There are many folks who are very enthusiastic about the CLP. My experience may temper that a bit. I bought a 7D about a month and a half ago from the CLP. When it arrived, it seemed like the shutter was difficult to depress, not like my other Canon dSLR's at all. It had 1150 shutter actuations, as measured by gphoto2. I sent it back and requested a different one. This time the shutter difficulty was slightly better (less stiff), but when I ran gphoto2, the actuations were 25,600! There was some physical blemishes on the top of the camera as well. Of course, YMMV.
