View Full Version : Thoughts on Used Lenses?

01-08-2006, 04:59 PM
Has anyone purchased a used lens from either B&H Photo or Adorama Photo?

A lens I am interested is listed on Adorama in "V" condition, which they list as having heavier signs of wear, but works mechanically fine with no scratches on the lens.

I have no problems with the lens not looking brand new if the lens is still capable of taking good pictures. Any thoughts or personal experiences?

A good way for me to save some money so that I can get a head start on saving for some really nice glass. Thanks! --K

My 70-300 Nikkor was used from a local camera shop. No complaints here. I actually plan to go back to them to look at what they have. They are going to pay me $40 for my 18-55 D50 kit lens. I'll shop around for something else used while I am there.
