Your camera is on the next level. Tell him he/she is a CHAMPION.

Dont belive that shutter count scam - various software will give differ numbers. Try it !!
I think some even reset like a car oddometer.
Test it well.

Why are there so many refurbed Canons ???
Are they similar to Nikon Pentax Others on a %% basis ???
Whats wrong with this picture ???

I think I'll be ordering a refurb 5D2 soon too :D

Do you guys think it'd be worth it to buy a third party warranty? If so, who would you buy one from?
