Customs wont charge you unless it's more than $1000.

Another question about warantee... does Pentax do the same thing as Nikon does with product bought overseas? IE: they say it's "Grey Market" and refuse to repair under warantee or replace.

Should I risk it with the DA* 16-50 from overseas?

Ordered my K20D from Digital Camera Warehouse website on Sunday night, the camera was delivered to my door at 11.52am Tuesday (today). Lightning fast.

They have shops in Sydney & Melbourne. Their prices on some things are ok, but it pays to do your homework as some lens prices tend to be a lot dearer here in Australia..

Hello, I am just wondering if you can answer a few questions for me:

1) The import paperwork = faster delievery?
No troubles with the paperwork from B&H. Only with UPS rip off clearance fees, but you cannot get away from them
QuoteQuote:
2) Is it duty free to order from USA?
No duty on cameras or lenses.
QuoteQuote:
3) As for the Canadian taxes, I have to pay at my door right?
Yes. You get ripped off by the CRA and your provincial leeches.
QuoteQuote:
4) Does b&h give us the Pentax international warranty card? What about for Tamron Lenses?
I have only bought the one lens from outside Canada recently, so I cannot answer this one, other than to say that Pentax doesn't seem to use a warranty card, just the bill of sale. Purchased inside Canada is two year warranty from Pentax, USA and International is one year

Thanks. I haven't purchased camera gear from outside of Canada before. Canadian pricing is just ripoffs.
Not from every one. I have seen reviews about Prodigital2000 that seem to indicate they have the lowest prices anywhere. I was not displeased with my K10D + D-BG2 + DA 12-24 from Galaxy. Paid a bit more than I could have for the DA* 50-135, but they had it.

Today I received a Pentax DA 18-250 lens from Cameta. There was no warranty card with the lens. Is that normal? The receipt said I have to return within 14 days (6 of which are already past) and I haven't yet received the K20D body to try it on. Should I be concerned?
