fuji does not warranty grey market cameras.

with the orb issue and sensor replacement for the x10 and xs-1 cameras, as well as x100 sticky aperture blade being listed as warranty repair.

to get the warranty repair free is must be sent to the country of importation.

Hi badpickev,
It shows that one should think twice about buying things cheaper on the grey market or in other countries. In the end one might have to pay more then the original price.
Each country has a different price regime—here in Australia prices are generally higher than in the US even so there is an almost parity in the dollar.
However everyone has to make up their mind regarding purchases.
Re; “ORBS” in my Fujifilm X-S1,
I have this camera since May, and yes I can get orbs if I take images against the light, but in all my normal photographical situations I had no problems at all. Certainly nothing I would do to get the sensor changed.
In fact I have heard a lot of stories from people who after changing censors are now less pleased with the performance of their camera.
I personally highly recommend the X-S1 for anyone wanting a bridge camera which is not all auto. The X-S1 has in my opinion the best features of any bridge camera on the market.
* Manual zoom lens with a great range from a wide 24 to 624mm
* High resolution EV with 1 440 000 pixels
* Good flip-out LCD making it easy to take macro shots etc.
* Beautiful feel and look

Cheers Moxi from Down-Under Australia
