I've read the various threads about sticking with B&H, Adorama, etc., for large purchases and avoiding the risks on ebay. Usually, I do purchase from B&H and have been since the 90s. However, PMI digital is an authorized Cannon dealer/retailer and noticed a few things on their recent ads and would like your thoughts:
1. Some ebay ads say they are a Canon dealer, others ads say they are a Canon RESELLER. For warranty purposes, I would stick to ads that only say they are a Canon dealer.
2. The ads I would stick to also specifically include all that is supposed to come with the box and say that they include a "Canon 1 Year Parts and Labor USA Warranty."
3. They have a 30-day return policy and they have 100% buyer feedback.
So if I purchase from them in this way, what is my risk? As long as I can input the serial number online at CanonUSA, I should be ok, correct?
Thanks for your input.
