    Not exactly a deal, but there's lots of used mu43 stuff at KEH right now. Some bodies, lots of adaptable four thirds lenses (that will AF, albeit badly) and a lot of random accessories, like chargers, batteries, hoods, etc. May be good deals for some.

    keh.com is an online company that sells used equipment. Their ratings are very conservative and I find even their bargain grade stuff to be excellent. You can waste a lot of time on that site.

    Yeah anything above very good there is usually pretty much mint to most people. The BGN stuff tends to have one clear flaw that may or may not affect image quality, usually something to do with the glass - generally the BGN turn out to be just that though, a bargain!

    Conservative but very expensive.

    So I went to KEH and it showed a "Mirrorless Digital" category, but there were no Oly or Lumix stuff there, just Sony, Pentax, Fuji, Samsung and Nikon 1. I didn't think any of these were Mu43.

    Yes, for some reason they are listed under the main DSLR subset

    I see. I checked it out again per your recommendation and while I found some bodies, it seemed like looking for lenses, was like looking for a needle in a haystack.

    Thanks for the tip regardless.

    Their selection is not as good as it used to be. Perhaps more people are buying used to save a few bucks.

    In the past I've purchased lots of Nikon lenses and most were BGN grade. I will say that they do not look at shutter counts on the bodies they sell.

    KEH's pricing is highly variable. I got some TREMENDOUS deals there I couldn't touch on eBay, and other times looked at their prices and wondered what the heck they were thinking.

    That said, everything I've bought there has been very good. I still check them regularly.

    Occasionally they have price reductions combined with free shipping and it's often hard to beat them then.

    I find KEH really very good. As mentioned, there ratings are conservative. I've bought a couple of bodies and several lenses there through the years, and all have been better than the rating led one to anticipate.
