Does anyone have any thoughts on buying refurbished cameras?
My own experience has been positive. Since the camera has had to be returned for some reason, it has gotten a more thorough testing and inspection than normal quality control. Though there can be problems which are missed, you have at least as good a chance of getting a good unit, as if you bought new. As a rule, refurbished cameras have a shorter warranty period than new ones, though. If you are someone who normally buys extended warrantys, then a refurb is not for you.
