All cameras and lenses sold by MPB undergo a thorough 8-to-10-point inspection by a trained photo specialist. And every camera and lens they sell is covered by a 6-month warranty.

You always know precisely what you're buying. MPB uses an easy-to-understand 5-point Condition Rating System. The condition ratings are: • Like New - unboxed, unused or lightly used • Excellent - minimal signs of wear, otherwise pristine • Good - fair amount of use, but well-kept • Well Used - significant use, signs of normal wear and tear • Heavily Used - clear signs of wear and tear, still works.
