Its well known that shipping half way round the world makes things cheaper.

I proved the theory personally ten years ago by buying a Russian telescope from the US; 30% less than the best price from Russia or the UK.

I've also seen figures indicating that it used to be possible to re-import an MG-F from Japan cheaper than buying one direct from the UK in the UK.
