    Hey guys. I finally got my Nikon 18-135mm lens. Its used and if you read the previous inputs on this page, nobody has seem to have any history of purchasing "used" items from B&H photo. So I'm the guinea pig. It came with all items that should come if you were to buy it new. The lens works great so far. No problems. The condition of the lens is excellent. Looks new. If I set the used lens next to a brand new, I cannot tell a difference. So there ya go, if anyone was planning to buy use lens from B&H, they got my vote.

    I'm a little late on this thread... but you'll love that lens! I have it and it's shot thousands of images for me. Great little lens.

    B&H is probably the best thing next to a local store.

    Bought (in person) a used 200-400VR from them. Like new. 90 day warranty, 14 day return.

    Could've paid for a longer warranty but figure on this lens I'll send to Nikon on my dime if I have problems.

    Others have noted that they were more than happy with B&H's grading and their used purchases.

    Of note, my experience with Adorama on used was not as great. More optimistic grading.
     
  8. Thanks for the collected wisdom, good to know.

    CanNOT stand Adorama, love B&H.

    I don't like Adorama at all. Had a horrible time on the phone with rude customer service reps.

    B&H is the way to go for online purchases.
