only concern is warranty... but a nice way around that is to buy insurance. which when you get to that price of a camera, it's better to just get insurance anyhow.
It's a pretty solid body, and there are a few people on here who would definitely pick up a refurbed item without thinking twice. when a company does a refurb, it likely means that it was a test camera in a store, which was sent back in after a time to be cleaned, recalibrated, gone over with a fine toothed come, and repackaged to put on sale again. It will be less likely to be defective then a brand new one out of the box.
