B&H would NOT send you a returned product sold as new.

Why would you think that? Henry Posner of B&H has said more than once this is OK to sell returned merchandise as new:

" Does B&H ever repack, or do they just toss it back into inventory?

We are very strict about returned merchandise. Each piece is individually inspected. That means that when the customer's parcel gets to us, it's unpacked by our staff, each piece inspected and then the whole thing repacked. If it's in as-new condition, according to our strict standards, it's returned to inventory. If not, depending on circumstances, it's marked "open box" and sold that way at a discount, or returned to the customer."

There have been a number of threads on this subject, like these:

Just got my used Rebel XT, is this common?

Does BH sell returned items to customers as new?

And a bunch more:
