Shipping today

Posted by Machang Optics - Kamlan (Creator)

Hello Backers,

Here is the newest shipping status as of right now

  • We have started to ship today, from the super early bird pledge, total 105 orders today in shipping progress. Tracking number should be available in 24 hours. You should receive email notifying you updated shipping status from, which is the 3rd party service we are using.
  • each package will be included bayonet lens hood, we make sure of that.

  • For most of european countries backers, we will forward their packages to a shipping company located in Germany first, then distribute from there to different european countries, thus there is no custom charge or additional handling fee. We took this move as we take your advice very seriously and realized the custom charge or extra handling fee might be an issue with DHL, then we spent several days to find warehouse located in Germany to do the forwarding service. (They will use DPD locally). This change might result in a few days late than direct express shipping from China, however we think it's worth the wait considering free of hassle. Hope you could understand this. However for the european countries below, we still ship your item from China using the service specified below upon an overall consideration of the shipping charge and risk.

    Iceland                   DHL         
    Finland                   DHL
    Switzerland             DHL
    Norway                   DHL
    Ukraine                   EMS
    Greece                   EMS
    Israel                      EMS

    For North America, South America, Asia, Oceania, We are using DHL or EMS according to our shipping experience and your preference we received from kickstarter or email.

      @Tony Holden, for early bird pledges, we send from China directly. I have let you know the tracking via message system

      Well I seem to have a charge for £24 from DHL, or course I can't be sure it for the lens, because I don't have a shipping number from you guys or SAINSONIC. The only info other than the shipping number is, Shipper: SHANGRILA.

      Just picked up my lens from the postal office, seems to have been shipped with DHL from Germany. No extra custom or anything. I'm a happy camper, excited to test this! :) <3

      Hi Team,

      I have not received any Tacking Number as per the mail on 8th of Aug'18 it was mentioned to be shared within next 24 hrs. Let me know what is the update. Thanks, Bhaskar Saha

      Nice move with the redistribution to avoid customs. However it wa sent directly to the netherlands in my case and today I received a message about customs. I wish you would have done what you promised and not directly send it.

    9. Henrikki Matilainen on

      Swift shipping, but for future reference DHL will always and automatically customs declare with the full value. So for future campains if you are using using re-distribution through out the EC would be nice.

      Dear Kamlan,

      Thanks for this great update, but so far I did not receive a confirmation about shipment from Sainsonic yet.

      Nice! Can't wait to receive the lens. Did other super early bird pledges already got their tracking number? 2 days have passed, but I did not get a tracking number.

      I hope this is a joke.... DPD is the worst carrier in France! I am sure that I will never receive my lens...
      When I buy something on Amazon and they are in charge of the delivery, I never receive my order. They lose the package, or they tell me that I wasnt at home (and I see with my security camera that they never came to my door)... Check on internet what people think about them in France, they are the WORST CARRIER EVER.

      Nice move on the forwarding service! I don't mind waiting a few more days extra. Thanks for the update!
