Seriously, one paint chip on the body? We're not talking about a classic car, these are tools. If they work, then they work. I can't see how anyone would care jack-and-all about the exterior condition. The bodies are built to take a beating, so let them do their job.:confused:

Personally don't see why you had to start another thread about the subject. Your experience is not the norm. Canon has told that they'd issue you a full refund, but have no replacements in stock. If you can't live with the chip, have you asked them if you could send it into the service center to have the body plate/lens release switch replaced under warranty? Call customer service and see what they can do to help you.

My 7D came looking brand new. Sorry to hear about your situation.

Some people care about the physical condition of their things, as well as resale value. I understand you can't see how someone would care about that.

I'm sorry you don't see the difference between me contributing my experience to the CLP thread and me posting this one to get a baseline of everyone's experience with the program. I have called and talked to several representatives to see what Canon is willing to do. They're quite willing to take it back and replace it, which I can certainly appreciate. I haven't asked if they are willing to do that, but I might consider doing so if you think that might be a possibility.

I think people are starting to add their own negative connotation to what I'm posting here, which is unfortunate. This is not a Canon blasting thread or anything purportedly negative, case in point why I refrained from adding any of my own input that could somehow bias the thread in a certain direction until I got a good sample of answers from people. This is a simple feedback thread on people's experiences and what mine has been.

So then does it make sense to go for the CLP? My situation is as follows:-

1. I will trade in a SD600 which does not work right now. The repair will cost $70 which does not seem justified for a 6MP camera
2. Ideally I want a T2i with a 28-135 or a 18-135. These are not available in the CLP right now
3. A T2i body from the CLP will cost me $465 after shipping and tax (I get a discount of $130 due to CLP)
4. On ebay, I can get a manufacturer refurbished 18-135 for $310

So, does $775 look like a good price for these specs? A new T2i with 18-135 comes for $960 on ebay. It's a question of $185. Should I go for it?

$310 for the refurbished 18-135 is pretty steep considering that tons of people (including me) are selling or have sold brand new 18-135s (from kits) for well under $300 ( I sold mine for $270 I think, never ever used)

Bought a 60D about 2 months ago. The only way to detect it wasn't new was due to the white box it came in. Never checked the shutter count but that doesn't really bother me. The CLP experience has been excellent and a great way to get a deal on equipment.
