    Is there any reason that the much loved Nikkor 17-35mm does NOT deliver an image as "cinematic" as this Nikkor 24mm prime? Only asking because a friend of mine feels any zoom-through lens looks...

    I'm under the impression that you pay GST as well as the appropriate PST (provincial sales tax) on delivery in Canada. But no duty is payable, as per Graeme's post above.

    So in Ontario:

    Thank you Evin. Glad they made you a Moderator. You know your stuff. I'm going to pass on the 20-35mm and keep looking. Cheers!

    Anyone used Keh.com to ship lenses to Canada? How'd it go?

    Sorry, Evin was that a reply to my question about the 20-35mm Nikkor? You're saying I shouldn't grab that one? I'd rather not spend $1200 on the 17-35mm if they're very close to being the same lens....
