I've never seen this offer in the UK..  do Canon UK just not sell refurb?

Canon's "online store" here in the UK appears to be SO pointless, with its higher-than-retail prices and failure to stock or even acknowledge their own new products, that it leads me to believe they DO have a purpose: to half-heatedly direct people towards their comparatively-well-priced business associates such as Jessops...

I'm pretty sure there won't be any refurbs listed on the official Canon UK website but they DO have one or two eBay accounts where you'll occasionally see Powershots, printers and an elusive 70D or 1200D mildly discounted! :)
5D3 // EOS M2 & SL1 // Sigma 24/1.8 & 50/1.4 // Canon EF 400/5.6L & 100/2 // Tamron 17-35/2.8-4 // SONY HDR FX1000  // Zoom H1 // Paints, Pens & Pencils!... USA Strat, Mexican Tele, Warwick Thumb 5 ;)

I've purchased a few Canon refurb products now - an SL1 with 18-55 kit and a 55-250 STM for my girlfriend, and a 100-400 II a few weeks ago. In each case, there was no sign that the items weren't brand new; just didn't come with the standard boxes. The 100-400 went on sale less than a week after I bought it, I contacted Canon and they said they will refund me the difference. Ended up $600 less than list price. Performs well, much sharper than my other telephoto lenses.

It also means unchecked items that need to either be sent back immediately, potentially broken right out of the box.


My personal canon refurb misdventures, take from it what you will:

2x 50mm 1.4 - broken focus

6D- focus always been suspect even after CPS repair. Sits on the shelf, cant trust it for shoots.

70d with COMPLETELY BROKEN focus out of the box, in every mode. So upset, I nearly went nuclear on a canon sales rep. Nearly.

35mm IS F2 (2 months ago) - busted circuit board + scratch on the front element-  sent back for repair, but they never fixed the front element. Operations is STELLAR now, literally completely different beast then what was originally shipped. Will still go back in to get that front element repaired.

Well that's my story.

No more refurbs for me, unless its a flash.


Be the best you, screw everything else.

I've purchased NUMEROUS refurbished lenses, a few T3i bodies, a 6D body and a 5D Mark III body. All were in like-new condition. The T3i bodies had less than 50 shutter actuations, and the 5D was somewhere in the 2000 range (software verified, not reading memory card figures). The fact that the products come with same 1 year warranty as new, it's a real bargain!
