    Has anyone ever purchased something used from bhphoto or any other place? If so, what kind of experiences have you had?

    Also, how can Amazon say they are cutting the price on the 50D when Canons price is $1399?

    most of mine was used of FM. one lens was in much worse shape than stated, but seller refunded. one lens was a sketchy deal with western union over seas, but he came through. body was a little weird, but was fine.

    I've never bought anything used online but thats cause BH and Adorama are just an hour away so I rather just drive in and see it before I buy it. Never had a problem though.

    i've also bought used equipment from members of fm and potn. got a lens with focusing issues from someone on fm, but i pm'd him about it after getting it and he refunded before i even shipped the lens back to him. :cool:

    I have never purchased any major equipment used from b&h, only small accessories and have had nothing but good experiences.

    i've bought 100 percent of my used equipment from keh.com, and they easily sell the best quality used equipment you can buy. i always buy EX and EX+ though. they've ever returned the 12 dollar oldschool nikon p&s film camera when i bought it and it didn't work. great choice to go through them.

    bought a few used lenses from adorama. the condition is as described but they're generally missing the lens case and hood, which can be around $100 combined. if youre only getting about that much discounted it isnt really worth it.

    i also purchased my 1dmk2 used from adorama and the condition was about as described.

    I've bought my body and 2 of my lenses used, no problems with anything. 2 things from ebay, 1 from an OTer, everything worked fine.
