I was too late, I got the item on the basket but during checkout I got a notice that it was out of stock. Well, next time then.

Bear in mind though that shipping cost to Europe is nearly $60, so bye bye deal.... Evil or Very Mad I was about to buy one when they had it in stock, but after adding it to the cart and see the shipping cost to Spain, I just canceled the purchase.

I contacted KEH asking if there is a cheaper shipping option and saying that current shipping cost is just ridiculous for such small/light item. They said they are sorry, but there is no cheaper option Confused

I have one .. I was only curious ...

in March I won a bid on eBay (UK) but I had to fight for it ..

I got it for 56 € + like 10 € shipping.
Everything that is mentioned in this forum the day next it's at ridiculous prices on eBay Smile Smile

Probably you would have to add custom taxes as well .. customs hit hard here in Portugal. (the taxes are calculated over the final price.. so shipping is included too)

I just received Wemacro rail this morning ...

Listed price in China .. 215 €
shipping 48€
Customs 115€

Total cost : 378 € Shocked Shocked
75% more than listed price
The joys of buying abroad...

António

I ordered WeMacro rail and other stuff earlier this year.

Base cost was 239,83€
Shipping 45€
Customs 10€
VAT 70,42€
Handling fee 12€

Total 377,25€

Customs ain't that bad, it is the VAT and shipping that really hurt me wallet.

yes.. VAT here is 23%

by "customs" I was meaning the bill altogether ... VAT + Import taxes, bureaucracy ... the sum of what I had to pay to release the parcel ..

Yeah, I assumed you did, I just wrote mine open. I could have saved 20-30€ if I did the clearance myself, but it is a real PITA and I was happy to pay to UPS for that.

There are often cheap tickets to the US, at least from sme countries. I accumulate my purchases in a friend's or family member's house in the US over the course of half a year or so, and then bring it back to Ecuador personally.

I requested one of my friends to buy from this link for me, he lives at Germany. 5 days passed but there is no progress. It says processing/pending but no luck. Where is this shop?

Jeez Shocked customs/import taxes here in Spain are very high, around 30% of item's value, but I see it is even worse in Portugal. That's just ridiculous...

I have a lot of tube lenses, actually more than what I need and use, but was just curious to try the Sigma LSA after seeing the good reviews.

Yep, if I had a huge batch of a particular lens or macro-related item for sale, I'd pay someone to make a hype thread about it on this forum, that seems to be a guarantee for success Very Happy see the Minolta DSE 5400...
