I have bought lenses considered "bargain" price at Keh, and the equipement probably would be considered excellent at most other places. As far as "used" I might would look at Keh first

Shhhhh... You'll give away all of the secrets. :-) ;-)

Actually, you may want to look under the used cameras there, too (even if you're only lens shopping). I've seen cases where it was less expensive to buy a used camera with a lens (under 35mm "camera outfits"), versus the identical model lens by itself there in used condition (depending on the lens you're looking for).

For example, you may see a Nikon n4004s with a 35-70mm f/2.8, at a lower price compared to just a used 35-70mm f/2.8 by itself.

But, when I looked a couple of days ago, I didn't see any of these types of bargains (so they may be getting smarter at marketing used gear). Or, perhaps I'm talking too much about the bargains and they're being grabbed up. ;-)

IMO, it's definitely a good place to keep an eye on for used gear (checking both the camera outfits and lenses sections, even if you're only lens shopping).
