Tamron SP AF 90mm F2.8 Di Macro for Pentax K.

Hello. I am looking to buy a Tamron SP AF 90mm F2.8 Di Macro for Pentax K mount in good condition in Canada only. I don't want to have to pay duties and taxes if I buy from the USA. I will use Paypal. Thanks.

I'm from Montreal and I bought quite a few used lenses from the US and never had to pay import duties and taxes. Maybe I'm just lucky.

Anytime I imported anything into Canada I had to pay GST + Provincial taxes, along with brokerage fees - regardless of where I lived, which included Quebec, Alberta and BC; however in Alberta there is no Provincial tax.

That's strange. Apart from the US, I bought so many stuffs on eBay, mainly from HK and China, never paid a dime on import duties and taxes. Maybe they were sent as 'gift'?
