Amazon was going to charge me 7.50 for "free" shipping and almost 70 dollars for taxes on my order of the 18 and 60 lenses? I ordered from B&H with no charges whatsoever but really wanted to support this site as I am a frequent reader. However paying almost 80 bucks more did not make any sense.

Any thoughts?

With regards to taxes, it depends on your state.  What you should know is Amazon didn't want to start charging sales tax, but states sued them to force it.  The state felt like it should get money for everything it's residents buy.  Greedy!

For instance if I ship to TX I pay taxes, but if I ship to IL I do not pay taxes with Amazon.
