I think a $1000 camera is worth $1000. If I can get it cheaper, great, but it's still an experience worth $1000.

Well the value you place on something personally is of of no relevance to this argument of the profit margin on a camera, justifiable or not.



Totally agree. It is unethical to charge more than parts + materials + R&D + moderate profit margin, even if the market is happy to pay it. (see my previous post on the Sony F35, which no studio used to paying tens of millions in production costs PER FILM, had a problem paying $250k for, even though it probably cost Sony $1500 to make)
