Paying 10 percent GST for starters, let's be honest!

Would be nice if I can order from Germany to a delivery adress in Australia. My sister-in-law and her family is living there. Could be nice for gifts... avoiding international postal service and customs... Although I am surprised they are yet to open down-under.

There has been some interesting discussion - and anxiety - amongst camera retailers about Amazon arriving in Australia.

Rumours of retail’s ‘Death by Amazon’ exaggerated | PhotoCounter

The ‘Amazon Stomp’ | PhotoCounter

Personally I have mixed feelings about it. I don't have warm feelings towards many of the big retailers in Australia, but I do feel some sympathy for the smaller camera stores.
