It seemed a bit unfair to leave out all our friends from outside the UK and Ireland. So they now have their own E-30 kit to compete for

I think this will please the good number of 'foreigners' on the e-group here!

Re: Competition to win a fabulous Olympus E-30 kit

I think you should clarify: Is there one competition for Great Britain and one for the rest of us?

Basically yes

You have a disadvantage being in Norway, as I understand that even competition prizes are taxed when they are imported into your country?

Well, compared to the full price of the camera, that wouldn't matter much, as it is 25% of the English price, and we don't have to pay customs taxes on photographic equipment. All in all it would turn out to be a good deal when () I win...
