I bought a 50mm Bronica lens from them some time back. I believe it was "good", and when I got it the lens looked pretty much new despite a tiny tiny speck of dust on one of the elemts. It didn't effect the image quality at all and I was very happy. I've also sold some stuff to them. They're really great to deal with and wont hesitate to buy my next camera from them.
I picked up, all in bargain condition; Hassy 503cx chrome, a12 back and waistlevel finder. $205 for the body, $80 for the back and $50 for the finder and it's all in GREAT shape. The back is older (74) but functional, the insert was well used but fully functional. I've always bought bargain grade and have never had a complaint.
4x5 film holders, a pentax 645 insert, minolta autometer IV.. All was an extremely good deal. Always pleased!
I have made 2 purchases from keh,
first was a lens in excellent condition - looked like new; and second was bargain graded camera and lens, camera had some scratches, but works perfectly, lens has one tiny scratch on the coating that doesn't affect image quality.
I would buy from them again and would not hestitate to get a bargain graded items
I just made my first purchase from KEH and received the items today. Everything I ordered (Camera body, prism and lens)was in Bargain condtion and I have to say I'm suprised at the condition. All three are better than I expected. And excellent customer service, too? You bet I'll buy from them again.
Searching my way to perplexion
One thing I'll say that they're not so good on are lensboards - I can get brand new technika style lensboards that fit my Shen Hao for $20-30 each. Most of their used boards are $60-80 (I don't need to pay a $40-60 premium for the little Linhof logo). Other than that, they are an excellent place to shop for just about anything photographic.
