    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!

    Also Clifton are very good

    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.
