Hmmm, if it's within 2-$300 of new, I'd go new.

I've really only heard good things about the Canon refurbs.  No 1 years warranty though––I believe it is 90 day.  They're a great deal when Canon runs the 20% off refurbs.  Then the price comes about to around 1500 for the 5dii.

It links to ebay??  Ha that's a little weird.

Yeah :P

My guess is maybe they had an official store there once, but its dead. It seems to just redirect to the regular ebay site.

What was it again last Xmas, around $1900?  Most likely supply & demand, if the MK3 is alittle pricey for some then maybe the MK2 will jump a bit or hold it's own.

With so many of the new 5D mark III's possibly being returned for various reasons, I'd likely jump on a refurb if the price was right.

I mean sure...resell might not be great, but I'm not buying this with the idea of ever reselling it again, you know?

I figure at worst, I might buy an extened warranty on a refurb, like from Square Deal or whatever their name is....

But I've often bough referbs on things...and I usually feel it would be a great product, like with apple refurbs. I figure it is basically a 'new' product, that they've taken and serviced and double checked....so likely as not, it will be better than new in some respects.

One thing I wondered...how would anyone know that you were selling a refurb?  Is it marked somewhere that it is a refurbished product?

They come with a sticker on the bottom. It peals right off. I'm not sure if they keep track of the serial numbers. When selling it though I figure it's used and no longer "refurbished". And it's irrelevant if it's out of warranty. If someone explicitly asked I would tell them, but I don't think refurbs hurt resale value onced they've been used for a year.

I could get a new one right now for just over 2 grand.  FS price matches + 10% of difference.

Yeah... Regular refurbs aren't a great deal.. But when they have a discount running it's a great deal.
