The customer was dissatisfied with the level of performance.  That is a perfectly legitimate reason for a return.

That is not correct. The OP himself said that the lens did perform better than his existing lens/TC combo. But he returned it because the price was too high. And he would've kept it if it was priced at $2K. Did he not know the price before buying?

Namecalling does nothing to validate your position.

There is no such thing as a "right" way.  If someone purchases something and they don't like it for whatever reason, there's absolutely nothing wrong with returning it in keeping with the return policy of the seller.

What many people do to determine whether or not a lens is right for them before buying is either read reviews from trusted experts or better yet, rent the lens out to give it a try themselves. What the OP did is a good example of impulse buy and reaction to buyer's remorse.

I don't think you could be any more wrong in your assertion.

And you couldn't be any more ambiguous in your statement. What exactly is wrong that you are asserting? That people read reviews? People rent lenses?

What is wrong with your argument is your assertion that there is a "right/proper way" to purchase lenses.
