KEH Grades

I decided on buying some lens from keh, and they have it in both bargain (for 80 bucks) and EX (140). I've read the description of the conditions of the lens in the site but was hoping to hear more from experience from people who might have bought there, as if it is really worth it going for the grade up or staying in the bargain mode... is it true that IQ is not affected? I can afford the 140 but if I am geting the same results, why pay more for the same?

Thanks

BGN is usually good enough - they judge quite strictly; it usually means that glass is flawless (that was for me, at least); the barrel might have slight scratches or blemishes - but nothing too serious.

That's my experience as well.
