Remember that if you buy from Canon they will charge you sales tax in most states.

I think the real risk of buying Canon refurb bodies is there's no way to tell what is/was truly wrong with the body.

Sometimes a problem reported by the previous owner cannot be recreated for whatever reasons at the refurbishing center.

Sometimes, there's just way too many hot/dead pixels which is why the camera is returned (I returned one for that exact same reason). Mapping out those many pixels is not really a solution. Mine had a few groups of pixels on the sensor that were bad and a bunch that were bad single pixels. Collectively with what was already mapped out at the factory during manufacturing, that was a lot of bad pixels and the sensor should have been scrapped.

I think Canon prices the refurbished bodies way too high. There are better deals for brand new with warranty out there.

Refurbished lenses are a different story though and I have mostly heard positive feedback around refurb lenses.

Well after contemplating this, loading my cart at Henry's a few times, only to chicken out, then re-reading this entire thread AGAIN... I pulled the trigger. When I went through the regular checkout yesterday the minimal shipping was added to the order. But today I used the Paypal checkout and the shipping was not added. We'll see how it pans out...

^^Henry's is arguably best of the lot. Stay as far away as you can from Merkle's.

Why do you say this? Just curious, I've been looking at the Henry's deal closely for a while

I just woke up to an email from Henry's stating my camera has shipped!!! So much for the two-week (or longer) wait that has been speculated here. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

My experience with Merkle's has been completely frustrating so far.

* No clue about inventory
* Willful misrepresentation of inventory
* Willful misrepresentation of expected ship dates and actual ship dates (they shipped the same package on 3 different days per their stories)
* Lying about problems with Canada Xpresspost as the reason to ship UPS (even when the order explicitly stated Xpresspost for USA delivery)
* Lying on 2 different occasions (AFTER shipment and AFTER bringing it to their attention that the UPS tracking says "standard" but package not yet picked up) about the UPS service being the next day service. Turned out to be a standard service. 7 calendar days to reach me after shipment
* Blatant disregard for integrity and honesty in the transaction
* Blatant disregard for good customer service
* Will not respond to emails at all. Will not return your calls at all even after they say they will.

I will never ever shop there again.

Henry's been great so far with the return and refund. They did mess up the paypal refund by initiating a separate payment transaction instead of using the "Issue Refund" link on the original transaction. This attracted additional fees from Paypal coming out of my pocket. Was a long drawn hassle with Henry's to get this corrected, but they did correct it in the end. My point of contact with Henry's had a bit of an attitude (Customer's always wrong, Henry's always right! What do I know about business and return processing and paypal refunds! etc. etc.). He seemed a bit boxed-in in his approach towards entertaining my communications around problems with the return/refund. Anyway, it went well after quite a bit of struggle and delays!

Henry's was super with the original order though. Everything was quick and easy. Shipped very quickly and via Xpresspost. It's just that their paypal based returns/refunds are a bit of a gray area where even they probably don't know what they are doing.
