Have bought a Bronica lens on Ebay from USA and UPS tried to deliver yesterday but I was out of the house. The note left by the delivery person says £18.23 payment is due on delivery. This is on top of postage already paid.
I guess this is a customs duty payment (something I had forgotten about living and trading in the EU) and the question is how is this payment calculated on secondhand camera equipment imported from the USA so that I can factor this in when bidding in the future? Two dollars to the pound makes USA prices seem very yummy!
