Has anyone heard of or dealt with mpb.com for selling used equipment? They gave me a quote of 540 for a used Canon 70-200 f/4 L IS lens.

Never heard of them, but looked up their site. Their selling prices are close to what people are selling stuff on Fredmiranda for, so it seems like you could get a better price selling there....or here! They are selling this lens for $794. I see 2 on on fredmiranda for $650 and $900 (maybe too high).

They are relatively new but so far have a good reputation.

Have used them various times over the last five years. Always been pleased. Buy or Sell. Being UK based, Fred Miranda as mentioned may be a logical option.
Make your life spectacular!

It says on the MPB website that they have offices in New York which should eliminate any hassle with doing things in the UK.

I have bought a few things from Matt but never sold anything to him. I find, like all dealers, one can get a better price locally either through various forums or classifieds.

I have sold a couple of items to MBP and can not fault their service. Would certainly use them again.
