Default One more place to consider

My E-3/14-54 combo came from Cameta camera. They do business from E-bay and have a good reputation. They don't do "used" to my knowledge, but do do alot of "refurb" stuff that you may consider.

Cameta has used gear on their web site at http://www.cameta.com (but, I don't see much of it in their Ebay listings). I've bought refurbished lenses from them before (for example, I bought my Minolta 28mm f/2 AF lens in factory refurbished condition from them) and they have a very good reputation.

Just my 2 cents - have bought several used lenses at KEH that were at their next to lowest rating ("bargain") and they have all been in excellent condition!

Same here. I've bought used gear from keh.com in bargain condition (including a camera body in Bargain Condition, more than one lens in Bargain condition and a flash in Bargain condition), that I suspect some other vendors may have graded as being in Excellent condition. For example, my Minolta 35-70mm f/4 Macro AF lens, as well as my Tamron SP 35-105mm f/2.8 AF lens were both purchased in Bargain condition from keh.com, and they look and work just fine on my Maxxum 5D and Sony A700.

Thanks mole & Jim. KEH has an excellent condition 50mm f/2 macro for $349. And it comes with everything. They have a LN 50-200mm for a reasonable price too. Now, what have you guys done to me...
