There should be no duty on used goods shipped from the USA (though you may pay tax or a customs clearance fee).
You will end up paying tax/customs fee/ duty all together.No exception.The problem is that they should declare that this is used lens,but they don't on their side and you have hard time proving that this is not new lens,especially when you decide to purchase for few lenses together!

I myself have had nothing but good experiences with them.
I am glad you have had such good experience.

Maybe try facebook photography groups? there's one for ottawa equipment sales. I'll take a look for you to see if I'm not remembering a phantom lens.

edit: I derped. You want the FX version. There's a DX of it for sale up here. I also have the DX.
