All Canon USA refurbished gear comes with a full 1-year Canon USA warranty.
Buying brand new from BH with no sales tax and free shipping is $120 more. (but it's not in stock)
What a discount!
I also wonder about the wisdom of buying refurbished gear, particularly camera bodies. A body could get returned due to an intermittent fault that may be missed during refurbishment, and may recur after resale.
The instant I placed my order, it showed backordered; when it came back into stock I waited a couple of weeks for it to ship and then had to call. Apparently when this happens, they literally box the camera up for shipment then forget about it; because the system tells them to box it but doesn't tell them where to ship it to. The lady I spoke with had to do something on her computer to get it "unstuck" and shipped. You might want to make that call and wait, if you have to.
I am beyond stoked!
