Has anyone dealt with them, either for purchase or to sell them gear? I have not yet had any dealings with them, but they seem to have a lot of offbeat and attractive things and I may want to sell them a few items.

I was just there yesterday! They seem reputable -- A typical old-time Photo District camera store.

Good place, very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Like most of used camera dealers paying Manhattan rent, they aren't cheap, but they are reliable.

Where are they located? I might drop by if I ever go to NYC again.

Definitely worth a visit, and if you need something unusual, like Graflex-type filmholders or bag mags or a reduction back for a view camera, it's worth asking. I was looking for some masks last week for my Linhof zoom finder, for instance, and they didn't have the ones I wanted, but they did have a bag of about a dozen or more assorted Linhof zoom finder masks. 33 W. 17th St. Info at lensandrepro.com.

There is an empty storefront at 33 West; and then tot he right, where you think 31 would be, is the entrance to the elevator lobby.

They have a funky side-load elevator(!); and it's as slow as s**t -- Use the stairs to the 5th floor if you can

Back in the day they were the guys in NYC. I have been shooting since 1977 and I will never forget having to place an order for the studio that I just became an assistant at. They gave me such a "who are you attitude". They were quite snobby for many years. I suspect their tude has changed by now. Their process were always a bit high but their used stuff was in great shape.
I think 2 guys named Jeff owned the place.

Good luck with them.

They have lots of great stuff but if you visit be ready to tell them what you're looking for -- it really isn't set up for browsing and they won't let you just wander around. Which is a pity, because if you know exactly what you'll want then you might as well search online for a while rather than calling them as your last resort because their prices are twice the market for a lot of their stuff. Glennview in Chicago is the same way -- they don't suffer fools.
