I have had bad luck with "refurbs." I have never bought one directly, but a couple of times with electronics, once with a super expensive IPS monitor that was DOA, the equipment was replaced with refurb and the refurbs all had problems. I actually had to return the monitor 5 times before I got a model that did not fail within a matter of weeks. So my thinking is that if someone bought a camera with a problem and sent it back, a tech checks it out and it is back on the shelf as a refurb but the problem could easily be missed if it isn't replicated easily. That could even happen with the camera I just bought and returned. The yellow splodge in images only occurred about 10% of the time and in a certain mode. And practically speaking, the camera looked to be in mint condition. So hence my desire to try to buy something from a private party.
    Just so you know... a Used camera from a Dealer gets checked before it goes out, and usually includes some kind of a warranty. A Used camera from a private party is sold "AS IS"... with no warranty what's so ever...

    I bought a Used D300 from Robert's Camera... it developed a problem with the On/Off switch. Since they didn't have any "Used" D300s in stock, they sent me a factory refurbished D300 instead...

    Re: WTB Nikon D7100

    A fellow has a camera body with less than 3000 shutter clicks. Says he is original owner and is selling because too bulky for travel, bought it to take photos of his children. Doesn't have the original box and says he "doesn't know about the warranty" because he "never needed it." It is not my intention to bother people here with my quest for a camera, but am wondering if I am missing something? How does one figure out, for example, if a camera is a made for the US market model versus gray market. Why wouldn't someone register an expensive item like this?

    I definitely need to call Cameta camera. I just read Fred's post and re-read Don's post. I think it is much riskier, shutter count or no, to go the route I am going. I am liking the idea of a warranty more and more. Especially when I figure I can extend it.

    Warranties are not transferable. If you have the serial number you can check to see it it is USA or grey.

    You can register the product, even if it's been registered before, on the Nikon USA Support website if you have serial number.

    If it's grey-market the website will tell you.
