Re: Website for used lenses

www.keh.com is probably one of the most popular ones. eBay.com can be hit and miss as well...

Re: Website for used lenses

Try borrowlenses.com (they sometimes have used gear for sale), B&Hphotovideo.com (used section), and Adorama.com (used section)... good luck.

I would second KEH. I have bought multiple lenses and bodies for them with no complaints. The one time there was a quality issue I returned it with no problems.

Re: Website for used lenses

I've done pretty well with eBay, but you do need to be careful about who you are buying from.

Re: Website for used lenses

I've used keh.com for at least a dozen years without a problem. B&H and Adorama are also good. keh has the biggest selection. I've never bought anything photographic from Amazon, but I've bought lots of other stuff from them without a problem.

Ebay is always risky. I've gotten collector cameras off of Ebay with mixed results. Only one was an out and out crook, but many others are not photographers and have very limited knowledge of what they are selling. As a result you often don't really know what you're getting. With collector cameras I don't care about things like the shutter speeds being off because I don't use them for serious photography, but if you are buying something to use, make sure the seller knows what he's doing and has a good return policy.

My advice is try keh first, them B&H and Adorama.
