for artistic, nature, birds, animals, and images that need manual control

Also some low end DSLR cameras can be had for around $400+ or -
like factory refurbished and older models, I would not buy used
however.

Still at $259, that a heck of a good deal

Amazon has it for the same price (and a much better return policy).

Again, that's Amazon's new price.

BTW, in case you're wondering, I have nothing to do with Amazon...I just believe they do have the best return policy on the web. I do almost all my shopping at Amazon and never had any issues what-so-ever.

There have been a few people that had their account deleted by Amazon
for requesting to many refunds, something to keep in mind

One guy was banned for 3 returns in one year, but it was high dollar
items.

BTW they seem to be life long bans

I don't know about that. I've returned many items this past year and my account is still in good standing. Perhaps it has to do with the ratio between purchases and returns. I also would think that IF Amazon does in fact revoke accounts based on number of returns, that they would issue a warning first. That way, the customer would be more careful before buying. I also think that some changes Amazon has made to their policies over the past few years, encourage people to return more items than before. For instance, Amazon use to have a 30-day price match policy, which they've stopped back in 2008. Since then, I have returned many items because the price went down significantly after I bought them, so I bought a second and returned the first. Had they matched the price, I would not have done that. Another example is the new Lightning Deals policy. Once you place a lightning deal item in your cart, you have 15 minutes to purchase it or you loose the deal. In the past, the percentage of items sold would indicate whether Amazon was running out of the item or not and unless that percentage was real close to 100%, the customer had time to think, do some research and such before pulling the trigger. Now, 15 minutes is really not enough, so people will be buying lightning deal items and then do the research. If it's not what they want, they will feel like returning it for a refund.

They apparently never issue any warnings, from what people have
said, and most of the people claim to have bought lots of items,
sometimes over years, and just a few returns gets them banned,
it also seams that most of the time it was high dollar items, so you
may be safe, as long as you dont cost Amazon to much

From what I have read it applies more to "seller accounts".
