haris, This puts matters in a different light! Old gear is, well, old. Shutters gum up and bellows develop leaks, plus the costs you mentioned---shippping, duties, etc... You might be better off finding a reputable dealer in the EU and dealing with them directly. Tell them what you want and how much you want to spend and let them fix you up. Robert White in the UK comes to mind, but there must be others too. FWIW, See if you can find an Agfa Universal in either 5x7 or 8x10. Good LUck!
