I don't see a problem with it as long as the dealer is

reputable. One assumes it is the manufacturer that did the refurb, but the dealer is the one who must guarantee this. There should also be a warrantee on the item if the manufacturer did the refurb.

Refurbished Should be Better

In reply to: I don't see a problem with it as long as the dealer is

I was told by an employee of a major, very reputable digital camera manufacturer that the process for refurbishing cameras is alot more detailed and thorough than from a mass production factory line. Yes, make sure the dealer is reputable and furnishes you with a year's warranty. I have purchased 5 digital cameras now, all the same brand and all refurbished. To date, I have not had one single problem with any of them.
