$400 for Voigtlander APO LANTHAR 90mm F3.5 SL for PETAX
Posted By: Stavri, 03-05-2015, 07:08 AM

This lens is very good, as good or better than the Bokina, and it goes to 1:1. I believe the Bokina would sell for the same if not a little more. Something to watch out for this seller is that he tends to make his prices fluctuated staging these sales, increases the price then lowers them the following week.

I have the bokina so I don't want to spent $400 just to satisfy my LBA. I bought a few lenses from japan this year, they don't declare the full value usually, so the price + shipping would be what you pay for the lens I'd assume.

Import duty for camera lenses from Japan to the U.S. is only 2.3%, so about 9 bucks on this lens. There is no added VAT or sales tax.

Falsifying customs forms, on the other hand, is a crime carrying up to $10,000 in fines and 5 years in prison. Furthermore, most shipping insurers will only insure an item up to the declared value.
