Quite a few people actually prefer refurbished camera! The one thing you want to know is if it was refurbished by the manufacturer or someone else and also how long the warranty is on it. If you go to adorama.com you can view refurbished there and I have heard great things about them. I believe they carry a 1 year warranty.
Now as to why some people prefer the refurb over the new is because the refurbished had to go through all of the testing and pass all of the spec tests where the new are just sent out off the line without that testing so you actually could be receiving a better "used" camera than new! I hope that makes sense. If you have any questions let me know. What camera are you looking at?
