Agreed.  There's something about buying a lens just to compare it and then returning it that's a bit sickening.  If you do this, don't brag about.  It's bad enough that you don't exercise enough research and analysis before ordering a lens and returning it fully functional.  That only raises the buying costs for the rest of us and exposes the lens to potential shipping & handling damage before a more forthright buyer gets the lens.

Yep, totally agree. Just because of those handful of cheaters, rest of the consumers pay the price.

Stores offer a money back warranty to attract consumers who are unusre about a purchase. They know exactly what they get into when they create these policies and they would change them if they were not coming ahead at the end of the day. Nothing wrong with that, they're working to make a profit. But to say that a person "cheats" if he takes advantage of terms is an exageratoin.

But, again, to complain about the high cost of gear at the same time one engages in this practice is mildly ironic, to say the least.
