Re: GFX 100S no availability anywhere?

Hello, I might be up to a scolding from you. I hesitated between the GFX 100S and the 50SII while there were just a few 100S cameras available, and instead bought a GFX 50S II with the kit lens. I am so amazed at the quality photos you can get that GAS got me, and now I'm thinking how better those photos could be with the 100S, including cropping and macro photos. Anyway, I'm able to return it and instead get a 100S, the problem is that now there is no availability to buy it as new. I "bought" a new one at amazon.com, but they don't have an estimated delivery date and I can cancel any time. I don't know for sure how long could the wait be. Likewise, I saw at amazon.com that they (Amazon Warehouse) are selling one used in "very good" condition, with no shutter count, for $500 less. Condition says the generic: "Item will come in original packaging. Packaging will be damaged."

Is getting a good camera from Amazon Warehouse like playing lottery? Could the camera come damaged or with some internal defects et al? Was it a return from a customer because it had something bad of if that was the case would Amazon said "refurbished"? That's a lot of what if scenarios.

Would you wait to get a new one, being that nobody knows when those 100S will be back on the market? Thank you!
