Ya I did have some problems, but it was a broken back wheel.. Canon then broke the rest of the camera, I still have the thousands of images I took with that camera after there calibrations were made to the camera and when ever I see them I immediately see so many problems in the images. But hey i'm not bitter about it and maybe I did get a bit angry. But I'm more than over it. After all its just a camera...They make um every day lol. I don't know why I never updated my gear info. I still use both the 100-400LII and the 70-300L as needed. they are both as sharp as one another but the 70-300L seems to collect more light in super dark conditions. I think the best thing you can do is just try and get the best images out of the camera that you can so you can evaluate what you got.

Jeff I saw that you were having issues a while back. Was that after a firm ware upgrade or something. Did they get everything resolved for you. Hope I'm not opening old wounds. All of the few customer reviews on the refurbished units were good and I thought it would be a good chance of getting one that had been well tested.
Thanks for the encouragement! I've always envied your images.
I noticed that your equipment list has the 70-300mmL from back when but see a lot of your posts are taken with the 100-400mmL II. Just haven't gotten around to editing your equipment list? The 100-400 LII is next on my wish list. Canon needs to sell them together as a kit with camo paint jobs.
