Nikon Fabre Photo EX microscope may not be available in the US

The Nikon Fabre Photo EX microscope (with DSLR compatibility) was announced over a month ago in Japan and there is still no word from Nikon US/Europe. I contacted Nikon US and it seems that this product will be available only in Japan. I also email Nikon support, but have not received an answer yet.

    I’d still be able to buy it from Japan though, right? That would suck if I couldn’t.

    • Can somebody get me one from Japan? Is it available in stores? Will they ship to the US?

        if you work…

        save up for a flight ticket for japan and spend all week looking everywhere for it until you find it, problem solved.

          yeah, and since being there why not to visit Nikon too? and bring some cameras, and also Canon, why not? and a 50″ TV, and a dog-robot…

            “rude” people…..

      • I live in Japan. If you seriously want one, drop me a line. You should still have my email laying around somewhere 😉

    we requested one from Nikon’s New Zealand importer, the reply they recieved from Nikon Vision was:

    “We regret to inform you that Fabre Photo EX is available only in Japanese market at this time.
    International department has no plan to release it to the overseas.”

    Now we know why Nikon calls Macro “Micro”.

  • I live in Japan. Email me if you want one.

    What’s the point of only having it available in Japan? I don’t get it.

      perhaps American and eu laws/compliance issues?

    Any more word on this microscope? I really want a portable microscope, and this looks great, but I’d much rather have one for my D200 than screw around with a Coolpix.
