I noticed a string of Nikkor 200-400mm f/4 lenses popping up on e-Bay lately. I've seen at least five of them in the past two months. They were all listed by different sellers with 0 feedback. All had VERY similar and very short descriptions (lens was used 5-10 times, no issues etc.). All were originating from Canada but specifying that the lenses were US-versions. Pictures were all very poor and done over wrinkled bedding or something alike. Prices were bid up from $2,650 to $4,500. I found them very suspicious. Anyone else noticed those?

P.S. Here's the link to latest one sold yesterday:
