Your figure are ALL WRONG for the list price of the Nikon 800MM F/5.6 FLED in the "UK". List price from Nikon is 17,999.00 Pounds sterling without tax.

This is a good UK current street price source of information.

Consumer advertised prices in the UK have to include 20% VAT sales tax.

Excluding our VAT the advertised price is around £13,750.

A customer known and trusted by a retailer can often negation a deal.

That translates into USD$17,358.00 and not anywhere near $12,00.00 USD.. So the lens cost the same as it did when it was released and price has not dropped as you said above..
