Default Maybe It's a Sign

You know you're having a bad day when the Sigma 105 that you bought on eBay shows up and in the Sigma 105 box is a 28-135 not-Canon Lens.

The good news is that the seller has 100% feedback and was understanding. The lens had a Buy It Now of $300 and was listed as an Open Box item, but the lesson learned was that there was no picture of the lens itself.

What was interesting is that I had some buyer's remorse after reading the reviews on this and other forums, ie the Canon 100, Tokina 100, Tamron 90, etc. Maybe it IS a sign.

Thought people could use a good laugh before the weekend.

Sigh.

Send it back, get the seller to re-send you the Sigma, it's a fine lens.

Part of the problem is there is no 105, just a box.
