When VW release a new series Golf or Honda release a new Civic it doesn't cost an extra 60%.

RF kit is a rip off.

Every camera manufacturer does this - it's not a Canon thing, and it's basic economics.

First few years they claw back R&D costs, after which prices start to fall. Once newer and better alternatives come out, prices further fall to shift inventory/stay competitive.

To use your analogy; Audi (part of VAG) have just offered me 30% discount off a current model vehicle to shift new inventory.

When the next Golf comes out, you take a look at what deals you can do on the previous model, and you'll be very surprised.

So no, RF kit isn't a rip off.
