I had a large inventory of bodies and lenses for a particular brand (Pentax) and sought quotes from both MPB and KEH.MPB said they were not interested in that brand. I have dealt with KEH many times and I'm extremely pleased with them.

I have bought and sold to KEH for years. Sales to them have always been at one of their buying event so if it’s something they can’t use, I take it with me. I found their prices to be fair.

I have some expensive lens for sale : Nikon Nikkor 70-200 mm f 2.8 ED VR ll, before I'm send my lens maybe someone give me opinion - can I trust them ?


I have done business with both and had good experiences. KEH sometimes takes a little long to respond. Also have traded in equipment to Cameta Camera, with excellent experience. You will get 50-70% of what item will sell for at retail. I would try selling on this site first. If no luck, any of the above will work.

KEH, MBP, Adorama, B&H are all trustworthy.

However, I agree with a previous response. They will offer you wholesale value for your lens. That will something like be 50 to 60% of what you might get for it, if you instead sell it directly to a buyer yourself (Craigslist, eBay, or through the classifieds here on UHH, etc.)

Of course, it's much easier to just sell it to one of those stores.

Bought a D500 Nikon Reconditioned from Adorama and a 12-24mm f4 from KEH. Had problems with the exposure. Nikon service was useless... Since body and lens was new to me I bought another 12-24 from KEH and discovered the body was at fault returned it with no issues and bought new 500 from B&H, returned the extra lens to KEH after the 30 day trial period with no costs to me. Within the last 2 months I sold a D80, the kit lens and 2 other AFS lens. I did try to sell a couple of those lens on Ebay and after 2 weeks decided to just sell them outright to MBP. Adorama gave me a price unseen and MBP did also. MPB was $95. more. Sent equipment to MPB in postage paid box. After they inspected equipment they agreed to the price they gave me and deposited the money in my account in a couple of days. Shortly after the sale I went on to MPB website and looked for my equipment and found that they gave me about 65% of what the were asking on their website. I can live with that.

I have bought from MPB and they are my #1 dealer for used gear. I talked with a guy who sent in a lens which he figured was a specific condition, he got an email from MPB and they upgraded his lens from what he thought it would be worth.

I've used both and have had no issues with either. Prices are similar but I prefer the MBP process.

MPB (not MBP) is a fine company. They've given me more than others have offered. They trade also.

List a full description and photos here before you go to a third party. Bet there are photogs here who may be interested. Lots of stuff changes hands on UHH.
