I'd love to see a before and after price list. Call me cynical. They have a used K5IIs body in Ex+ for $468. B&H sells the same body new for $497. Less than thirty bucks more for brand new - would you buy the used one? I suppose some people would. And if you take a look on eBay you'll find lots of K5IIs bodies for even less, some from highly reputable sellers.

I believe KEH only stays in business because there are folks who hate eBay. I do too, but not badly enough to buy and sell at KEH.

I've had very good luck with KEH. Not selling but buying. They lowball you on your equipment. But their prices can be very competitive and their equipment is rated very conservatively. I got both my FA31 and FA77 from them at great prices. Not everything is priced great, but if you keep your eyes open, you will find good deals.

They very rarely have lenses that I haven't seen available in the marketplace on these very forums. I'd personally rather buy from a fellow Pentaxian anyway.

I fully agree... I always buy from here first, KEH second, and everyplace else is a distant, distant third. I think I'd only buy from certain sellers on ebay, but I haven't bought from them in so long, I wouldn't know who to trust.

I got a Canon 5D from them last year. They are a bit pricier than most of the people in the marketplace but they do have a 180 day warranty. I might have gotten one for $50-100 less privately - but it was right there. They charge tax and insurance, so that adds up, too.

The adds-on are a significant amount of money - especially for small things such as lens and body caps (if you care about plastic bits). I wait to buy those until I'm buying a larger item.

Just wanted to bump this up a bit with a reminder that KEH's Pentax sale ends today.

I have enjoyed making many purchases from KEH; just ordered a LN- condition camera body this morning. I have had, in dozens of purchases, only 2 items that disappointed me, but phoned them and immediately received return labels and credit for the items. They are super helpful via phone, too. With rare exception, their selling prices are pretty reasonable, especially considering their conservative grading and the 6 month warranty.

Was browsing through KEH and noticed that they were offering a EX+ condition DA 50 1.8 for $115 plus shipping (which comes out to $97 with the coupon), if anyone's interested:

EDIT: did a quick Google search and realized that this isn't much of a deal these days (a year ago it would have been).

Many deals are nothing special but $329 for a Like New 18-135mm is not a bad price at all.

Yeah, and then take an extra 15% off that. Not bad at all.

The DA 15mm f4 for $418 before discount is mighty tempting too.
