In Oz it even "better" - Pentax 50/1.4 $209USD in USA and about $509USD here :shock::shock::shock:!!! So even with P&S and all duties it is still cheaper to get it from B&H. I have use them - appears to be no problem at all.

But did you have to pay extra fines (like extra duties, etc).
I just want to pay the price to B&H and get the product directly and not being fined by customs. How did the shipment worked out for you KSV?

To be able to pick up parcel from USP I have to pay GST (aka VAT) and some king of "custom fee" - around $50AUD. Sucks, but still became cheaper then locally

Yes that sucks big time. Damn that's not great if prices are also so high in OZ. I was hoping prices were also somewhat lower in OZ, because I'm going to Australia in august for 1 month

But $50AUD, is not to bad. I'm afraid I'll have to pay VAT20% of the total price :sad:
