    I think Adorama (or was it?) has new ones for $699, as of last night anyway.

    Yep, they still do -- good call. Hard to justify refurb for limited savings vs that price.

    What exactly would they refurb for this camera? Presumably there is no dust on the sensor with a fixed lens… I'm not sure what gets fixed other than a general cleaning…?

    I think when people take cameras for "test drives" many places will not sell them as new anymore. So quirky cameras often get returned. I'd assume that these cameras were all just returns that worked fine, but people didn;t like noisy images at high ISO or the sluggish software that comes with the camera (or any of the other imperfections in these awesome cameras).

    A week ago the Merrills were at $899 at both B&H and Adorama, so $699 is an awfully good deal. I have the 2 (Thanks Luke!) but the 1 or 3 would be tempting if it were a good buying time.
