Has anyone purchased one of the Grey Market bodies from one of the eBay dealers. I wanted to know what the experience was like. The no warranty is not as big a factor as making sure all OEM parts are what is included. If I was to purchase a used 1DX I wouldn't have a warranty anyway. Thanks.
I bought my 2nd 1Dx for a steal on eBay for $4199 (grey market) a few months ago. I got a call from the vendor (AllNewShop or GetItDigital, I can't remember...) to confirm my ship address but they did not try at all to upsell me on anything.
Arrived 2nd day Air without a fuss. Ran a shutter count app through the USB and it rang up 0. Couldn't be happier with getting a new backup that costs less for a used copy w/o warranty. Loaded with latest firmware and serial # confirms the mirror fix.
Everything came in the box less the paper manual and any Canon warranty card to speak of (obviously). Only three language options however which I thought was weird (English, Chinese and Japanese) since my other 1Dx has so many more despite having the same firmware.
Very satisfied with my purchase.
