Re: Buying from overseas - pros and cons?
Like Rob I've bought nearly all my gear from overseas. I'm hoping the Aussie $ will reach parity with the US$ and will purchase a 500 lens.
Warranites might be an issue as I've seen on some items that it is only valid in the U.S.
You only have to pay GST if the purchase price is in excess of $1000. Sometimes it is cheaper to purchase (say 2) items separately and pay freight for both to keep the cost below $1000 on the parcel.
