btw I don't see how returning a lens makes it more expensive for everyone?

Consider the time and money wasted by the vendor to process and ship the lens and then the time wasted again to RMA, inspect, and return the product to inventory.

To buy, try, and return is simply a modus operandi for a lot of people, no matter whether they buy clothing, electronics, or anything else. The US retail industry is pretty much built on the premise that anything can be returned. Why? -- because they end up selling more this way as buying becomes "risk free". Think about it.

Besides, in some cases restocking fee is charged, so those companies that feel strongly that they should directly recoup the extra handling cost are already doing it.
