Quote:I hesitate to ask, and if it's not proper to ask, just ignore it, but why so expensive in Lebanon? (California's a long way away...).
I inquired about it and asked people inside Canon Lebanon :
Two reasons lenses are expensive in Lebanon:
Lebanon is a small country, a small market, so they don't have same prices as the big dealers worst Canon Lebanon is buying its gear from Canon Dubai just like any local dealer there...
Second you have taxes and customs...
Prices here are at least 30% higher than US
