A local camera store had a KEH buyer in town looking for used equipment. I had an extra Yashica Mat that I wanted to move out of my collection. I must say the experience was very positive. I received very fair compensation for the camera which I can now use to fund my most recent purchase of a Ricoh Diacord. I have purchased cameras from KEH in the past and I think that they are very honest in their portrayal of what they are selling and have a very good return policy. This was so much more painless than selling on Flea Bay. I wish this was an everyday option.
Good service is hard to beat. Another forum had a member complaining bitterly about KEH. Sometimes one employee of a company can give it a bad reputation.
A Ricoh Diacord eh? Nice! If it has the Seikosha MXL shutter it is actually a Richoflex Diamond L and was probably made in 1957. Perfect for my collection. if it has the Citizen-MXV shutter its just a 1958 Diamond G of no interest to me...
I have a Ricohflex Dia whose Rikenon lens is claimed to be only a 3 element design. It is an outstanding performer regardless. The one I just bought is a Ricoh Diacord model G with a 4 element taking lens. It has the Citizen MV shutter. They may not be collectible but I really like TLR's and for the money I think they hold their own against the Autocords and Rolleicords performance wise. My Ricohflex is the camera I shoot the most. In the states the Dia's and Diacord's are not very common in good, clean condition.
