Don't say that until you see the prices of new digital gear.
When the 5Dmk3 came out I priced it with the 24-105 kit lens, then I priced it in Hong Kong plus the plane fare, guess which came out cheaper? (Actually, an EOS 3, scanner, and a few hundred rolls of Velvia turned out even cheaper again, I chose that and here I am).

At least film you can get shipped from OS under the $1000-mark and avoid import duties...
