Do these count?
Have any of you bought their used lenses? How did you feel about the price you paid? How was the lens you got with respect to the description of the shape it was in, etc?
Have you had to return one and was that a hassle? Did you get a refund or exchange?
Overall, what's the consensus of buying from them...good, bad, excellent?
I wonder if they'll have lenses other than what goes through the rental house. As in, can I sell my lenses/cameras to them like Keh.com or something similar.
After we get things settled in (new building and more staff for LensAuthority) we plan to start offering certification for people selling their own gear: we'll independently test it, give a printout of the optics, and warranty it for the seller. Or sell it for them on consignment. We'll clearly identify when an item is a consignment item, but it will be tested to our standards and warrantied if appropriate. For some more expensive lenses it will hopefully provide some assurances to the buyers and be a better deal for sellers who don't want to deal with Craigslist or eBay (or if they do, they can list our test results and warranty when they sell it.)
If you are crafty, you can unload the 24-105mm lens and the Pro-100 printer for about $850-$900 combined. That gives you a 6D body at around $1,099-$1,149 out of pocket, with a 16GB SD card to boot.
My package arrives Monday; I'll let everyone know how the resale of the printer and lens goes.
as of today there is a separate thread titled "Canon has Refurbished 5DIII for $2240": http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=12006.0
I'm assuming this isn't a troll-post, but I'm kind of surprised because the refurb thread is one that is currently active and shows up on the front page.
