US may not have a federal sale tax or VAT but they do have an import duty approximately 4.6%

UK (and much of Europe) also has import duties on some photographic products

Those duties are equal across the EU, because it's one giant customs area

Tax evasion by buying in person in Switzerland is also well-known...

Ten years ago I emailed a Swiss store with a question about how that would work out with taxes (honestly didn't know back then). They emailed me back to just not declare it at the border, that it was 'only an 8-hour drive' for me and requested that I bring a case of fresh mussels. Lol.
