Six weeks or so ago, I ordered a 24-70mm F2.8 refurb during a 10 percent off sale. I checked a couple of other items and they seemed priced OK, and jumped at the 24-70mm then found out that I only saved about $20. Lense arrived quickly and well packaged, (shipped out of Louisville) and worked very well. I wished I had done a little more research but didn't get burned badly. It did not have US in the serial number, but the NikonUSA registration site took it just fine.
I do have a preference for refurbished lenses under the idea that they have been fully checked out and adjusted to spec.
