I have purchased lenses from Auatralia and they were sent to me in the mail. I was NOT charged any duty.

It was a while back, but I was told by US customs that anything over $400 was charged a customs fee. You can avoid that by claiming the item is worth less, but then if you have an insurance claim, you won't get all your money back.

The problem with the EU is their VAT tax, which make things quite a bit more expensive than we here in the US pay, since we don't have that YET.
