I think I put myself into a tough spot. This Friday I met with a seller from Craigslist to purchase a used x100. The camera looked to be in great condition, it was focusing quickly and I took some quick exposures in P mode and they seemed pretty good. One or two were slightly overexposed but I chalked it up to user error. We were in a coffee shop so of course the photos that turned out were shot at or around f2. Everything looked to be in good shape so I handed over the cash and went on my way. Everything was not in good shape. The seller seemed respectable but i should have definitely done more research and paid more attention. He gave me the wrong USB cable. The warranty and purchase receipt were not included with the other paperwork and boxes. And most distressingly now that I've had time today to properly test my new camera I'm certain it is suffering from the sticky aperature blade issue. I can inspect the blade visually and see they are not closing and anything above f2 becomes increasingly overexposed. I sent an email to Fuji asking what my options are. I've done some googling on the problem and it is my understanding that Fuji charges 140 for the repairs but only if you have the original purchase receipt. Even this is difficult for me to swallow. I waited several years for the price of this camera to come down to a level I am able to afford. I've seen people posting that repairs for this can be over 600 dollars if paying the full price. That's definitely more than I can afford. I'm hoping some forum members here will be more knowledgeable about the problem and I would appreciate any information ya'll have on what my options may be going forward. If it helps the serial number on my camera is 14A00080. Thank you very much!
