Best place online to buy lenses

Discussion in 'Photography' started by Tentacle Pr0n, Jan 25, 2004.

  1. I dont want to pay the full price at my local shop but I want good price but
    more importantly a good retailer that is not "grey market". US retailer is
    a must.

    Can anyone help me find a couple good ones?

    Thanks

    I have been very happy with their prices and service. Knowledgeable
    counter help there as well.

    Although I have not purchased from them online, I did drive the hour or
    so there to buy my 70-200 f/2.8L IS. The savings compared to the local
    shops made the effort well worth it.

    If you are looking for good quality used lenses, try:

    www.keh.com

    I've bought a number of lenses from them, all in great condition.

    and there grading is great. The lenses are usually better than graded

    I've bought several lenses from them and from Adorama. They may
    grade better, but OTOH they charge more. That is, an "excellent" as
    graded by KEH generally costs more than an "excellent" graded by
    Adorama. But I've bought several from both, more from KEH (better
    website, larger selection)
