From what I have heard it is reliable and frequently better than described.

That has been my experience having bought 3 lenses and a few accessories from them.

Their rating system is excellent as is their customer service. I've bought most of my lenses I have on there. And two DSLRs from them as well. In fact, I think their rating system is better than most. A friend bought a bargain lens from them and he said it looked as good as new.

January is always a very slow month for used equipment.

Their ratings are good, but they don't do detailed inspections. I've had to send some things back for refund or repair. They will take them back no questions though...

KEH is a great online store to shop with. They occasionally have great prices on certain items even when there isn't a sale. Then a sale like this comes up and great prices become excellent prices. I picked up a Bronica ETRS AE viewfinder. Shipping charges ate away at my discount but the total price was lower than anything I have seen anywhere in a long time.

Has anyone bought any of their used lenses? Wondering if their rating system is accurate.
I got a body, rated Ex if I recall. It had a noticeable scratch on top of the pentaprism bump - that was it. I only recently got 2 used lenses (one refurb w Canon 1 yr warranty) from BH. Options are there :-)

Their ratings are VERY conservative in my experience. You can shop with confidence at KEH IMHO.

Myself along with many others around here have purchased from KEH. My opinion along with most others is their rating system is quite conservative - meaning that a lens rated as EX (instead of EX+ or LN) is very hard to find anything wrong with it at all. Many have said they've bought bargain (BGN) lenses that work perfectly and only have some slight exterior marks or them. One thing to pay close attention to is if the description states if a lens comes with caps or hood - if the description doesn't say it comes with something it does not.

They also have a 14 day no-questions return policy - then on top of that a 6 month warranty on everything they sell (unless otherwise noted).

KEH has been around a long time with a very good reputation in my eyes - of course there are some who will jump in here now and tell me I am way off base.......

You're not. KEH is a local company for me and they're solid citizens IMHO.

How often do sales of this magnitude happen?

Every few weeks lately. Whoever's in charge now seems to want to clear the shelves...

But existing sale items are not subject to the SITEWIDE discount?

Just jumped for a 70mm Ltd. KEH is a great company, been doing business with them for a few years, no disappointments. 20% is as good a sale as I've seen.

Between the 35 bucks shipping to Canada, and the really bad exchange rate, no buying from me... the strong US dollar is definitely hurting exports to this individual...

And I just received a 31 from them two days ago. That's life.

But yes, their ratings are very good (=conservative) in my experience. But they are more "cosmetic" ratings than "mechanical". I bought an A135/2.8 from them which was perfect cosmetically, but had a sticky diaphragm. (Not visible gunk on the blades, but just a slow operation.) Just something to be aware of, but I continue to shop with confidence. Only thing is their shipping charges are on the pricier side.
