    What BradS said. KEH was the first benchmark I thought of also. Just checked and FM2n black bodies in EX shape are $172 while a EX 50 1.4 AIS is, interstingly $172 also. A 35 f2 AIS in EX is $235

    So that is a total of $751 and of course that is with a 3 month warranty and exchange provision.

    KEH would probably give you no more than .6X those prices for EX grade equipment but of course you would have to check with them for an answer to that.

    They are quite strict on their grading system I might add.

    Now that's the understatement of the year. I always try to buy "good" stuff from them, cuz I know it'll be what I consider "excellent." What they call "excellent" is more like "new without tags."

    I've gotten UG stuff from them that was better than 90% of eBay "mint" stuff.

    I've bought 35mm Nikon bodies from KEH that they called EX+ that were broken...they admit that they grade on cosmetics ONLY.

    Since the OP (and prospective seller) is in Belguim, I don't know how good KEH is as a reference point. I've read more than a few posts from European members here that suggest that shipping and customs cost add significantly to the final cost.
