So I did a dumb thing, at least as far as box-keepers go of which I am one.

I sent my 5D in for servicing of the mirror and, thinking it would be most safe in its original packaging, I did just that:oops:

Just in case any of you are as dumb as me, don't send Canon your equipment in the original box--they don't send it back. Oh yes, they package it very well back to you, no fret there. But they don't send you back your box.:cry:

That is true, I think they say somewhere not to expect your original packaging back. Sorry for your loss. :(

:D you are so right and I forgot. I guess should I ever sell it on POTN, I'll have to reference this thread or worse, go on WTB "One 5D box in excellent condition from a smoke free home, no pets, no dents, no cut outs, pristine with photos and exif....lol"

Oh well, I'm not planning on selling this lovely anyway...just a warning:)

Hmmm, I got the box back when I sent my lens in for cleaning. I guess I got lucky. How else do they expect you to package it? Seems like it'd be best protected in the original packaging.

I wonder what a 1Ds Mk III box would go for on E-Bay.

I might buy one, to make my old Rebel 300D worth more when I sell it.

With Canon Australia I have sent a camera and on another occasion a lens back for warranty work, both in original boxes. Both were returned in original boxes as well.

Someone was selling various boxes for Canon DSLR on Ebay for 50 bucks each.

I had gotten my box back from the Irvine Centre when I had sent in my 70-200 before. Maybe luck of the draw?

I've sent my original boxes for lenses and camera. I always got them back no problem.

I have sent my 100-400 in twice before, in its original box, and gotten the box back with the lens. Maybe it's just for cameras?

I sent my 5D in twice to the Jamesburg, NJ service center in its original box, both times I've indicated on a sticky-note stuck on the box that I wanted the camera back in its original box and they sent everything back in order.
