I did notice the same drift apart between description and photographs of Japanese sellers on Ebay. Sometimes unfortunately, they are just the only option for certain items. Years back I had zero problems. I recently bought an older 50mm Nikkor pancake lens and while optics are fine, the focus ring was quite loose. Their descriptions are often abysmal and especially the word "mint" seems to translate in Japanese Ebay seller dictionaries to "barely working" now. What a pity. My favourite sentence is: "no problem in the shooting". Yes, please.
Trying seller Fuji-San-ya now with a "Mint in Box" description. The item did not arrive yet. Don't tell me it is a bad one
