Zone VI Camera
My recently purchased Zone VI arrived today. KEH rated it as EX, but I've seen others on the auction site listed as "MINTY" in what I would consider to be fair to poor. Not a wrinkle in the bellows, two or three small scratches and a little dust. Nothing else. Movements are easy to lock and focusing is smooth. I just wish we weren't having 40 mph winds today.
In short, I got the camera for a great price and in great condition. KEH is great.
And their 180 day warranty is the best I've found!!!!

I've purchased from KEH a few times, and have been absolutely thrilled with the results. Only issue is that they don't ship USPS, so shipping to Hawaii isn't very reasonable. My orders are usually large enough that paying $25 for 2-day shipping doesn't really bother me much.
Nikon F5 + MF-28 | 105/2.5 | 18/3.5

A little brassing, a few minor scratches on the base plate, had to blow out a little dust in the finder. It works perfectly. I have never bought an item from them that wasn't as described, usually even better.
However, I am not happy with the new website! It may be prettier, but it is a PITA to use in comparison with the old site. Anyone else have an opinion on that?

I will second, don't ever remember any purchase from them that wasn't under rated and always fast shipping.

I got a bargain nikon FA that should have been as is. It was rougher than I expected and they didn't mention a couple of missing pieces. Since I was replacing a dead FA and had the extra pieces i just kept it.
At the time they only had one other FA and it was EX rated and very expensive so I didn't have many choices.

Yeah, my opinion is that you are one hundred percent correct, the new site is a pain! The old site wasn't fancy, but it was certainly easier to navigate around in. Much easier to find things and the old site was much nicer to just browse around on, to see what kind of cool things they had for me to spend money on.

I would have returned it if it weren't for the fact that when I plugged my MV-1 into it, I saw that it had only seen 10 rolls of 24 exposure film. The camera had only 240 +/- shutter actuations on it.
I can't speak highly enough about KEH. I just looked at my account, and in the last year I've bought 45 items (11 order) online, and another ~20 items/3 orders over the phone. So about 65+/- items.
I have bought every grade they have, including UG and AS-IS. Of all those 65 items, I've had to send back one item, as it had very oily blades. They serviced it, and I had it back within 7 days.
The reps (Greco, Arthur, and others) are always a pleasure to work with.
Hmm.... the old vs new website. Yeah, I liked the old one better, but honestly, I've gotten used to the new one. Still like the old one better, but hey, I still find what I want/need, and that's all that matters. If you aren't keen on the site, it's no problem to call them and ask if they have something.
Just adding my 2 cents.
