If you do not mind this:

Customs (this is quite normal actually - no complaint) - "International buyers are fully responsible for all customs duties and fees."

Shipping: ca. $50 which seems quite reasonable to me.

Shipping insurance - "For contents having a value above $200, the loss, theft of damage will be compensated up to $20000 by paying additional shipping insurance fee, which is optional."

Warranty - "The item carries 1 year limited warranty that is only in Japan. You can also buy 3 years warranty for this item, click the link below now."
(I have checked and the warranty will run to about $110)

So, legit? Probably. Cheap or a good deal? Naaaah, look closely and you'll be adding a couple of hundred bucks before you can push the shutter....

[EDIT] I checked the Indonesian Customs Tariff for you:
Duty on the camera will be 0% as in most countries but it is the VAT (GST) which will kill you at 11% over the purchase value and the shipping cost.
