cheap fa77?

sale-point.com - Pentax SMC P FA Objektiv - 77 mm - F/1.8 - Pentax K - Limited Edition

has anyone had any experience of this website? this price is cheaper than it would normally be in the UK, is there going to be a large amount of tax added on on entering the UK?

for the uk it is relatively cheap- 533 vs 800ish.
i have come to the conclusion that some sort of tax must be going to be incurred. i am not sure what this will be yet.
import VAT?

Come on - grow up.
The sales stores are located in Bangkok, the site is only attractive due to price. Yes, it will cost you a little fortune to import the lens and have it shipped to your place. A return will be even more fun. Any price tag (much) less than B&H is somehow wrong. There is a Chinese place that will sell you a 2.8/300 FA new for $2000... interested? You try first.
Check out the location of the website - stores, phone numbers. Try the address, ask questions by e-mail - check out if the shop is still online within a month :-) Oh yes and most important: never trust anyone.
