I'm careful to inspect photos of everything that I buy on eBay. My most recent purchase from Japan was for a NOS 50mm lens for my Mamiya 7. It was as described, but the seller didn't send the lens hood that had been shown in the photos. Several emails yielded no response, so I requested a return. Then they replied, and refunded enough to cover the cost of the hood that I had purchased from KEH.
