Hi all - considering a used EOS R for my next camera and primarily looking at options from MPB and KEH. It would be nice to get it from Canon directly since I hear of people getting decent deals on some things, but it's still listed at over $1600 from them. This is compared to used prices of around $1k from MPB/KEH or around $1400 new from anyone that still has them in stock. Can I expect this price from Canon to go down and come close to or maybe match what others are doing, given the recent release of the R8? Thanks!
Given Canon put time and materials into the refurbishment process and offer a guarantee with the unit, you might want to relate that to the alternative offers. Note that not all refurb units of the same model are the same price. More expensive ones may be essentially new and returned from stores after demonstration: which may mean they have little use, and others may have had an issue with packaging or returned because the wrong choice was made, again making them new in essence.
