Emanuel, My experiance is different. I have been charged duty on most equipment I have bought in the US and shipped to Canada. This includes electronic flash, lenses, darkroom equipment. I now ask to have it shipped by mail where possible, since UPS charges such high brokerage fees and usually gets the category wrong.
