Why are so expensive umbrellas (perkier, Sam, Edwin, Pooky, Fhotoace, either)?

I was looking at some umbrellas, and very expensive. Why is a little piece of plastic so expensive? The one I need (as Canon does not offer one) is about $ 40, why? Http: / / www.amazon.com/Canon-ET67-Lens-100mm-Macro/dp/B00009R6UJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie = UTF8 & s = electronics & qid = 1231638027 & sr = 8-1 It's pretty bad Canon does not offer a dollar for a lens of 450, but making you pay $ 40 by a piece of plastic is the height

They really vary in price … replacing my 24-85 mm is less than $ 15, however, replacement of 400 mm f / My 2.8 is more than $ 550. I'm sure that has to do with the frequency of customers have to change their tone of lenses, due to damage or loss. I am constantly (Not very often, about four times in six years) to replace the lens cover $ 15 since I use it more than most of my other goals, so that is subject to more chance of being crushed. If you need an umbrella, you need an umbrella, so while $ 40 seems a lot of money, it seems now the whole how … just spend the money or not
