    Interesting, I sent my D800, 70-200vrii and TC-20e into Nikon uk all in the original boxes. I would argue that it's the best way to send them as they have pre-formed inserts. I suppose you have to go with the local rules.

    Oh, that's interesting -- I didn't know that. It's kind of funny that you mention that because when I sent my D-5100 in for repair, I was afraid of losing my box, so kept it and double packed the camera (corrugated box within a corrugated box). I was a little perturbed that Nikon's packing work for the return trip seemed barely sufficient -- just a flimsy thin-wall box with my camera bubble-wrapped within.

    All except the D3s - it was destroyed in courier incident D4 replaced it. However I am in the process of buying another. I very seldom sell my gear.
