Customs and VAT charge for one digital camera body and three lenses imported from Japan to UK?

Seen a good deal on a camera with three lenses from a seller in Japan, would be £1000 total but want to know if it would be worth it with the extra charges/costs included?

Would reeeeally appreciate if somebody could possibly help with calculating the potential import fees/extra costs would be for me!

    Easy to work out. 20% plus a tenner handling charge.

    so £210

      Yes, I figured that but I read on a photography forum that there would be VAT on the postage (which is included in the sale by the seller.) and also a charge per lens. I want to know all of the potential charges, not just the VAT and handling for the camera/cost itself.
