Canon’s $70 Predatory Pricing Of Lens Hoods Is Criminal!

I do not have a problem with camera makers charging $2,000 (or more) for an advanced camera boy or for a very high-quality, very fast lens — though, of course, like anyone else I would prefer lower prices.

But, today’s camera bodies and top-end lenses are technological miracles. There is so much innovation, technology, componentry and labor that goes into them, Just like getting a high-end smartphone or computer.

But, $70 for a lens hood. Just a cheap piece of plastic. That is criminal. That is stupid. There is no way I will pay for such. You can get 3 lens hoods, though not snap-ons, on Amazon for $7.

I am really disappointed and disgusted with Canon. You don’t set out to rape customers so.
