Just wondering how do KEH rates the lens that they are selling as used.

Rated as BGN - 70-79% of its original condition.

I'm having a hard time to visualize it so maybe you guys can help me out with this ratings and if the lens are still acceptable....

Thanks

KEH is very conservative, EX always looks like new w/o box to me, and I have gotten freebies that they didn't list such as caps and carrying pouch free. BGN is their lowest grade, but Jim C has gotten some winners in that class. Expect some scratches, rub marks, etc. in BGN, but a mechanically good item.

KEH is selling a 50 1.4 orig at BGN condition @ $189 will it be worth it???

I have the 1.4, purchased used in 1994. For the money, I would get the 1.7 (less than $100). It foucses twice as fast, and I doubt you will notice the lens speed difference.
