I keep my fingers crossed.
I noticed they said they would ship the lens in free "Economy Shipping". I asked if the could upgrade it to priority mail with insurance and i would like to pay $ for that. We will see. I don't feel very confident to they now.

However that one is used instead of new (claims to be mint), and unless you are in Japan you would also be responsible for paying customs determined duty and any related fees.

I didn't buy this from them, but I bought a previous item straight from their web store, and I received multiple phone calls and emails pressuring to buy upgraded item. In addition, they wouldn't ship my item until I talked to them. It was a big lengthy headache. However, they did send the item and it was fine and I ended up saving hundreds. I would buy from them again if I was in the mood for a potential hassle, but it would have to be pretty good savings to be worth another potential go-round with them.
