    I can only sum it up this way, I have NEVER been disappointed with a KEH purchase. Well, let me rephrase that, the only remorse I have ever had was the feeling that I the condition of the item was too good and that I could have gotten away with a lower rated one.

    Why not? It's a question that gets asked continuously, and current opinions are more valid than old ones.

    If you don't like it, why did you post in the thread?

    One point regarding KEH's business practices in general:

    If you order an item advertised as available at a particular condition (e.g. BGN) and they run out of it,
    they'll send you one in better condition (perhaps EXC) at the price they quoted for the lesser item.

    Consequently, what you received as a BGN product may not match the next BGN product.

    Believe their grading. it's accurate. If you receive something better just thank them for being a reputable business.

    I've bought an awful lot of stuff from them and never been disappointed.

    I have experienced this bump in condition a number of times.

    I've been a big advocate of BGN grade from KEH, and I've had great luck...my EOS-3 and PB-E2 (currently for sale in the Classifieds) plus plenty of Bronica stuff and a couple EF lenses.

    Ran into my first problem this weekend. An nFD 135 f/2 that I ordered is not indicating auto mode correctly to my T90. Of course I discovered this after they were closed for the weekend, so I'll need to call them on Monday. I don't expect any problems sending it back. But they don't have any others in stock .

    I'll post an update on Monday.
