    I switched to KEH after being burned a few times on fleabay. So far i have been more than happy with my purchases from KEH and their customer support. I recently purchased a mamiya 645 super kit that was labeled BGN and what i recieved was no BGN grade in my opinion it was EX+ at least. I will return to KEH for future purchases for sure.

    Here lately, I've noticed KEH is priced a little higher than other places. But I feel much more confident with KEH than Ebay. Many times, KEH's bargain is better than an ebay seller's mint. But KEHs photos are not photos of the actual item-they're stock photos. And you may not get the version pictured. For example, I bought a Nikon 35-135 AF. The stock photo showed the later version, but I got the early version with the narrow hard plastic focus ring

    Back when I was doing the used camera show thing, it was "policy" for a buyer to give you 60% of an item's true worth, e.g., if a camera was worth $300.00, the buyer would pay you $180.00 for it and they would sell it for $300.00. I'm sure the same thing is going on today (KEH too), but I'm not sure what percentage is being used.

    KEH is almost a 100% assurance that the product will be as advertised. If you can return it, with little or no hassle Try that on flea bay

    Yes, I too have noticed some things are higher on eBay than at KEH/Kohs/etc. This is partly due to more sellers using the buy-it now feature over the auction format. So asking prices tend to be at the same level, or higher, that similar items have sold for. I admit to being guilty of this, as I much prefer to list, sell and ship an item in 24 hours and be done with it rather than dragging an auction out over a week or more.

    I've found that often KEH's price is about the same as average ending prices. Not true for everything though.
    But when they are, it's nice to not deal with an auction and just place an order.

    I look at both. If I can buy from KEH I will otherwise its the bay. I got a Sinar rail from KEH for 1/2 to 1/3 the bay recently. But I've also had EX rated lenses from KEH that wouldn't auto focus. Right now I'm praying I will receive a purchase from eBay. I may have to deal with the bay over a fraud case on this one.

    Me too!
    How was I to know Auto-Nikkor didn't have anything to do with focusing?!?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I sold some old Olympus OM gear of my father-in-law's to KEH. Their offer was pretty low but fair. Three bodies and a few lenses, nothing fantastic, but the offer was around $250. Their conservative grading works against a seller, of course. I thought the deal was a fair one, I had no interest in selling the stuff individually, but I could perhaps have gotten an extra $100 at the 'bay; but I don't do PayPal, and the 'bay fees are something amazing.

    I've probably made that back by getting an FE2 and a FM2n for $45 each out of their as-is bin. Good shooters, one has some cosmetic corrosion around the viewfinder and both needed Jon Goodman's seal kits. I like KEH and will continue to buy stuff from them.
