    Hello Fuji friends!

    I just purchased X-T2 and a 10-24mm from KEH and was hoping some of you might share your recent experiences with KEH buying/selling?

    I’m super excited to have this gear on the way- fingers crossed!

    Thank you
    Otohp.

    I've bought a couple of lenses and a camera from them and had no problems. The gear was in excellent condition. I've also sold gear to them and never had an issue there either. They seemed pretty fair in their estimates.

    KEH is top-notch. They can't be beat for quality and for honesty and accuracy in their ratings. I have purchased a lot of lenses, several cameras, and a range of accessories from KEH, and have never been disappointed. One thing to keep in mind, their ratings are primarily about condition, and everything from "Bargain" on up probably works as it should. What distinguishes the "excellent" ratings is excellent condition.

    Me too. (re above comments). Sold some old Nikon equipment at one of KEH's local buying events. Easy and fair. Have also purchased 2 lenses and both were fine.

    I've bought around 7 lenses from them. Even the stuff marked "bargain" is great. As far as selling or trade ins, I only sent them a few things one time. They offered me less than I was looking for, so I had them send it back. No harm, no foul - I appreciate them not budging on their quality standards

    +1 on KEH being an excellent camera shop. I've been selling and buying with them for, er, probably 30 years.

    Buying: even their "bargain grade" gear is in terrific shape.

    Selling: in my experience they offer better prices than the big NYC dealers.

    Agree with all the positive statements. My first choice for buying used gear, except possibly for this forum classified.

    You can also get an additional discount on KEH right now using promo code BMSM01A - $25 off on orders over $250 and $50 off on orders over $400. The code was working as recently as 5 mins ago :cool:

    Only had one issue with a purchase from them, they were VERY quick to get me info to send it back, and very quick to refund. Most things I've purchased have been great though. Overall all I think they are A+.

    Thanks again everyone for sharing your experiences and opinions!

    My gear arrived- so far everything seems copacetic.

    Excited to get the 10-24 out for some specific work so I can be sure.

    The X-T2 and it’s charger etc. came in just lock bags. No box and no manual. But it does appear to be near new.
    Seems snappy and good to go.

    The 10-24 came in box with no manual. Also looks exc + as described. Need to get this one outside for some landscape work to be certain.

    Fun stuff :)
