No- I'm pretty sure customs aren't added on packages sent via regular mail.

There are no customs fees when moving camera equipment from Canada to the USA, due to NAFTA.

That's the D-FA version, which is newer and much more compact. I've actually been using it until this FA version came in.

I prefer the FA becuase of the limiter and its reputation as being the finest Pentax macro lens after the FA* 200mm- it also has a marginally different optical construction than the D-FA.
