What could be even more insulting

What if Olympus is actually buying that lens hood from say JJC for $6, then turning around and selling it for $60?!  Whatever the case, I'm sure they are making a tidy profit on each hood, so they don't have to sell many of them.  I guess the joke really would be on the rest of us if they're also licensing the aftermarket hoods, and making a buck each w/o having to lay out anything to manufacture them.
