My TX1 - SN: 27XX has the issue, big time.  I'm not "worried" about it because I don't (or at least have not yet) done the sorts of photography with the camera where the light leak becomes a problem.  Nor, am I especially concerned about the effect of the problem on resale value, because it is very rare I sell camera equipment.

However, I did buy and pay for a product without manufacturing defects and that's not what I got (an honest error for sure, but still a significant defect).  Also, I buy through Amazon because they stand behind what they sell. I've bought tons of stuff through Amazon (when you live in the sticks, mail order is how one shops), but have never returned or exchanged anything before.  Nonetheless, the ability to do that if there is a problem is part of what I pay for with Amazon.

Therefore, I have commenced the exchange process with Amazon.  I am hoping to get the new body (hopefully not in the affected serial number range) before I must send in my existing TX1 body in late April.  That way I won't be without the use of the camera (I hope).
