Exchange or Return Light Leak Affected XT-1 ?

Replacement - no wait

I've never done this before, but it looks like Amazon (where I got my XT1) has a replacement policy whereby they send you an identical replacement item and you have 30 days to ship the defective item back to them.  Even though I doubt I will ever run into the light leak problem with the kinds of photography I do, I do want what  paid for - a new camera free of manufacturing defects - and II don't think that is being an unreasonable, super-picky consumer.

I also don't want to be without the camera for weeks while the pony express mail service around here ships the camera for repair, it gets repaired along with probably thousands of other TX1's in the repair queue and it eventually find its way back to me.  It appears that the Amazon replacement method will get me a new camera in a few days and then I have plenty of time to send the old one back to them, so I won't have to do without for weeks.

I'm going to try this on Monday.
