I am looking to purchase a new camera in the very near future. I found the model I am interested in on Amazon. However, there is one item listed at a much better price that states it is from a seller and the item is "used-like new". Has anyone had any experience purchasing "used" items from Amazon? Thanks for your input.

I bought a 10d over Amazon as a stopgap camera at Christmas after all my gear was stolen. Actually happened to be traveling where the camera was, so picked it up from the guy. No probs. Consider tho, that these are items being sold by people other than "Amazon," so it's a lot like eBay. No complaints here, tho.

I've bought a few new items from 3rd party Amazon sellers. I like it because most manufacturers will still honor warranties if Amazon is an approved retailer and the actual seller isn't (the actual seller's name is printed pretty small on the electronic invoice and most don't notice or care as long as it says "Amazon" at the top).

Nope, only sold stuff there, just like any site though, when you buy from someone you must rely on the feedback.....

Thanks for the info. I really appreciate it. I will keep a close eye on all the seller's feedback before any purchases.

I have sold a bunch of stuff, including photo equipment like my XTi/400D, on Amazon Marketplace. Getting better price than ebay.com, no listing fees, and much more protection for the seller than ebay.
