Re: Actuations

That's exactly my experience with MPB. I've used them a few times and they're a bit sloppy. Sometimes there's the odd thing missing and even on occasions the odd thing added! I've always found their after sales to be very good though and any issues have been quickly sorted out.

I've never had the slightest issue with Wex selling or buying, while both items I most recently bought s/h from MPB were not exactly as described (both missing and extra bits in the boxes, although nothing major) and both were on the grubby side externally - they obviously don't clean their kit at all. Wex's have always been immaculate. One time, MPB sent me a Panasonic GH3 body instead of the 15mm lens I'd ordered??? Soon sorted, but still...

I'm sure both are reputable and I'm sure you'd be fine buying from either if anything went wrong.
