Buying from Adorama


Hey guys, I want to buy this Canon 85mm and 60mm from Adorama. Do you know how much Customs Duty I've to pay if I buy from them ? Any idea ? These are for my friend, I'm just a noob.

Re: Buying from Adorama

Dont buy from there, the customs and the shipping will make the deal unviable for you, buy it from here in India only.

I wanted to post the link to the relevant website for you to calculate the duty, but as a new member I'm not allowed to post links.

Contact me helen.oster[AT]adoramacamera.com and I can email you the info

I must respectfully disagree. No single site has the absolute lowest prices on everything. I got my hood from Adorama (the ES-62 for the 50mm f/1.8) and it was the lowest price anywhere on the net. Most of their stuff is on par or cheaper than Amazon and B&H, and then there's the convenience of being able to order from Adorama via Amazon itself.

Re: Buying from Adorama

According to Chapter 90, Part 9002, Photographic lenses will incur a 10% charge per unit.

http://www.cbec.gov.in/customs/cst-0910/chap-90.pdf

Since Indian customs are SO awesomely transparent, I have no idea whether the 10% will be on the invoice value (basically calculated using the total value of the order including shipping) or on the value of the item alone. I've experienced both

Re: Buying from Adorama

The customs will be calculated on the price of goods. So it's 10% Customs Duty + 20% Additional Duty which is a pain in the a$$. What if someone, say Stoney, send me the stuffs declaring as GIFT ? Or I buy one lens and Stoney declare the value something not more than $100 ?

@Manish bhai, price is too much here and I'm paying with PayPal. Although JJMehta accepts PayPal but charges too much.
