    If you ship by FedEx or UPS, there's brokerage fees.

    If it's by Canada post or USPS I believe there is none, was that what they used? Congrats, you don't have to change your name anymore.

    It doesn't matter what carrier it is with. If it's going into Canada there are customs.

    customs may be a different thing, but I meant brokerage fees from private carriers (UPS/Fedex) that they charge when they bring it through customs.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
