    Looking to pick up some used lenses for my 20d.

    No place around me seems to have very much (if anything). Have one place I need to check today, but I was wondering if there is any place online that deals with consignment or used lenses, besides the obvious....ebay

    B&H sells used equipment, as does Adorama.

    I've purchased most of my used gear from FM members, some from eBay (but deals are rare because people will bid up to MSRP, NOT market value). Just employ some common sense. E-mail the person a lot, ask questions, pics, etc. If it sounds too good to be true, it really is.

    Sometimes B&H has some hot deals, they'll get a bunch of refurbs in and stuff, if you read FM they will usually post a FYI in the buy and sell when this happens, so FM is a good spot to scout for used gear. You can try stuff like craigslist, but I haven't been too successful in finding any good deals there.

    keh.com has some nice stuff too. :cool:
