The buy-try-and-return sequence places an unfair burden on the retailer, whether or not the retailer passes the burden along to the their customer base.

If they are able to stay in business, then it means you've covered the burden as another customer.

It means that you have forced every other customer to pay more for every single purchase. How can you justify that?

As mentioned, I don't buy with the intent to return.

If you buy a lens (or anything else) with the firm intention of keeping, and return it only if it is defective that's one thing. But you are asking about buying it effectively on trial - I know that because if you genuinely intended to buy and keep it you wouldn't even be asking the question - returning just wouldn't be in your mind.

Also don't want to subsidize those who do. Which would lead to buying from a place with a restocking fee or with a no return policy.
