    No kidding. And the seller had a BIN price of $80!! Finally an honest seller not preying on the fears of the gullible public. Maybe he\she didn't know of the 20x24 that just sold for $491. I didn't notice what the shipping charges were, though. That's where you make the real dough on AZO (and Chinese 16x20 cameras).

    Hmm,

    Seems to be an honest seller, the shipping cost to me here in Montana would only be $7.85, which for paper is just about what it would cost..

    Hmm, don't see that to often

    I continue to be confused about why the idea of using the free market system to sell something for the highest possible price would make a seller anything less than honest? Unless somebody lies to you, they may be expensive, but it hardly qualifies them as being dishonest.

    It doesn't. But calling the seller a thief is easier than admitting you were stupid to pay so much. :wink:

    If you are referring to my post, I was being sarcastic (based on prior posts regarding the price of AZO on eBay). I agree with your point of view - if they can get $500 for a box of AZO, more power to them.

    I think I just came up with a sideline. I will buy a load of AZO from B&H or Adorama with my regular orders (usually buy one every third order anyway) and hit it up with a markup of $90 BIN, plus a $12 shipping charge...

    Then when the distributers run out, I can triple or quadruple the price, and retire to an island in the Pacific... Maybe I can store it all with my truckload of Rodental, Amigall, and Super XXX
