My readers know I am The Wildlife Ho-tographer utilizing Canon equipment for 25 years. Over the decades I have used almost every film and digital EOS camera and EF lens in Bird , Wildlife and Travel photography. You can see more of my works on MichaelDanielHo.com
As a general rule, I always own the cameras and lenses in my equipment bag but has access to other gear on an as needed basis. I purchase the equipment new as they are announced but also buy high quality refurbished gear for backup. For those who are hesitant in buying used or refurbished equipment, read my earlier post on this topic.
As you also know, I do not accept any advertisement or commissioned link on my Blog or website and do not endorse any company. I am completely unbiased and do not accept any form of compensation from any company. The Canon Direct Store in the U.S. has an extensive list of consumer and professional refurbished equipment. Unfortunately, the professional gear are snapped up almost as soon as they are listed. Check the following links and see if you can find something you want at a reasonable price. The equipment is covered by a one year Canon warranty, just like a new purchase. Good luck and keep checking back.
