Vigilante welcome and ask away.
Dallas2, I agree on you should introduce yourself and ask a question unrelated to the OP (original post) in a separate post. This is called "hijacking a post" and is not good etiquette. Now with that said, have you done a search on the model camera and battery that you were quoted? A simple search on the internet will reveal the going rates for just about anything you can imagine. Then of course, you must add labor and some percentage mark up on the parts or items that the dealer is supplying, they are after all in the business to make money.
Keep in mind that you can purchase items off the internet cheaper for several reasons. First, when you are surfing the net it's your time, a dealer must pay someone. When you purchase off the net it's your money, a dealer has to use their capital. If the dealer keeps said item in stock then they have a capital investment setting on the shelf an must pay an employee salary & benefits to keep inventory and most likely also must pay and inventory tax as well. I'm, not defending the dealer but only trying to answer your "why" question.
