Return RX100Va to Beach Camera

I bought it from Beach thru Amazon $898. I requested a return from Amazon and it was granted.

"We've accepted your return request. Once Beach Camera Same Day Shipping receives the item below, we'll issue a refund to your original payment method"

I ordered the 'accessory package kit' which included extra batteries, charger, mem card, mini tripod, etc.  I have all the accessories, but not necessarily all the plastic wrap they were in.

Does anyone know if Beach is picky about that?*

Then more importantly on to if I should return it...  I have an RX100m2 which has water spots on sensor from being submersed.  I chose Va as replacement as I wanted fast lens for night shots and indoor use, etc.

Then after a few hiking trips I realized that I missed the 70-100 range.  Plus the 100-200 range would be great for birds, snakes, bighorn sheep, etc.  I mostly take images of landscapes and tend to use wide lenses, not tele for that as it my style which I why I thought I'd be OK with 5a vs. 6.

Then it hit me, my old RX100m2 works fine except for the sensor water spots.  BUT these spots are only really an issue at f-stops over ~3.2.  So my water damaged m2 should still be fine for low light photography when shooting nearly wide open.  Is my thinking there sound?
