    I was wondering if anyone here has ordered used from Adorama and has a clue on how good there grading system is?

    There's a lens I would like to purchase but it's in "V - Very Good" Condition and don't quite know HOW good that is..

    I know some people say BGN from KEH is very nice condition, and didn't know if Adorama had strict requirements too before I made the plunge.

    Call them up... They are pretty good about describing the item over the phone.

    I've delt with Adorama a lot and am very happy with them. Have bought some used stuff from them including lenses and the equipment met my expectations.

    I just got a "very good" lens. Works like a charm.

    "Very good" should probably be self-explanatory, if you aren't satisfied see if you can get your money back.

    But I'm sure it's in really nice shape.

    N = New Comes complete as packed by manufacturer with warranty except where noted.
    D = Demo Demonstration condition almost like new, might show very light use.
    E+=Excellent +
    Very clean
    E = Excellent
    Shows normal wear, might have minor scratches, glass clean.
    E - = Excellent - Average wear, may have small marks but no brassing
    V = Very Good Shows heavier wear, works mechanically fine
    G = Good Shows extra heavy use wear, glass might have scratches, usable
    F = Fair
    Beaten up, sold as is

    Straight from adorama, pretty straight forward. Sounds like V = "Definitly used and you can tell it, but works fine"
