Many of the refurbs we sell have never even left the factory prior to being refurbished - plus, they all come with a 12-month warranty.

Hmm, good to know thanks. I thought it was 3 months, nevermind.

It is, on all refurbs apart from Canon. If you need to return it during the warranty period - we simply send you another!

Did Adorama remove Bill Me Later? 6 months free money is always a good deal but I no longer see it.

Unfortunately, 'Bill Me Later' is down on our site, temporarily - the web team are working on geting it back up. We can still process it manually, but for 'phone orders only.
Apologies for any inconvenience this is causing.

Does that mean that those lenses didn't pass QC and were sent for repairs or there was an over-production and some lenses got marked as refurbs? Thank you!

They can have simply been pulled from the production line if something appears faulty, or if it hasn't passed the final inspection. Most of the time it is a very minor issue that needs correcting, nevertheless, once it is pulled from the normal flow of production, it gets flagged as a refurbished model, so you may get a unit straight from the factory that has never been used.

A refurb may also be an ex-store demo, possibly used in field tests or sales displays, or it may have been ordered in error and returned to the retailer (who can't then sell it as 'new' so it has to be sent back to the manufacturer for refurbishment).

All refurbished items will have been checked over by the manufacturer by hand, inspected very thoroughly, diagnosed, and calibrated by experienced technicians, and could therefore turn out to be more dependable than a new item - which will only have been checked by a process of systematic quality control protocol (ie by random sampling as it comes off the conveyor belt).

The term 1/2 tempted is pretty usual vernacular for not really serious. Least where I grew up.
