Why promote a "deal" like this from a questionable eBay reseller, when most reputable retailers routinely sell it for less?  Very strange...

Most reputable retailers are selling it for $2300 right now, and ~10% off seems to be a reasonable 'deal'.

Let me guess... you actually work for "BigValueInc."?

A better deal is a Canon refurb for $1839.20, IMMHO of course. You know you have a one year Canon USA warranty, and they come in really in "as new" condition.

I might buy a flash or another accessory from BVI, but given their feedback at eBay regarding actual warranties and the origin of their products, I'd be hesitant to buy anything with many moving parts. 98.2% positive is a horrible rating at eBay.
