Is a "price drop" based on Canon's distribution chain, or does it reflect market place values?
I just picked up a refurbished 60D from Canon for under $700 USD (out the door). They kicked off a 20% sale on refurb items. This was THE cheapest price I could find on a used unit from a source I trust. It has the latest firmware update installed and the shutter actuation was set to 1 (one)... I guess they test fired it.
I could find this camera new for about the same price, but from not so reputable/trusted sources. I'm sure many of you know this already, but I, for one, am happy with the Canon store, it's pricing, and delivery time (less than a week).
