    adorama has a nice selection of refurbs

    link doesnt work, but search 'canon refurb' and youll get a bunch of results with their canon refurb items

    just buy used, ive bought close to 80% of my gear used on the fredmiranda forums, never had a single problem. just make sure the seller has good feedback and you shouldnt have any problems.

    the 85L II and 24-105L came out after the 10-22 but its on there. when a lens came out doesnt determine whether it be a refurbed item or not

    just did a quick search on fm and most of the recent 10-22's sold already but they seemed to be selling for around $575-600, not too bad

    I always thought it was where they were made. USA versions made here, imported ones made in Japan or elsewhere.

    USA version is sold in the US with a fully warranty. Imported versions are sold in other countries and typically don't come with manufacturer honored warranties.
