realised it only when u get home then post in cs to complain abt the shop.

    jokes aside, very simple

    just make sure everything is working, make sure you have gotten a reasonable price, i.e. something you can live with

    also, make sure you go to a GOOD SHOP, and keep the receipt, all the good shops have been listed over and over here...

    and all of them have replacement if something goes wrong, unless you spoil it yourself, i don't really see a problem here.

    trying to clock posts uh.

    for TS..bring a camera along, test whether the lens work fine. look through it to ensure it is fungus-free and scratch-free.

    finally, check that the warranty card serial number matches that on the lens. there may be a case where a customer tries out multiple lenses, and the shop assistant accidentally keeps the wrong lens in the wrong box
