Hope no one dropped mine either.

A scenario like this is likely not to make it into the refurb pool. Except for one instance I never seen anyone mention getting a refrub from Canon that was less than "new" cosmetically. The one instance I'm referring to was an individual that supposedly got a refurb with like 20000 clicks and some very obvious cosmetic shortcomings. That just didn't add up for a Canon or Adorama refurb.

Personally I would forgo any extended warranty. Canon gives you a 90-day warranty. If the camera is well exercised duing that interval any latent defects will show up.

I bought my 40D refurb. It lasted a long time before the shutter crapped out. Fortunately I had also purchased an extended warranty with it. They totally replaced the shutter and even payed shipping both ways. Since then, happy trails.

So if you get a refurb. I recommend getting an extended warranty. Now if you are only saving $200 with the refurb purchase, and you pay for an extended warranty, then it might be better to buy new. So you would need to save more than $200 to make it work with a warranty.
You do usually get 90 days with the Refurb.

Did you buy that warranty thru Canon or 3rd party ?

I bought my refurbished 60D last summer and have been very happy with it. It came with 51 clicks on the shutter and not a scratch or mark - looked like new right out of the box!

I just got my 7d refurb back from canon. 2 months past the 90 day warranty period for funky focus...l

It came with ZERO marks or scratches and only 628 clicks...

I could NOT get the focus adjusted (MFA) at all with my 70-200 f2.8L IS USM mkI...

Other than that I'd buy refurb again next time I'm ready to buy...
