Well, if you look carefully, you'll see very old stickers above the black lenses, and they ones on the shelves are not in conformance to what they actually say. :lol:

Alas, I want one or two of those big whiteys. :cry:

I'm confused . . . not by the number of lenses, but by the fact that they don't appear to be behind glass. Are people able to just walk into the store and handle the lenses, or is the display behind a counter?

:lol: I've never seen a lens display that wasn't locked up behind glass before: either in a display cabinet or in a glass counter. I was thinking that New Yorkers had to be much more trustworthy than Calgarians.

Why don't they have end caps (where they mount to the camera) on them?

The actual counter area of B&H has numbers above each salesperson, and I believe there's about 50 or so, meaning there are 50 or more customers being served at any one time. (And that is only in the camera department, as the store is two full floors.) The lenses, if you look closely, have inventory control tags on them so they cannot be "stolen." The lenses are provided by the manufacturer to be used as display, and when you come up to the counter and ask to try one, they will walk right up to the one you want, take it off the shelf, and you can mount it to your camera or any body they have there for you to try out, and you can basically stand there as long as you want, turning around and taking pics of other customers in the store. It's very cool.

Last time I was there with Kevan (from this forum) we both tried the 200-400.

One thing that is a bit annoying, but understandable, is the smaller lenses have the control tag fitted through a hole in the filter thread, so if you want to try a filter, you can't screw one on. Not a big deal obviously.

Also, if you look at the right side of the pic, that is the back of a customer. The lenses are behind the sales force who are behind the counter.
