Anyone use MPB?

I learned about them from another forum and had the opportunity to buy a Panasonic 12-32. The purchase made sense because they agreed to buy an old lens I wasn't using, so the price difference was such that it was worthwhile.

The only odd thing was that to complete the transaction, I had to call in my credit card, there was no online facility to finalize the transaction. Other then that, it seemed fine

@maflynn MPB are good. I've sold to them a couple of times and they have stuck to what they said about grading etc. I would have no hesitation buying from them.

For buying, please also consider ffordes, they are very reputable and have stock coming and going every day. http://www.ffordes.co.uk

I would also add in Harrison's in sheffield I traded in some gear and they offered me some of the best prices around. The are also quite reasonable priced to buy from!

I'm in the US :)

I've bought [used lenses] and sold lenses before using my local camera company (Hunts Photo), though this time, I opted for MPB because they had the lens I was interested in getting. The inventory of used M43 lenses at Hunts is not that great on any given day.
