Ordering Lens from Japan
Dec 17, 2013

Hi,

I am in the market for an Olympus 45mm F/1.8 lens and I saw them selling for low 300s on EBay. However - most sellers ship from Japan.

As a US resident, what's the customs situation when ordering something like that? will I have to pay additional fees? did anyone ever order lenses from Japan?

Thanks.
