I'm trying to figure out why my local camera store would be SO MUCH more expensive than other sources, by a lot? When I bought my 35mm 1.8 lens, I was looking for a 50mm. I didn't research it, but the man who owns the store spent a little time figuring out what I wanted and what I needed, and that I'd probably like this lens better. So far, I do! So much so that it lives on my camera and I don't use either of my kit lenses. After much debate and consideration, I've decided to return my D5000 and all the parts that came with it (that I don't use) and buy a Nikon D90 body! I got mine at Costco, and they have a very generous return policy, and I still have 2 weeks to return it (plan on doing it next week, early on). Anyways, I called my local camera store and they sell the body for $899!!! Amazon has it for $765 new, as do other places for a similar price. I don't understand why they'd charge so much more than the "going" price? Is this something I could negotiate with them? Is that even appropriate? The only other major thing I've purchased from them was my lens, and I found out later I paid about $40 more for it than I would have from any other source, including Best Buy. These guys are reputable, they know their stuff... so why do I feel like something isn't right? What am I missing here??
