Would this be legal, can it be done?
Apr 16, 2005

Hello, this is just a question of saving money. I've been looking around for lenses for my Eos Digital Rebel 350XT, and most likely I will stick with the following setup:

Canon EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 II (kit lens) + Canon EF 55-200 mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM + Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II. In Finland this would cost me about 540 €, which equals $680.

However, going for more expensive and better lens like the Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM in addition with a Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II and a at this stage unknown zoom lens would actually end on a price of $1500... you see the huge difference, right?!

So, let's compare prices for the Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM: in Finland 790 € (= $990) and in the U.S. only $600 (= 480 €). Buying this lens from abroad from a friend, who'd be mailing it to me as a gift would save me about $500!? Or am I wrong? How about this being legal?

Could someone please help me?
