Me, I'm just hoping that I never break the lens hood for my Canon 300
f2.8. The replacement price is $379.

Just goes to show us that we aren't paying for the plastic. No matter how big that plastic hood is, it just couldn't possibly cost anywhere near $379. I have had many non-camera products with much more than that amount of plastic that cost well under $100. I'm sure we all have.

That leaves only two other possibilities, engineering costs are much higher than we believe (but not for third party manufacturers, LOL) or just plain greed.
