Re: Are you worried about light leak in your X-T1?
In reply to photo perzon, Mar 27, 2014

I have read a lot about the light leak problem of the XT-1, but at this time I do not have a XT-1. I am looking to purchase a XT-1 but I am wondering if Fuji has actually come out and stated that cameras from this serial number and forward is completely free of this leak problem. I have read of people stating that the serial number and above numbers that Fuji stated was free of light leaks were actually not free of leaks and that they had purchased cameras with higher serial numbers that do have a problem with light leakage. I was looking at a camera with the serial number of 41A05891 but I was wondering if these serial numbers were free of the dreaded light leak, or if the only way to tell was to make your purchase and then test it. Any one know what the actual status is on the XT-1's light leak problem with Fuji?
