Can this price be for real?

Grey import I imagine, but even so, less than half the best price on Camera Price Buster (and less that someone is trying to sell a used one for here)

Re: Can this price be for real?

Might be legit - it's in Switzerland and based on the other items and feedback might well be used - there's no indication they're claiming it's new.
They're recently sold a 14-42mm EZ pancake for a more sensible used price.
Not something I'll ever need but might be a bargain for someone but I'd still be cautious!

Actually, they do state: "Digi Experts guaranteed that product you purchase with us are 100% brand new and authentic."

They do not claim that manufacturers' guarantees will be valid but offer their own warranty instead

I've never used them but I do have this lens and it's excellent.

Re: Can this price be for real?

Under the free delivery it says

'International items may be subject to customs processing and additional charges.'

Click in the info button an you get:

International delivery - items may be subject to customs processing depending on the item's declared value.
Sellers set the item's declared value and must comply with customs declaration laws.
As the buyer, you should be aware of possible:
- delays from customs inspection.
- import duties and taxes which buyers must pay.
- brokerage fees payable at the point of delivery.
Your country's customs office can offer more details, or visit eBay's page on international trade.

My hunch is this is a grey import and the seller is not paying the import duty which the buyer will have to pay, plus customs charges.

375 and no extra charges, but definitely a grey import.
