I bought my refurb 60D a year ago. I hadn't considered it must have been handled by other people before me. I should have purchased new. ;)

Actually, if the camera shop had checked out the camera or shown it to someone else, they should have taken the time to wipe it down, since they were selling it as "new". I mean, it is a $3.5k camera.

1) You have to be reasonable as a human being.

2) If you feel like you have the right to look over something before buying, whether a car, walking through a new house, clothes, knocking on that melon, looking over a bunch of bananas for spots, or searching for a camera, then you have to expect that when you buy one of these, somebody else thinks like you and did the same thing.

3) It is one thing to be a conscientious consumer and find discounts reasonably (price matching, coupons, etc), but to use the fact that somebody might have touched an item, regardless of the size or depth of a finger print, etc to get a discount seems a bit too unreasonable, and it is purely selfish rationalization to argue otherwise. An exception to this could be that a fingerprint is on the mirror or sensor of the camera, or the fingerprint is on the glass housing of a halogen light bulb, etc. There are some parts of electronic equipment that are not to be touched.

4) A vast majority of items you buy "new" have already been through several hands, at some point in the manufacturing, distribution, and sales stages.

If an item is damaged, that is a different story, and has a different answer, and things like a fingerprint on the mirror, sensor, halogen bulb, all constitute "damage" at that point.

Since TeamSpeed chimed in it gave me the idea that perhaps if you ETTR and bring it back in PP with some NR the fingerprint won't look so bad.

Too much work, just do a surface blur filter... :)

lol. You would never get some money. 99% of the people in camera stores are weird beginners that have no clue. If you wasn't able to answer a simple question like the discount thing (that I didn't ask btw.) you also wouldn't be able to explain which is the best camera for the people and why. Just stop writing such comments.

I don't think you get it. Asking for a discount over a fingerprint is not a "simple question." It shows the person is a douche. I wouldn't want to have a douche for a customer.

Your logic is non sequitur as none of this has anything to do with answering a basic camera or photography question for a customer.

+1

That applies for a lot, if not all businesses. When people ask for discounts at my place I feel the same way.

I am just glad that in most States, potential customers are not allowed to try on underwear. Perhaps our legislators should get to work doing something useful like protecting a prospective camera buyer.

That's what Yogi Bear was talking about in post #31.

So are you saying there should be a law that stores must sell cameras as used if potential buyers try them out pressed against their exposed bottoms? I certainly agree with that!

Sorry John, just couldn't resist! :oops:

Wondering why Canon doesn't seal their products before shipping out to customers like Sony does?

I am always amused when I see a woman call someone a "douche"...they should ask their mom what that is.
