That at least is re-assuring.
I'm looking for an AF 20mm f2.8D lens; and this guy is selling them at 1/2 price.

I hope it's not, but .......

And a little more research shows that address as being this.
Make of that what you will?
A family run business based in Lancashire according to their About Us page., but you might not want to take that for granted as their General Enquiries page then seems to identify them as Leyton Cameras?????
This 12 months warranty covers manufacturing defects developed with your product during the valid warranty period which start from the date that have received the order from Leyton Cameras.
How can I cancel my order?
You can send an email direct to us at email@example.com . We will send you a cancellation confirmation email upon receipt your request.

Also known as 'Silver Centre'.
Apparently 'Leyton Cameras' is a trading name
OK. Thank you all - they are, apparently, connected with Olimpic Cameras, which it seems is a scam and presently unavailable, through Silver Centre (UK) Ltd. who, in a pin-striped suit and a trilby hat, complete with Woodbine in the corner of their mouth, explain it all away in the most plausible of terms .

There are plenty of others on the market at more realistic (expensive) prices
Your contributions/directions have been much appreciated.
The following from a search for Leyton Cameras, and directed to a similar forum question.
Quote: DEFINATELY scammers. Would have been caught myself to-day but fortunately my banks fraud section stopped the payment even before I'd realised. When you enter your credit card details they will immediately attempt a transaction using them. If this succeeds I imagine a BIGGER TRANSACTION WILL FOLLOW.
On first look a plausible site but note: No telephone number. Address they claim to be based in Lancashire but 'trade' from a London address that doesn't exist. DON'T sign up. DON'T enter credit card details.
iv had lenses second hand from ice group with no problems theres lots about
I've no idea why I had reservation - probably the price - but I'm glad I did.
A salutary lesson
Try Panamoz. They are very good, cheap and reliable
For what it may (or may not) be worth, I bought this lens back in April from Microglobe. Including Special Delivery postage it was £399.
I have found that online retailer very reliable with several purchases made from them in recent years. Maybe not the cheapest but thoroughly reliable and 100% British.
Thank you both, for your pointers.
I'll follow each of them up.
