A: We will rate your equipment condition as "Like New", "Excellent", "Good", "Fair", or "As Is". We do not accept broken or non-working equipment. We do not factor in shutter actuations in our offer. Please view our Terms & Conditions for more details on what each condition grade entails.

Grade Scale for Used Equipment

Like New: Equipment rated as "Like New" will show no signs of prior use. These items are considered to be anywhere from 95-100% of their original condition. Items in "Like New" condition will not have any wear, scratches, be free of dust and/or haze, and will come with the original accessories.

Excellent: Equipment rated as "Excellent" will show almost no signs of prior use. These items are considered to be anywhere from 90-95% of their original condition. Camera bodies will have only the most minor/small marks on the LCD that will not impact viewing ability at any brightness level. Camera bodies only show minor signs of use with no fatigue on the rubber grips. There may be very minor markings on the bottom of the camera from being mounted on a tripod. Lenses rated as "Excellent" have practically no wear on the housing and the glass elements are in pristine condition with no dust, scratches, or markings. The lens (mount) itself will show almost no signs of being attached to a camera.

Good: Equipment rated as being in "Good" condition will have a small amount of cosmetic wear and some blemishes from regular use. Equipment rated as "Good" will be anywhere from 80-90% of it's original condition. Cameras may have small scratches on the LCD, some marking on the bottom of the body, and/or minor wear on the rubber grips. Lenses may have slight scratches on the housing, but the glass elements are unmarked and very clean. Zoom and focus rings may show minor signs of fatigue and/or oxidation.

Fair: Equipment rated as "Fair" will show cosmetic wear and marks from being used. "Fair" equipment is considered to be in 70-80% of the condition it came in originally. However the equipment is still in full good working order. Cameras may have dents, dings, and/or scratches. Rubber grips may show heavy signs of use and/or reattachment. Lenses in "Fair" condition may have cosmetic wear on the lens housing. Glass elements may have cleaning marks, small scratches, or dust, but not enough to impact image quality. Zoom and focusing rings on lenses rated as "Fair" will have signs of use and/or oxidation.

As Is: Equipment rated as "As Is" may or may not be in a working condition. Items in "As Is" condition may have dents, scratches, cracks, and/or may need repair. These items are sold without a 90 day warranty, and are non returnable. If there are any questions pertaining to a specific item, please call (973-377-2007).
