    Hey, I've been meaning to buy the Sigma 30mm f2.8 and luckily I held off until now. This is what I've found when perusing Amazon.ca and I can't tell if a steal or if the customs and brokerage fees would essentially end up costing the same as the lens bought locally. So, if anyone has any experience with buying lenses from Japan off of Amazon please let me know. I can't see any mention of fees other than the customary "..may be subject to..." stuff.

    get it from digitalrev, I got the 60mm and the 30mm art lenses and neither got "caught" (ex british colony? HK?) in customs, and digitial rev promise to pay import tax if it does get caught out. (check their site, nice and cheap too)

    shouldhave said I live in the UK and delivery was very quick, 4-5 days both times, excellent packaging and cheapest prices too. Plus if you like Kia and co its always cool getting some digital rev pink tape around you package when you open it :p
