favorite / Best places for used lenses

What are your favorite places to find used Lenses? Either on-line or local chains, etc.

Well, ebay used to be OK before the K10D and K100D started selling so well. Many of the prices of used lenses on ebay have doubled in just the last year, and some had doubled in the year before that too. You can still find OK deals, but new lenses are starting to get competitive price wise.

One that is fairly local to me is Vintage Visuals in Calgary AB. They have treated me fairly with three exchanges so far. They also have an extensive list of neat Pentax stuff.

Go to random places that may or may not stock old/used equipment. Some shops might have quite a few Pentax lenses...the fewer customers looking for what you are...the better

Local, mom n pop shops seem to have the best assortment...plus they're willing to shoot the breeze with you
