Most definitely strange. Which store sells it for 380 in NYC? The list price should be somewhere around 800 EUR/USD in Europe. I bought mine in a mint condition used at eBay for some 400 USD, which I thought was a good price.
One should be careful with used AF 20mm/2.8D's, since they are pretty sensitive mechanical wise that is. There are obviously also pretty much spread on the optical quality

In England, the list price is very high but if you shop around in the shops, adverts and the web you can find these going for £360-£400 or $600 roughly. If you take out the VAT of 17.5%, the price comes to around $400-450, so it's not so bad but some are definitely grey market, but worth every penny IMO.
I also paid $400 on e-bay 2 years ago. Now it is usually sold for around $350-$380 used in mint shape. New it sells for $440 at B&H with Nikon US warranty and $420 with international warranty. B&H is a lot more honest than AAA.
This lens is worth every penny it will cost you. It's wonderful. My favorite!!!
