Oh, and one other concern: Canadian duties on some of the stuff gets a little stupid, however...
One reason I have not seriously considered KEH was that they seem to perfer to use UPS as a shipper. Many times I have received items by UPS with a extra 50 dollar charge for "brokerage" this for filling a one page form and advancing the duty/GST/HST.
I now simply avoid receiving anything from teh USA via UPS.

Recently ordered a Mamiya 127mm f/3.8 lens for the RB67, with the 45mm and 82mm extension tubes, in BGN grade. The total was $82 including shipping. It's all beautiful, although obviously used, and works perfectly.
I don't know what I'd do if KEH wasn't around. Maybe have money in the bank....
I've been buying from them for over 15 years and have never once had a problem with anything. I wished they hadn't moved across town, though. It was so easy to pop by there and pick up some new goodies!
Bought a Mamiya C330 body from them about 3 weeks ago. It was malfunctioning, so I called on a Saturday afternoon. They emailed me a FedEx return label. Just received it back, and it now works fine. No cost and no hassle! Highly recommend them.
