These replies are real helpful. Why would you buy SEVERAL items from grey market sellers and then declare that they are no good? Are you a glutton for punishment or just a total ignoramus? And I mean that as politely as I can state it.


Maybe a newbie trying to get in his 25 posts

Since many out of state transactions aren't taxable it is easy to likely eliminate the added cost of taxes to a 'new' sale.
There are many 'used' finds at reduced price that still have Canon warranty on high dollar purchases such as 1DX.

Both of the states I have lived in MI and CA even if you are not charged sales tax, you are usually responsible to pay a "use tax" or "personal property tax" which equals the sales tax. For a business it is good practice to pay it, for when you get audited. For a hobbiest you are still obligated pay it but many don't.
It's the law, so it's up to you to follow it.

I have bought almost every camera I've owned (7D x2, NEX C3, NEX 5N, NEX 6, a7R) grey market, and haven't had any problems. Maybe I am lucky. 1DIV I've bought second hand from local seller with local warranty, RX1 from fredmiranda, also no problems.

1DX is quite an investment though, but $1400 saving I think makes it worth grey market consideration...

Here in Bangkok it cost about $ 5300 from a real shop, with good service and full Canon warranty. Online shops have a lower price than that

You must either be a CPA or work for the IRS. Somehow I envision about .0000001% of folks who buy gear volunteering to send the IRS $$$$ to cover the sales tax they didn't pay. There's a greater chance of it snowing in Florida this month.

I would imagine that Canon as part of the refurb process takes that into consideration as to whether to replace the shutter or not. 15K is a days shooting for some people.

We are talking about a 1DX. They are made to be used. I've already got close to 200K on mine in a year and a half.


15k is high for a 60D refurbished... Means the person ran off a lot of clicks before sending it back in. But I agree on the shutter being low for a 1DX. Can easily run up 15k shutter over 5-10 gigs in a month (depends on whether wedding, event, etc.)

My 2 cents folks:

I spoke with Canon since I try to purchase from 42nd Street Photo whenever I can. 42nd Street is NOT an authorized Canon Dealer - Hence, there is no Canon Warranty ever in the box. However, after personally speaking with a Canon rep, I was informed that Canon WILL honor its one year warranty (even gray market, from a non-authorized dealer) provided you can produce a sales receipt.

Regards,
Ponz

$4999 at 42nd Street Photo.

Prior to placing an order contact this guy:

jonathan@42photo.com (646)-753-5005-Direct Line

He is the sales manager. He will ensure you don't get the 42nd Street Photo run around.

Only you can decide if it's worth the hassle to save $1,799

Buying a camera like this, ie. a Gray Market camera is no different than buying a used 1DX. Any used 1DX purchased is not officially covered under warranty by Canon.

So the risk with gray market is exactly the same as buying used - you are buying a camera that does NOT come with a warranty. Though in both cases, you have an equal chance that Canon may still service it and may even consider it so under warranty - though they have no legal obligation to doing so.

Often one sees "new" cameras for sale on the B&S boards, claiming to include a full mfgs. warranty. Unless the seller is an authorized Canon dealer. . . these claims are simply untrue. There is NO guarantee that Canon is Obligated to warranty and needed repairs on those bodies. Though, just as above, Canon has a good reputation for being quite liberal with their warranty policies (thanks Canon).

So, in the end, buy this one with zero shutter actuations (which if malfunctioning upon arrival will be protected by eBay under the buyer protection system - this is assured). Or buy a used one with a higher shutter count and even less protection . . . and also without any legally obligated Canon warranty.

To me, this just sets the price value of a used camera body (in this case a 1DX).
