I am only trying to estimate my chances before buying.

If you get any defective product from a reputable retailer in most parts of the world you have a legal right to an exchange or refund.

This may be a minor hassle if it occurs but you should have a new camera within a week.

As to what the risk is - nobody knows.

My guess, based on 91 posting images at dpreview showing they did not test sensibly and none posting an image testing sensibly is any risk is very low to very, very low.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
