So.. I found a guy selling his "Brand NEW" Canon 6D with 24-105 f4L lens for $1650. I am wondering if I should bite the bullet. Below are my worry points
1)There is no retail box , but all accessories are present. The whole bundle atleast visually looks brand new. I fired some test shots and it looked and felt good.
2) He let me see the bill, but he said due to some tax purposes he will not give it to me. SO I am not really sure how the warranty would work in this case.
3) I have seen some deals online for almost $2000 with mail in rebates etc plus Thanksgiving is almost around the corner.

So my question is .. for the savings of around $350, do you think I should take the risk and buy this. Or wait for any deal and buy it when it hits $2000. Please do let me know.

Thanks

I was under the impression once the original owner, regardless of length of time from purchase, sells an item Canon will not honor any warranty?

Unless you print your own receipt, Canon will not honor the warranty.
Make sure to check the shutter count, and photographers like to keep the receipt to help their deductions at tax time.
I would jump on it.

a 24-205mm lens is priceless :)

From 10/7 on CanonPriceWatch: Today’s eBay frenzy deal is another great deal from BigValueInc. They have the Canon EOS 6D for $1349.99. This ties for the lowest price seen for this body new (note this is likely import version, but has WiFi and GPS).

If he won't let you take a copy of the receipt, then that would put up a red flag for me.

Sorry My bad.. it's a typo error. I meant a 24-105 F4L. The regular Kit lens available with the bundle.

Well He let me take a picture of the receipt covering the Date's and his personal information etc with a piece of paper.. Can I print this receipt out to see if Canon honors this receipt.. Again this wouldn't be on my name right ? so...
