A few Ebay Bundles...too dangerous?

I decided to see what was out there on ebay, curious as to what you guys think.

http://cgi.ebay.com/CANON-XH-A1-XHA1...QQcmdZViewItem

I notice they say all sales final, so does that mean no 1 year manufacturers warranty? The big reason I`m interested is the extra lenses they have.

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Canon-XH-A1-...QQcmdZViewItem

This one fails to mention the $250 rebate so I don`t know if they are a registered canon seller. The extras are tempting, but when spending so much money I want to know if anything goes wrong i`ll have Canon honoring warranties etc. Yea...seems I should not buy from ebay, but I`d like to hear your thoughts anyway.

Those kits are bogus and you can get the A1 cheaper from BHPhoto with rebate.

The above comments are on the mark. Ebay or any other unauthorized dealer is not the place to buy any video equipment. Those extra lenses that you get are of poor quality, so you're not really getting a better buy. I agree with another reply... stick with an authorized dealer.
