‘RENEWED' is just a generic term used to describe something that can’t quite be sold as brand new. In most cases it’s just an item that has been returned after a change of mind, maybe after stern words from their better half when they got home. Usually the only sign is a slightly marked box.
They may have a small fault that is then rectified. They may have been used. Whatever the reason, these items are then individually checked by the manufacturer, warrantied and supplied with all original accessories. But, for the lucky buyers it means BIG SAVINGS!

TIPA Awards 2008 - Best Professional Lens
What TIPA say... "This ultra-wide-angle zoom offers an extensive array of shooting opportunities for professionals and photo enthusiasts looking for superb optical quality. The lens construction consists of 14 elements in 11 groups with 2 ED glass elements and 3 aspherical lenses.
A newly developed Nano Crystal Coating reduces ghosting and flare between the lens element and the sensor. The lens offers a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 at all focal lengths – allowing for shooting in low light conditions – and the close focusing distance on offer is just 0.28m/0.9ft. A rounded diaphragm opening with 9 blades makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural (Bokeh effect).
The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) allows quiet and fast autofocus, and permits manual override at any time with no delay."
