Got one yesterday. Saw it, then a couple hours later went to buy it...sold out. Sad face. Kept checking back and about 5 hours later more were available.
I think a lot of overproduction gets labeled refurb...

Took advantage of this deal this morning. I was waiting for it to hit the CLP but this 20% off is probably a better deal than i would have even gotten there.

Even less than the ad from overstockdigital.com that appears on this page when I looked a minute ago.  Gotta laugh at their kits - they are pairing EF-S lenses with the 6D.  ;)

Just got notification that mine already shipped.  :D ;D

Having CPW notification is not helping with this "disease".  Just got my 100L not too long ago and currently watching a lot of other glass while the rebates are on and stores doing double dip promos.

pretty clearly speculation and not claim, but maybe you were just looking to make a post in this thread...

Mine has shipped as well.

Why would anyone make a post in a thread just for the sake of making a post in that thread?   ;)

These refurbished deals became much better after they lengthened the warranty to 1 year. Now there's almost no downside.

$1,215 for a full frame, it can't get much better than this.

I can think of 1,214 things that are better.

Heard too many horror stories about the autofocus to bite on this one as a 2nd body.

Also, I would not be surprised if this camera goes for $1250 new around black Friday, there is a lot of competition in this pricerange now.

To continue with idle speculation, this sale must be generating a lot of purchases. How could there be that many returns to provide merchandise to support it? If you had a slow selling camera with inventory steadily building, and didn't want to weaken your product line price structure to compensate, would "refurb" be a back door outlet?
Anecdotally, my UPS guy came in today, and I mentioned this deal, and he whipped out his phone and bought one on the spot.

A lot? Well, realistically there's just the Nikon d600/d610 which is of course the better overall camera, but Canon knows from experience that 100-200€ won't make people jump ship - and those who want a ff and don't care about af will pay some $$$ more than the 70d w/o a second thought.

Imho the current price will be there for a while (that's why I recently bought it) ... in Germany, the 6d price has recently even gone *up* a little. I fully expect the 6d's price to drop even further eventually because that's what Canon designed it for, but from now on in a much more moderate speed, special offers excluded.
