So ....... I caught all kind of hell around here for posting that I had ordered this 12mm f/2 Olympus lens for an upcoming trip -- a BGN specimen, priced accordingly(!), at KEH.

Actually, that is not what you did. You posted a REVIEW of the lens that you didn't even have.   And gave it 5 stars.

For my purposes, the pricing (less than half of a new lens) made this possible, altogether. My purchase arrived today. After close inspection, have decided its a very thin line between BGN and nearly new.

I have never ordered anything from KEH, but it is good to know that their BGN rating does not mean beat to hell. Thanks for the info.

Very pleased with first test shots. Shooting in afternoon light, at ~~~ f/5 to f/6.3, size and weight being factored in, color, contrast, and clarity of the images work for me. It's a good addition to my bag. I expect it'll see lots of use.
