Buying a refurb 50D body from Canon... good idea?
Feb 19, 2011

I'm considering picking up a refurb 50D body from Canon.

This would be for my wife, as I already have two 7D bodies. We both shoot a lot of birds and wildlife and she currently uses a 30D. She is happy with that camera but one advantage to her using a 50D would be the increased image file size. She mainly shoots jpegs.
I also like the custom options and additional focusing modes on the 50D.

Has anyone here had any experience buying refurbs from Canon? It comes with a 90 day warranty which would be enough time to make sure it operates properly.

Should I expect that a Canon refurb is 100% up to proper specs and 100% functionally perfect?
