I ended up buying a 6D from them. They were out of refurbished 7D's in the kit I purchased and offered a new 6D body at a very good discount. It is supposed to arrive on or before the 29th, so I should be a go for the B-Day party.

Thanks everyone for the support..

I love buying refurbished stuff from Canon (probably north of $10k now) and I really don't think 40k actuation is a problem.

That said, I think it was a mistake to buy a 7D instead of a 6D.


Edit: I see you did eventually get a 6D. Smart move. :)

I bought a refurbished 60D and it had 165 on the shutter
(but used the free magic lantern to check the shutter count)

My conclusion, those who get a refurb unit with low shutter count are either very lucky OR they do not know how to check the shutter count properly :D...

I got my refurb 60D through Canon with around 625 shutter actuations - I don't remember the exact number but low 600's.
I got this using my Linux computer and also a PC software program call ShutterCount.exe. Fortunately both numbers matched.
I guess I am one of the lucky ones :)

I have purchased a 7D and a 5DIII through the Canon Loyalty Program and both were like new in appearance. They each had near 1K actuations but both have performed flawlessly. If I ever buy another body I will seriously consider refurbished.

I have two 7Ds with over 100,000 clicks on them, and no problems to date (knock on wood).

Sorry to hear of your bad experience. I've bought numerous refurbs over the year from various sources (tho never direct from Canon), with no problems. What little customer service I've had to rely upon from Canon has been excellent, but I have been a CPS member for a number of years.

BTW, I'd hardly call a 6D a replacement for a 7D... They are two very different animals. But for a b'day party I'd choose the 6D over a 7D any day. For sports, birds, wildlife, I'd get out the 7D and put the 6D away.

I have bought a refurbished Canon 40D, 7D and various lenses through Canon, and have never had an issue. Buying the refurbished cameras through the Loyalty Program saved even more.:lol:

I have a Fuji HS20Exr refurb for over 2 yrs, a low shutter count used 600D and a refurb Dell 1720 laptop (had it just over 4 yrs was a yr old when bought, and only now some sticky Keys). Refurbished is good as long as you get 12 mth warranty with it.

I brought a refurb 5D3 from Canon about a year and a half ago, and paid $2.6k after tax, that's like $1k off from brand new. I didn't check the shutter count and I wouldn't care unless it misbehave. That said, buying a refurb 7D now is kinda a big mistake. 7D came out in late 2009, so we are talking about buying a camera that could have been abused for 5 years. When I brought mine, at most it would have taken heavy use for one year. So, people may want to take that into consideration. As far as buying from B&H is concern, I wouldn't trust buying used from them. I recently brought a used tripod with the item condition of 9+, that's near perfect if you think about it. Well, the problem is when I got it, it's broken. I'm not talking about missing accessories(although one could say certain item missing means the tripod cannot fully function to the spec listed), but broken as in they didn't check it, and simply rated the item condition as 9+. One of the tripod leg wouldn't when extend, it didn't stop, and just fall off, this isn't something broken via shipping. I would agree that I would prefer the warranty and return period is longer for Canon, but for me I could actually drive to Irvine center the next business day if needed be.
