With Costco's warranty and return policy, it is a no brainer. I'll repost what I posted in the previous thread:
I just did quick research, and it seems to be a killer deal. I shortly used SX 230 HS last year (bought on clearance for <$110 at Staples) and liked it. Then there was SX 260 HS which I have no experience with. But this SX 280 HS model is much better than its immediate predecessor:
...an all-new Digic 6 image processor. For low-light shooters, this is an important update, as it allows for less noise in pictures taken at higher ISOs. How much less? Canon claims the noise at ISO 1600 on the SX280 is equivalent to what you'd get at ISO 400 with the SX260.
Canon tuned up the camera's autofocus (AF) performance, too, making the AF more than 50 percent faster than the SX260.
I seriously cannot believe this. I was waiting for a confirmation email that never showed up. I got concerned. So, I switched back to the browser and what I had thought was the order confirmation screen was only the final confirmation screen. So, I never pressed "Complete Checkout" and now the camera is OOS and I am SOL. I want to say "fvck-fvck-fvck", but I will keep my rant clean.
