I had a similar issue once. Definitely overpriced.
Filter is 10 or slightly less.
The lens is definitely no buy, even if its 20 dollars.
And the shop.. is confirm a no go.
But after today, you'll definitely be much wiser when buying things.

Looking for Canon 100mm F2 USM :)
Live and learn...
worldwide is famous for ridiculous price one...
Canon 30D + 24-70 F2.8
no one, no matter how shrewd, will get conned once in a while.
Funan was selling the same lens at less than $50.

Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony
I bought my d80kit grey set 1 or 2 years ago from this shop.Manage to get it around $200 cheaper than what Alan Photo Funan quoted me. Even talked to the owner Jeffrey and he even showed me pics of his family on his desktop.
Came back after a month to buy a 50mm 1.8 from him for $150.
Maybe I just got lucky...then again maybe he knows something that i dont...
But switched to John 3:16 now...better to be safe than sorry.
Bro if its any help I can give you the number of the Jeffrey guy. Just PM me.

CASE is of no use in this case. CASE actually can't do very much besides help you draft a letter.

those negative comments to ourself. Well , this is a "forum" that we try to get any kind of verbal help that we can get , not being critical at some mistakes that people make unintentionally. We all make mistakes. Hands up, anyone who doesn"t make mistakes !
Just want to say some thing about trusting those shops with good reputation. With good reputation doesn't mean they are angels. You can try to ask prices of accessories and they may also quote you ridiculous prices up to 200% of prices sold else where.
So moral of the story is never trust anyone, just do you own research before deciding where to buy.
