Bought a EF-S 10-22 and later a 5DII, and was happy with both purchases. Now with a one year warranty, going refurbished is a no-brainer.

I literally just upgraded to a 580 ex ii... so while I may be tempted... it isn't going to happen.
having the ability to get basically a 21- 900mm focal length (unless my math is wrong) with incredible IQ sounds awesome. Discuss
Hi, just wondering how you got to 900, my maths makes it 640mm.
400mm x 1.6 crop on 7D2 = 640. Did I miss something?
After getting the recent $299 kit on sale (22mm) I wanted to fill out the rest of the system. I love the camera by the way, perfect complement to my DSLR. Not as good as, but about as small as my S100 (minus lens) and with far greater capability. My S100 still has a place too by the way.
Anyhow so I got the zoom for the $153 (white box) from BigValueInc which I think is a great price, the adaptor from another eBay reseller for $85 (grey box) and ordered the wide angle zoom from Canada (pending). For the quality of what you get, and the EOS M sale (selling it at cost as far as I can tell) this is well worth it.
I consider it as doubling the capabilities of my existing DSLR kit for not a lot of money. My fisheye zoom doesn't get a lot of time on the DSLR but it's getting a lot of stick time on the M as I've always preferred crop sensors for zooms.
Notice they say "due to current market conditions". This can mean a lot of things, but to a large company like Canon just having an item out for support and sales means it costs money - a lot of it. The service centers have to be trained and keep parts inventory - just for starters. This costs $$.
My guess is they see NA sales low enough that it's not worth supporting, they mostly just sold them to the Photo sites and rental places. Perhaps this is why they dumped stocks in NA.
Now with the however many new EOS-M's running in the wild in NA it might be a different story - in a year! Big companies run slowly.
