    Adorama and B&H seem out.
    Any other good places to get a refurbished 5D classic?

    They are pretty old so chances of finding a refurb is pretty slim. I would just pick up a used one on FM or potn, they seem to be going for as low as $900 from certain sellers

    Yea, just scared to buy used from someone and just trust their word that they didn't beat the hell out of it.

    I think about 90% of the gear I buy is second hand. If buying locally, I just make sure to examine it properly and test it out well.

    If purchasing online, I just try to make sure the person has good feedback and provides photos and whatnot. I would say alot of people that do shoot are just hobbyist that do take care of their gear. Photojournalists and wedding/sports shooters I would say are a different story
