A few must have tests to make sure the camera is worthy of purchase...
#1, set the camera next to the oven with a frying pan and put an egg in it. Set the cameras Mode to scramble... Wait 2 minutes... See if the eggs is indeed scrambled. If it's over easy or poached, return immediately. Also you may want to test the coffee brewer function. That will be crucial.
#2, set the camera on a tripod facing a blank white wall. set the camera on AWB and think of the color yellow. fire a shot. If the picture is anything but yellow, return it as the mind control function obviously isn't working which will lead to other problems down the road.
#3, lastly, go by a busy street where cars are traveliing at a decent speed. Stand on the sidewalk but be near the road so the cars are whizzing past you. Set the camera on ai servo and high speed continous shooting. focus on a car 50 yards out coming towards you and rapid fire... If when zoomed in after reviewing the photos, you cannot see eyelashes on the driver in each consecutive frame, send it back because obviously the AF is faulty.
Now on a serious note, shoot pictures of the sky.... look for hot pixels, play with AF in varying areas and see how well it locks on... read the manual over and over and once more just for good measure. The menu system has had an overhaul so locating things may be in different areas and harder to find so take your time and understand it and all the nuances. Lastly look for any signs of hidden damage such as paint chips, scratches in the LCD's, etc... easy to get if they aren't careful with the camera and could lower your asking price.
