I finally jumped on it the other day when it was $1215. Mine arrives tomorrow. Although everyone has said over and over it's not a sports or wildlife camera, I ordered it with the 100-400 lens and plan to put some extensive work in to exactly those two areas. Hopefully I don't venture too far into the land of the "I told you so's...".
Temptation got the better of me on the last day of the sale and I was able to get one of the last ones at $1215. I shoot mainly landscape and portrait, and the opportunity to move from a 60D up to full frame was just too irresistible. The camera arrived yesterday, and the first thing I did was check the shutter count, which was 309. Not complaining - I actually expected it to be higher and was pleased that it wasn't. Just posting this as a point of information for others who might be contemplating buying refurbished from Canon direct. It would be interesting to see other data from refurb buyers in terms of shutter count. I haven't had much chance to shoot with it yet, but the difference in IQ and high ISO performance was immediately obvious, and I am very pleased.
