I've bought both ways, open box at Adorama and refurbished at Canon. No problems with either. Canon does charge sales tax here in Tennessee though.

"Open box" items at major retailers are usually items that have been returned by a previous buyer. While sometimes it's just buyer's remorse, many items do get returned due to defects, which in the case of lenses be decentering or focusing issues. I therefore steer clear on principle.

We don't really know the provenance of refurbished gear from Canon, but each item I have purchased has been indistinguishable from new (as others have mentioned). I'd say it's a better bet, personally. Refurbished gear also comes with a full year warranty from Canon, so you are as protected as when buying new. And the Canon online store does accept returns if you find it defective for some reason.

Adorama would not classify a defective return as 'open box'; we would send it back to the manufacturer or distributor......where it would be refurbished.
