    Hi all,
    It seems the Olympus deals are much better in Canada and CAD is cheaper USD, so I am thinking about purchasing a EP5 + lenses from a Canada online store and shipping to US.

    Has anyone done so? Beside the extra shipping cost, which is negligible, are there any other issues? Like custom duty, warranty?

    Found the answer in this forum. Warranty is honored in US and usually no duty/tax.
