I'm glad you finally got a genuinely NEW camera. Unfortunately, this problem seems to be increasingly common with camera stores. Back in 2011 I purchased a "new" camera via Amazon from "Murphy's Camera" and when my camera arrived several small accessory items that were supposed to be in the box were missing and the camera EXIF showed the camera had been used for about 100 exposures and some of the menu settings had been changed from what should have been the default settings.

I immediately contacted the seller as well as Amazon. I never heard back from Murphy's Camera but Amazon agreed to either take the camera back and refund the full purchase price or refund a huge chunk (40%) of the cost and let me keep it. In the end I felt like it was a good deal for a "gently used" camera so I took the 40% discount.

Still, it really makes me mad that camera stores are selling used cameras as "new" cameras when they are NOT "new" cameras.
