PRICE GOUGING AT AMAZON for 2 control ring adapters
2

Amazon has two control ring adapters for sale one used for $428 and one new for $599. Yes I know amazon will say they don't control what venders charge but this is ridiculous.

Price gouging?  This is not toilet paper.  If you don't like the price, you can wait until Canon gets some stock.  Should be this year.

Wait... is this a list?

One is being sold buy "INTER TRADE JAPAN Co.,Ltd." and ships from Japan.....and is also advertised on a number of other sites besides Amazon for same price. Close to half what you can get a XBOX series X for right now

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)

Nobody is forcing you to buy anything.  Don’t like the price?  Don’t buy it.  If nobody is willing to pay those prices, the seller will adjust accordingly.

Something is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it. It's not gouging if they:

A: Don't sell any or

B: Only have a few available

No, AMAZON does not have them for sale. They are providing an outlet for Marketplace Sellers to sell them.

Bingo. No, Amazon does not control this. It's like complaining about high prices on ebay, or at a local farmer's market. Amazon does not set the prices for 3rd party sellers, no more than a farmer's market owner sets prices for vendors that rent tables.

but this is ridiculous.

Shop elsewhere.
