HarjTT I remember you mentioned having bought the
14-54 ZD from Cameta Camera NY and having it shipped
over to the UK.

Well I had ordered the 14-54 Zuiko from them and the
status on ParcelForce page shows:

Did you also pay any Custom charges and Import VAT ? If yes then
how much were those ?

I tried looking up the HM Revenue and Customs website
but they haven't mentioned any specifics for Non-Gift items.
All the information printed there seems to be for items sent
as Gifts.

Do lemme know in case you still remember.

Hi Gaggu

Sorry about the delay - I did get hit by the VAT by "Parcel force" and I ended up paying it as well but it still ended up being cheaper than buying the lens from the UK. From memory it was about £40-60 and some of that cost was made up by a Parcel Force delivery charge. I'll check tomorrow and let you know exactly how much I paid.

Hi HarjTT,

Thanks a lot for taking the trouble )

Well ... an additional £40-60 still doesn't
make it close to £449 we'd have to pay in
UK for that lense
