I would tend to agree with this. I've only purchased a couple things from KEH so far, but I've been quite surprised with the condition of the items compared to what they were marked as. The BGN Mamiya-Sekor 110mm is in near-mint condition. It's a bit dirty in the ridges of the aperture and connection rings. That's it. The BGN Calumet 45N I bought is about the same. A bit of dust from sitting around and a worn, slightly scuffed ground glass/fresnel, but other than that it looks pretty much new. Oddly enough it came with a rotating back that wasn't mentioned in the listing so that did offset the obviously cheap aftermarket ground glass and fresnel.
