  9. You have no clue how many hands been on that camera and who has done what to it. Would you buy one of those cameras that walmart has on display, same thing but the one you're looking at might or might not have been tethered to a display.

    it has a 2 year warranty on it, so it breaks and you send it back *shrug*
     
  11. oh... well in that case go for it if you don't mind being without a camera for a period of time if something does happen and you have to send it off. :bigthumb:

    but i think ill be able to tell if its really fucked up pretty quickly, in which case I'd just send it back.
