Re: Used eBay lens or new?

i have bought about 20 used lenses on ebay.  3 were not really as good as they should have been. So my philosophy is i spend no more on ebay than i am willing to throw away in money.

Everything I have bought from KEH has been good but i do choose the better graded items.  by which i mean i don’t buy the ones graded fair ugly or parts-only unless i really am only buying it to be a paper-weight for decorative purposes.
