Should I buy used?
3 months ago

So I am considering a used camera but I don't know if I have the skills or time to really test it, and that might prove folly considering it won't have a warranty from the manufacturer rather a 90 day warranty from the online seller. I can find out how many actuation the camera has and I understand it is in excellent condition. Supposedly it was turned in for an upgrade but that might just be a line they use (?). Certainly they are not going to reveal if there was a reason someone got rid of it, and they might not even know.

We're talking a savings of $600 bucks and I'm not sure if for that much I should just buy peace of mind with a one year warranty and not have to worry about examining the sensor or anything. (I've never done that). This would be my first FX camera.
