You could have bought it new for £399 last week and claimed £100 cash back . That offer has finished but £50 cash back still available so why buy 2nd hand .

First of all they aren’t 2nd hand, so get your facts right. Secondly they may well have had £100 cash back last week but they don’t now do they?

Refurbished is a bit vague but could mean reconditioned or even tidied up. You may get a new item if you are lucky and they are dumping surplus stock or an apparently working return which may not have had a complete overhaul, but will one returned for a decentered lens have been checked and manufacturing tolerances are pretty fluid in their interpretation in this respect?. Seems more likely that the chances are higher of getting a user rejected peripheral standard item.

My new FZ330 is showing a 2 year guarantee after registration and does a refurbished model have a 2 year warranty? I have boosted it up with a 2 year John Lewis insurance so hopefully there is a good chance it might make 2 years. 

Prefer new myself and luckily was in time for the £100 but £50 still seems a good deal.
