Anyone have experience? They have the lens I want for a good price and "D" condition which states "Little or no signs of wear" .

I'll let you know tomorrow when I receive my E grade lens. I think that category lists it as having some wear on it so I'm hoping it's not too bad. We'll see.

I have bought used from Adorama and everything has been up to expectations.
I have no hesitation doing it again.

I picked up a 180mm Macro from them a while back. I believe it was a D. If they hadn't said it was used I wouldn't have been able to tell otherwise.

I have an E+ rated lens from them. It came extremely well packaged and was perfect condition. If it had a box, it could have passed for new.

Only thing is keep in mind their economy shipping is s l o w.... took me a full week to get the lens. not knocking them (this time frame was clearly indicated when I picked that option), but be aware of this if you are used to shoprunner or amazon prime, so be prepared to wait or pick a faster speed.

Thanks to all for the +tive f/back which is very much appreciated.

Don't forget that we are so confident aboiut the quality of any used camera or lens rated D, E+, E, E- or V that we give you a 6-month warranty, which includes a 30-day returns period.

re: the shipping; yes, 7-10 business days is..... 7-10 business days! But as you have noted, it does state at checkout that is how long it will take if you select free shipping. As a family-owned business we aren't a behemoth like Amazon and have to cut our cloth accordingly!

I've purchased a lot of used lenses from Adorama and they have all been better than expected. And unlike another dealer of used gear they come with front and rear caps.
