    Bargain: Well used. Speaking from my Nikon F5 experience, it was well used, some metal showing, but worked perfectly.

    Got my rb67 body and all else from KEH as Bargain. As Marko said, "well used" but functions perfectly. KEH has a good return policy and reputation so you should be protected.

    I don't know how you plan to acquire the backs, but they had been troublesome for me so I bought my last two as EX quality and they were better. Someone else may chime in on this.

    I have bought many things from KEH and have been happy, except for Bargain grade backs.

    Hope this helps.
    Steve.

    Let me just add that the price difference between BGN and EX is not that much, if we're talking about rbs. Also note the inexpensive kit prices... good thing about a kit is that you can try everything out instantly.

    I always buy bargain grade and have been happy. Generally, I just assume that the backs are going to need their seals replaced so I've learned how to do it myself. It's very easy. Now that I can do it, I buy UGLY grade backs for dirt cheap.

    My BGN grade RB Pro S body works perfectly fine and doesn't look too bad, either.

    I purchased my M645Pro as part bargain grade, while other components of it were very-good. While the back I purchased from their eBay store started out alright, it soon developed some problems. Also the Sunpak 622 flash was DOA.

    A new back, is in order, as well as a brand new 622 from B&H. Otherwise, I've been very pleased with everything I've purchased from them, starting a decade ago.
    If the lens doesn't read "ZEISS", then it just isn't.

    I purchased two RB67's from KEH. Dropped the first one on concrete. Both were rated bargain, and both looked and worked great. I think they cost around $140 each for the body. The guy on the phone was helpful and shipping was fast. I have used them since to purchase 6 lenses for the Mamiya and my 4x5.
