Anyone bought lenses from ebay shipping from China / HK / Australia?

Did you receive the item in good condition ? Did you have to pay customs ?

i recommend you checkout eglobalcentral. Cheaper than eBay especially when they have sales. No duties/taxes and fast shipping from my experience.

I second this.

I bought a cheap XC 50-230 lens from here and I've been super happy with my purchase. I probably wouldn't use it for super expensive lenses as you might be screwed if you need warranty help, but otherwise it's a good grey market shop that also delivered pretty quickly and without issue.

Any recommendations on fuji lenses...?i recently bought a cheap helios-44m f2 58mm for my xt20 to play around, but i find it's not as sharp as i would like as im used to my nikon 28-70mm 2.8 lol. Also i just like the convenience of autofocus compared to manual focus...

Mainly looking for a lens for potraits, but also maybe wide enough for a bit more versatility

23 1.4 or 35 f2, both sharp and versatile.

I've had both and prefer the rendering of the 23 1.4.

Is this a good deal ? 899 usd for xt20 with 50 mm prime. Or 18-55 lens is better ?

Going to ship to Chicago and there's no tax. Just the exchange rate of 1.33 cad.

If you're still looking at the XT20, there's this deal: https://www.amazon.ca/Fujifilm-X-T20-Mi ... 3AFujifilm

It's the same regular price drop across the board at other stores, but today only, Ebates is giving 12% cash back on Amazon in all departments. So you would get a cash back of about $126 from Ebates on top of the sale.

If you don't have an ebates account, consider using my referal link ;) https://www.ebates.ca/referrer?referrer ... D&src=Link
