Not to mention that the warranty is only valid in that country. Nikon USA warranties cannot be applied to redeemed anywhere else other than USA.

But I assume when I come back, I'll have to pay HST? What's the Washington sales tax?

Think it would fly if I don't declare it?

Any info would be appreciated!
What's your name or license plate#???

But yeah what everyone above said is will get charged the HST(12%) on top of what you paid for it(including tax)...

In regards to duty you MAY get charged, some items automatically get charged duty, while others the BSO has to change some things in the computer for the duty to apply....

but always declare, if you don't and they find out(they will find out), your camera can get seized, you will have to pay a fine, spend a few hours sitting in the office lobby, and will be flagged to get
sent in everytime you cross the border...not worth it imo

I wish I had as much time to waste as you do for $50 dollars.

For the sake of $50... I'd buy locally....

a) if the unit proves to be defective in the first few weeks you will be able to drive a few blocks rather than spend hours going back to the US
b) Nikon Canada will have NOTHING to do with your product if it is from the US...

You wouldn't pay $50 for the benefits above? Plus... if you buy locally (FS/BB) you still get price protection...

^ I was just about to post that!

Bestbuy has a decent deal on the D5100 + 18-55mm VR Lens Kit for $779.99, too.

add the Bestbuy camera coupon onto that:
