Ever since I picked up my camera several months ago, I've been itching to pull the trigger on a wide angle prime lens. I saw an eBay listing from Japan for a NOS (new old stock) Fujifilm XF 14mm f/2.8 R lens and the seller only wanted $480 shipped for it. It's one of Fujifilm's oldest lenses so it's not as popular with a lot of photographers, hence the low price. I submitted an offer and after a few counteroffers, the seller accepted my best offer of $399.95. (Less than half of retail for a brand new one.) 

Quick FedEx shipping that must have cost the seller at least $60 to send. Then partially refunded me $50 because there was a "delay due to incomplete documentation." Japanese people are the best!
