Buying lenses from Japan: Good idea or bad idea? Bought a 600mm f/4 lens.

I bought an AF-S Nikon 600mm f/4G VR lens from Japan. It was $3300, and I intend to rebuild it. What is your experience buying from Japanese sellers? Good experiences, or bad? Were you charged a VAT or customs tax, and how long did the item take to arrive?

Looking forward to your replies.
