    I am local to them and they are great!
    I just ordered a 50 year old camera
    from them in bargain condition and other
    than the bellows being worn it looks like
    new! The price was great too!

    Go for it. KEH will take it back if you don't like it - all you lose is the
    shipping. THey are a good honest shop and my experience has been that they
    under-rate their used items.

    Matt, I don't know anything about their Minolta gear, but I've bought
    several Canon lenses and accessories from their used stock and haven't
    been disappointed yet. I should warn you not to expect much out of
    anybody's "bargain" grade. I bought a lens locally from another
    vendor here in Atlanta (not KEH) that was "bargain" grade, and there
    are droplets of oil on the aperture blades as well as the mulitcoating
    coming off the rear element of that particular lens. I've heard that
    KEH's "bargain" grade is better than some, but I haven't bought
    anything less than "excellent" quality from KEH, so I can't comment
    there.

    Yes

    No. It went bad about two months after I bought it. It's not terrible,
    either, you just have to snap the film advance (snap as in wind it up and
    let it snap back into position) after you finish a roll of film, otherwise
    it doesn't reset the film counter. If the film counter doesn't reset, good
    luck knowing where you are in the next roll you load! It most likely needs
    a good clean lube adjust and new light seals. Of course, that'll probably
    cost another $100!

    About an $85.00 repair including foam. If this is a ProS magazine it would
    be worthwhile.

    Forgive me for butting in, but yes, he does. I sent him a Pro-S back
    with bad foam seals & a loose film advance lever and a 90mm C lens
    with fungus in it. Mike gave the lens a cla, cleaned out the fungus,
    replaced the light seals in the back & fixed the advance lever, all
    for a VERY reasonable price. Everything worked fine; I'm more than
    happy with his work & prices.

    I only know Mike as a satisfied customer.
