Exchange or Return Light Leak Affected XT-1 ?
5 months ago

My XT-1 has the light leak (tested it) and serial # falls within the affected range.  I still have 30 days to return the camera to Crutchfield (they have a 60 day return policy).  All else is fine and I love it, it works great and the light leak wouldn't really impact me for how I use the XT-1.  However, I am worried about down the road and if I want to sell it to upgrade and the resale value.  If I don't exchange it - I will definitely still have it repaired but if I can return it for a camera that isn't affected, should I?  Once repaired would it still lose some value?  I know to me if I was purchasing it used and all else was good and the leak was repaired, I wouldn't care but I'm afraid some might.  I am leaning to just having it repaired since I will be keeping it for a long while but hope I don't regret it someday.

Should I just return it?
