I guess, I live in Tokyo, I think the exchange rate to US is between 105 and 110 yen per US$...
 Yes... 95,000 yen...  Well, I guess $850... but that includes 10% sales tax here in Japan.

Yeah, I was really surprised that the lens had an FTZ attached to it... With a modern style lens cap on the bayonet.
When I contacted the seller it was clear they apparently didn't intend to sell it to me, because when I mentioned it they just replied, "kekkou desu" which means, "c'est la vie"... or "oh well" or just "no worries."  basically resignation.

They just said that they had a seller come into their shop saying they were moving away from Nikon to medium format, so were selling everything.. probably got a whole bunch of nearly new stuff super cheap.

shrug.

I guess the shop just didn't detach the lens at the correct place. LOL.
