Some do and some don't.

Well, Canon doesn't make different versions of the 6D do they? So if not, how could a grey market one not have a feature? Grey market just means its a camera sold in a different company with a different warranty term then where the new owner might be, thus complicating the warranty period, or voiding it completely.

I believe they do make two versions of the 6D. One with wifi/GPS and one without. (external link) Even the manuals cover both the wifi/GPS version (WG) and non-wifi/GPS (N).

Back to the original topic- my Canon 6D refurbished body from Adorama came today. It arrived in a sealed Canon refurbished box with all of the accessories, and everything looks new. Getting ready to test it out.

One thing that Adorama needs to correct- they list a 90-day Adorama warranty, when in fact it comes with a Canon USA 1-year warranty in the box. This is likely since Canon recently changed their refurb warranty.

But that doesn't make either one a grey market, even if that is true. Grey market means selling a camera that sold in one region of the world to someone in a different region, and thus you cannot carry over the warranty. Basically in a nutshell, "grey market means you may not have any warranty to rely on". Just to clear this up with a few other members that have posted on this subject...

Thank you for the clarification, and finding out that Canon puts a 1-year warranty on these too makes this very tempting...UGH... I'm just wondering if I were a bit more patient if I could save a bit more. I don't know if I should bite or not. Such decisions!

Gray market don't have Wifi, no warranty, and sold by bigvalueinc...i would not do business with them.

A refurbished camera is basically a new camera with a few shutter count, mostly from people testing out the camera then returning it.

Are you sure? Mine bought from bigvalueinc has wifi.

In my understanding, non-wifi version is extremely rare and it is designed only for some countries which restrict the use of wifi.

Is there anyone who has a non-wifi 6D?

That is my understanding too. 6D without WiFi must have been intended for countries where the use of WiFi is limited by the law. Gray market does not automatically mean lack of WiFi.

However, the danger is that when you buy a gray market item, there is a danger that you will receive one of those bodies. It's a risk.

We had a problem in that we were offering a 12-month return-to-Canon warranty as per Canon, but we were aware that the card inside the boxes (which we aren't permitted to open) stated it was only a 90-day warranty.
This meant we couldn't state on the website that it was a year......

So - if I understand correctly, you had a Canon refurb from us recently with a 12-month warranty card in the box?

If anyone else has had one with a 90-day warranty card, it'd be good to know

Is that the case with all the gray market 6D bodies? I have also read here on the forum, that some of the 'gray' bodies they got were US models with warranties.

Any direct import ('grey market') lenses sold by Adorama will be clearly marked, and you are more than welcome to contact me directly should you have any concerns regarding a specific listing.

We don't sell "imported" camera bodies. Anyone in the US selling an "imported" body is not an authorized reseller.

For, I think, about the past 10 years, the policy of Canon USA has been to honor their warranty for any unit sold though an authorized Canon reseller, whether it has been imported by an authorized agent or is direct import. [BUT, not all Canon subsidiaries follow this, eg Canon UK won't currently service a direct import unit].

All the customer requires is the original, dated receipt to verify the reseller and the date of sale – apparently you don't even need the warranty card - and even if you do have the warranty card, you will still have to provide the receipt!

Some consumers believe that the only practical reason to buy a USA warranted lens is if you think you may require warranty service outside the USA.

On grey market lenses, Adorama provides a warranty which is identical to the terms of manufacturer's warranty, but the length of the warranty is equal to the length of the manufacturer's warranty - or a year, whichever is less.

Equipment classified as USA, from an authorized dealer in the United States, will be eligible for Canon warranty service (almost) anywhere in the world.

Yes, I ordered a 6D refurb from Adorama last week. Included in the Canon sealed box was a 8.5 X 11 paper titled "Canon USA Inc. Refubished Product Limited Warranty (USA Only). The terms and conditions are listed underneath, which span on the back of the paper. This also coincides with Canon's recent change to a 1-year warranty on their refurbs.

Sounds as though we may have got through our old stock - of 60Ds, at least.

As soon as I have clarification that they've all gone, we can update our website.

Thanks so much for the heads up!

Any timeframe when the 6D refurb might be back in stock?
