Gee, the racist bigot and rightard is now whining that a business
charges what it can. From fascist to socialist in the span of a day.

If you spend 10,000 times the time, effort and money on photography that I
suspect you spend
B&H will be better off without your business.

Keep whining that businesses won't let you pick prices, communist.

What are you afraid of? Obviously you are misreading my precise language.
Yes I admit to masturbation. Do you think that is something to be ashamed
of?
Or, are you afraid of your own desires.

Who do you buy from. In New England I found Hunt's to be quite reliable.

Beach too has an excellent reputation. As to the Chinese sellers on EBay, I
just lack confidence. YMMV

In the last 6 months I have ordered a smattering of a dozen or so small
items from Chinese suppliers on ebay, just to see how safe and dependable
they are. A 405nm blue laser which I pot-modded to ~100mw, lights a match
in less than one second, $1 with $7 shipping. (A fantastic item, no
geologist should be without one. I found a fist-sized clump of crystals
that I had to be highly red-phosphorescent under such intense near-UV
light. No fluorescence at all under short or long-wave UV light). Digital
calipers with data read-out port, $3 + $3 shipping (accuracy holds to
0.01mm, 0.0005 inches). Pocket butane torch hot enough to melt copper, $4
free shipping. Rifle-scope mounts, $3 free shipping. 3lbs. of quartz
crystals $20 (had to be sent by boat, took 2 months though). A Digipac-like
waterproof camera enclosure, $6 free shipping. And other various items. All
arrived in perfect shape, all of high quality. I recall when I bought two
green lasers for $8 each, one of them wasn't working quite right, so I
wrote back to them. They sent a replacement free of charge without my even
having to send back the semi-defective one. Some items ordered from China
arrived even faster than those ordered from my own continent. But still
consider 2-4 weeks as typical. Worth the wait. All sales considered I've
had better luck ordering items from China than from the USA or Europe. They
seem to highly value their feedback ratings, unlike sellers from other
continents whose primary goal is to make a fast buck rather than have any
honor.
