I have an order for a refurbished 28-70 that is from 11/16/2020 (just turned a year old). Last Canon told me was they didn't expect the order to every be fulfilled. I doubt I will order anything from Canon's website in the future.

Refurbs are hard to preorder because availability is unpredictable. I found a new 28-70/2 in stock last week and ordered it, it will be delivered today.

I didn't even know you could preorder or even place an order for an out-of-stock refurbished item. @neuroanatomist, I'm guessing you do like I do, which is set an alert through Canon Price Watch and then just hope I don't miss the message. Canon does seem to have a habit of replenishing their refurbished stock at odd hours, like late at night or in the early morning hours.

Generally, I haven't been that impressed with refurbished prices unless Canon runs an extra 10-15% off sale, which pretty much stopped with COVID shortages. With the B&H sales tax rebate, the price for new is pretty close if you live in a high sales tax state like I do. I did score a refurbished 70-200 RF 2.8 in late summer, and am glad I did since it came just a few weeks before Canon raised their prices.

I haven’t ever bought refurbished. I do use CPW alerts sometimes, but in this case I found the 28-70/2 on my own.
