Arn't gifts exempt from TAX and Duty going from US to EU/UK?
IF so get those relatives in Florida to post the camera + lenses you decide on over!
IF not, then well, you can take your chances, and you might not get caught, but if you do, then well, 25% payout i'm afraid.
But if you do go abroad anytime soon, then you could just accidentally put the box in your suitcase and forget about it and only remember when you get home and open it up
(I feel electronics should be like cigarettes - first 200 exempt from duty and tax! What a steal lol - PS Hong Kong apparently for some cheap high quality electronic goods, although Turkey and Iraq apparently get pretty cheap ass computer kit like cpu's and graphics cards, not sure about cameras though)
