Import Duty etc can be high. Might be worth asking some of the folks who bought via Digital Rev - it seems a steal, but they don't include Customs & Excise, VAT, handling charges etc.

The penalties for coming through customs not declaring could be high, wiping out any chance of profit (and flagging you on future trips). Also - for Canon - aren't the warranties region specific? I looked at Gibraltar import, but in the end the tax cost after declaring, and the issue of a non-Europe warranty ruled it out.

I just bought a nice low shutter count (6500) 1D Mark IV for $3200.  I think you might have trouble selling for more than $4000.  B&H is selling them for $5000, but you are not B&H.  You might do better than $4000, but enough to justify the effort/risk?  What is the $ value of your time?

He's an idea: Buy 1 and.... take photos with it.

I also just bought one (30000) shutter count cosmetically perfect for $3200, I don't think I would spend $4000+ especially now that the 1dx is to be shipped, I would expect a flood of used 1d4 on the used market!!!
canon stuff...

So if you want to do it legal :D 2600 plus VAT 20%= £3120 Do not think there are any duty on digital cameras. So question is: Can you make a fair profit with this?? I.e. selling for sa £3500??

I bet once the 1Dx start shipping you will see a drop in 1D4 prices... you better hurry up  ::)

I would touch just wouldn't buy!  ;D

Would hate to see someone loose their shirt on the deal.
Wonder how it turned out.
