    I'd like to welcome mpb.com as a supporting vendor here at Mu-43.com.

    mpb.com is a site where offers photographers and filmmakers can buy and sell used photo and video gear. They are available within the US, Canada, and all of the EU, and they offer a six month warranty on all used gear sales.

    This is a thread where mpb.com can occasionally post sales and other promotions. I'm confident that they will be a good resource for our members and thank them for their support!

    Might want to suggest they double-check that the listings match the photos... :hmmm:

    Like other companies, I'm sure they will make mistakes at times. Good that they had clear photos of what is being sold!

    They have a good reputation and are contributing quite a bit to help keep the site running well for all the members. I hope everyone here will join me in treating them accordingly.

    It's the best used camera gear company I've ever used. They actually post pictures of the used items, unlike keh and bh.

    That will be to everyone's benefit. If they are as good as can be hoped,then the more people that know about them, the more used stock they can get....which will give you more selection! :D

    @mpb@mpb - are these deals already available on your site, or are they mu-43.com specific?

    And will you be posting any UK store deals? There's a fair few uk-based members on this site.

    Not sure if this is appropriate, but I'll roll the dice...

    Clare, can you talk about how you establish pricing? For example, do you look at the Olympus Outlet (refurbs) as a comparison, keh, ebay or others? You certainly deserve a premium vs typical used gear, as you are providing a warranty and transactional security. Just curious about your philosophy.

    Thanks.

    Hi, we tend to check our pricing against most other used retailers to ensure that we are competitively priced.
    We pride ourselves on being market leaders when it comes to our pricing and also have a 16 point checking system :)

    As far as I know, they don't have deals specific to mu-43.com specific currently. Clare can correct me if I am mistaken.

    Any way you can make your search more useful? The available ways to filter things is almost useless. One thing the KEH site has over yours is the way you can search for specific things so easily.

    Currently these are our general deals rather than specifically for MU-43, but watch this space :)

    I like the way the search works, but I also don't mind browsing everything available in a certain category. I prefer it much better than checking a bunch of boxes on the left and constant reloading.
