Best Used Cams/Lens Websites...

So... I've been looking for a used cameras and lenses websites for a few days. I have already checked Adorma, KEH, B&H and our own forum, however they do not have good filters or dont have much materials. I've also looked into amazon and ebay general sites like but they are usually for general purpouses and don't have much about this stuff.

I would like to know if there are any specific websites that are used to buy and sell used camera and lenses (I'm pretty sure there might be at least one or two since we have many photographers around the world) where we can find all of those discontinued and rare stuff.

Thanks for your time in advance! =D

Adorama, B&H, Keh and this forum market place are my favourite.

You may also post a 'Wanted Pentax Items' in the Marketplace, and it may attract some undecided seller.

I'm still looking for a used K-5 from someone that for some reason didnt like it or changed to a higher end camera and a Sigma 100-300. But:

1) I'm not planning to buy them so soon.
2) None of those places have this things (and obviously half the world is looking for them with me).
3) The filters are not good and deliver either tons of useless topics such as already sealed offers or topics where users just comment about them.

I would just like to check some prices and go like fihsing you know... If some day near someone make a really good offer because they are lacking money or so, I would take the chance and buy it. So I would like to know if there's a webseite where I could check those things, just like amazon, but with more contents (e.g. rare stuff).

The problem with finding "rare" items second hand is that very few people will "stock" them. You probably need to bookmark as many places as you can and just keep an eye on them. These should include sites from other countries as well.

Addicted…

But eBay is still the largest source for old soviet equipment. Especially when you start looking on other eBay-sites than your local one.
