concerning custom fees in France, for some of the small parcel, most of the time, there 're no custom fees (I did not have any for my Bessa from Mr Gandy). Maybe because some of them as declared as gift.
Last week, I ordered a digital cam for my father, the ebay seller sent it using FEDEX and that was the error, now french custom is asking for 64 euros. I'd be carefull nextime and buy only when "plain" USPS is used.
