Are camera lenses packaged well enough that they would be safe coming through the USPS or FedEx or UPS? Has anyone received one that was damaged from being jossled about?

Absolutely yes...they are packaged well enough.
None of the camera equipment I've purchased, including the lens I got 3 days ago, has ever been screwed up through shipping.

Consider this...
If you went to the store and bought it off the shelf.....how did it get to the store in the first place?

In fact, the Fuji lens I got the other day was from BH.
This one, but very slightly used for 1/2 price.

The packaging.


Sturdy box, bubblewrap, original Fuji box, foam padding.

I could have dropped this off my roof and it would have been fine.
