    Re: KEH - good source for used lenses?

    Bought two Nikon batteries and charger. I knew the batteries needed to be re-celled when I bought the set. Good price and quick shipping. It was a lot less than some of the other lesser systems available. I also bought a lens without any issues, and like most have said, it was in better condition that stated.
    Regards

    Re: Is KEH good for LF lenses?

    Maybe, I'm the bad guy. I sold a high end DSLR to KEH, as I didn't want to sell it directly to anyone. It was not damaged in any way, but I sure didn't like it. I gladly took a big loss.

    I do the same with FOID.

    Buy high, sell low, the secret of any hobby...

    My post is directed at KEH. That is what the thread is about. I had a bad experience with items that I purchased and bad customer service from KEH. I do not like them and the experience made me realized that since I can afford not to buy second hand gear it is silly for me to chance the headache and hassel of equipment failure. If my equipment does fail, I feel better knowing it is covered and at least will be fixed or replaced my the manufacturer. It is also the same reason I have insurance coverage on my equipment. It is about piece of mind. I think KEH sucks, sue me.

    I've found KEH to be better than some other sellers of old gear. In the end it is all old equyipment and subject to the effects of age. KEH just happens to make it easier to "undo a deal" if one inspects and doesn't like what they got.

    NOTED. So given that your bashing of one particular vendor is complete and with little agreement, I will ask for the SECOND time that this thread be locked by the Moderator before it devolves into a flame war. I will also note that this thread is in the Gear forum and not in the proper buyer/seller advisories forum. Just sayin'

    Let him have his say. I doubt it's going to change anyone's mind.

    As noted earlier, it's hardly relevant to this forum anyway, with hardly any LF lenses being manufactured anymore.
