I wanted another option....

Used gear when I can get it, even if I have to wait, new if I can't.

However, I only purchase locally, we have a very affective classified ads forum in Vancouver BC run by one of the photography retailers where you can pick up used gear fairly quickly.  Meet the person locally, test out the item, hand over your money, less surprises this way.

Never buy from a pro, I don't care if it was his second body and he rarely used it.

Hindsight is better than foresight, except for lost opportunity costs.
