It's depended. Last Friday I saw the 35L list for $1,183, then plus S&H and taxes, it's almost $1,300 when I can get new one from B&H for $1,245 or something with free S&H.


When you buy things from the net, you're supposed to pay tax to your state. So for me, I'd have to spend 1245 to BH, then add 6% sales tax that I'd pay to the state. So it's a bit closer in price, but still, when it's that close, new over refurb anyday.

Holy moly. How have I not known about the refurb store all this time!?!? There are some INSANE deals on there.

Thumbs up to Canon for being willing to sell this stuff at these prices. If I ever need something in the future I'll look there first now.

Still bummed I paid almost $1400 for my used 35L a couple months ago , that one bugs me, but at least it works great

It looks like the 35 L and 85 f1.8 are back in stock, sale still going.... I just got my tracking number for a 5D II and 17-40 L. I have been wanting a second 5D II body, so this was too good to pass up.

What exactly is "refurb". Has it been previously owned, for example.

Cheers

a refurb can be a store demo, previously owned camera that was returned to a store for some reason, or new inventory that was sent back to canon.

all refurb's are suppose to have been gone thru w/ a fine tooth comb at canon before being resold.

they come in a white box w/ out a warranty card.

most come with a 90 day manufacturer warranty, but adorama extends that warranty (through them) for one year.

I wanted the 85L for $1495 but I was too late.

A friend of mine bought the 5DII and 24-70. He did that at 1am in the morning.

is there anything to distinguish a refurbished lens from non-refurb?

does the date code change after the inspection from canon?

does it come with everything a "new" one usually does, besides warranty card?
When I upgrade lens, will I have trouble selling it as refurb?

thanks for help....looking at the 70-200 f2.8....$985....what a deal

w/ a refurb you do not get the original canon box for that particular refurb item or the blank warranty card.

there is a small gold sticker that says refurb, but that can be peeled off.

i doubt the date code changes, date codes are really overrated anyhow. the date code and serial number could change, but i am not sure how one could really know unless they work on the inside for canon.

it comes w/ everything that a new one comes w/ except for original box and blank warranty card.

you may have trouble selling your refurb'd lens or any lens, depending on how much you are asking for the lens vs. potential buyers wants, needs, understandings, misunderstandings.

i look at refurbs as used lenses w/ a 90 day warranty (adorama offers a 1 year deal thru them, but i would almost bet my left nut it isn't so easy to deal w/)....if it's damaged or crazy worn or doesn't work properly i can understand not being happy w/ the purchase. but people buy these cameras and they may have a few thousand shutter clicks and they cry. big deal. go buy a point and shoot and sit on the internet all day and talk about all the gear you are going to own. on the flipside some may have less than 10 shutter clicks..these folks feel like they hit the jackpot.

remember some of these lenses are in almost like new condition. i have several lenses and bodies that are refurbs and they do look like new gear when i've opened the box. i also had one body where the focus screen tab was broken right out of the box...canon replaced it very quickly.

Not at all! If you need to return a Canon refurb under warranty to Adorama, we'll simply send you out another one!

Any problems (with this or anything else relating to Adorama) and you can email me directly: Helen@adorama,com
