Crazy price for DA* 50-135mm F2.8 in Japan

In US this lens costs 820 USD
In the Netherlands it costs 900 Euro
And in Japan it even costs 120,000 Yen

Oh, US is much cheaper than the Netherlands and with current Yen exchange rate the price in Japan even goes above 1,000 Euro, getting close to a factor 2x.
- Oh, the K-x kit price is very comparable (with 10%)

Pentax, I am looking for complete set, so only acceptable prices for K-x with 18-55 mm kit lens is not enough to keep me from looking at other brands.
