    I am currently living in Germany and I recently bought a canon 5d mk ii off ebay from a company in Hong Kong. Does anyone know how much taxes or duties I will have to pay? I am starting to think that if I have to pay VAT and import duties, it would have been the same price to buy the camera in Germany...

    Doesn't it depend on what value was placed on the item by the sender? I know that people I sell to, overseas, always want me to put a lower dollar amount (which I really don't do) and mark it as a gift, which I do do. Not sure how it works so can't be much help. Maybe ask people there? I'm sure there's an online forum for photography in Germany...well, I think, anyway?

    I emailed the seller and he said he would mark the camera as a factory Warranty return which means the camera will waiver duty... Hopefully he's right :)

    Thanks for your reply
