    it be recommended to get 2nd hand camera body, or lens.

    there are many makes and models of cameras and lenses that the only
    way you'll get then is used, unless you just happen to luck up and
    find some hole in the wall camera shop that still had an old model new
    in the box, but don't hold your breath on that one.

    yes, it's "safe" to buy used equipment from reputable shops. try
    www.keh.com for online buying. I've bought several pieces of
    equipment from them and have had no unpleasant experiences. I even
    got one lens and hood that were still "like new" in the box for a
    reasonable price. If anyone had ever taken the equipment out of the
    box, you could not tell it. the other pieces I've gotten from them
    that were obviously used showed little sign of wear and functioned
    perfectly. i hear that Adorama and B&H Photo also have high standards
    for their used equipment.
