Hi Henry,

That's alot of gear to carry around!
I would check the fedral building in LA.
They should have a customs office there.
Just take all your equipment and fill out their form...
Quick and easy.

I'm taking an extensive trip and is considering
bringing all my Leica gears with me. The outfit
consists of 4 bodies (1 R4, 1 R6.3, 2 M6s) and 9 lens.
I might not use all these equipments, but would like
to bring them along in case I need the odd lens or
body in certain locations.

While I never have problems taking a couple of lens
and 1 M body in the past upon re-entry to U.S., but
the bulk of these equipment might give the U.S. custom
reasonable doubt that I purchased these equipment
overseas and impose duties on me upon re-entry. Have
any of you guys/gals declare your Leica goods before
exiting U.S. ? And if so, where and how do I go about
listing these equipment ? I'll be flying out of LAX
from Los Angeles.
