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?
