I used to have the Z1070 and loved it but alas news of the imminent release of the ZX1 caused an erection and the rest they say is history.
I bought the ZX1 from Price-Japan with an agreed Customs limit, they will work with you if you get my drift, I don't expect to pay more than £30.
I messed up with the F887 from my normal Japanese seller so I've been hit for £20 Customs (I declared $50), there will be no Customs on the PHA-2 as I rectified the amount with my seller (you're allowed £30 anything over and your taxed, safe bet is to declare $35 (USD). There is a Customs delay by using EMS but this down to Royal Mail's inept Customs procedure, you can't pay until it hits your local depot but they'll tell you how much but won't accept payment, which is stupid beyond belief as it looks like it's added 48hrs to the delivery (it was sent Sat). With DHL or UPS it's delivered within five days including Customs clearance.
The ZX1 is being shipped by DHL so will be here 5days after release... my other gear comes via EMS which is more less fully-tracked, if you work with your Seller and agree everything before buying you won't have any problems, the only reason I'm declaring anything on the ZX1 is because we've done a group-buy for three units.
I'll let you know in the next few days how the F887 sounds.
