Terminology - Or is there a difference?
I purchased the "refurbished" Nikkor 24-70 from Nkon when it went on sale last week and it arrived yesterday. It appears new, not a mark on it, and shows no sign of previous use or wear. I took it for a test drive into low light and it works flawlessly. I am glad I got it. This is my first purchase from Nikon of a refurbished item and I am pleased with the shipping, handling and the like new condition of the lens. The $500.00 savings over a new lens is a no brainer. However, when I examined the 90 day warranty slip enclosed I noticed it said Nikon "reconditioned" product.
Is there a difference? I checked some on-line consumer/camera references and it appears that reconditioned products have a different definition than refurbished products. Ebay's definition of reconditioned items seems to imply they are a bit better than refurbished items. Has anyone rec'd a warranty stating Nikon "refurbished" product?
