Does anyone else wonder why there are so many refurbished D7100's available. B&H has them in stock and Adorama's ebay site shows 112 sold and more for sale.

I know many bodies/lenses are in the hands of Nikon reps and venues where demo's are available. Does this account for all the D7100's that are "refurbished". Or, can it mean there are problems with the camera.

Someone, somewhere posted that buying refurbished is the way to go because it has been checked out, repaired if necessary, restored to factory specs and they don't have too many clicks. That makes good sense if indeed there are problems with this model which result in the number of refurbed bodies for sale.

There surely is a logical explanation of which I'm unfamiliar that will assuage my fear of buying new, the path I prefer.

Your thoughts?
