This is one of those "what would you do?" questions.
I have a new 1DX that has showed Err 80 about 9 times. 6 the day after I got it, and 3 a few days after. It has not showed it once since. I have an open RMA with BH Photo and they are willing to exchange but they will only order the new one only when this one returns. They did say I would go to the front of the list though since it was a replacement due to defect. I have until the end of this week to send it in. They have also agreed to a return for full credit if I can buy one from somewhere else.
I am leaving town 8/11 and need it, so sending it to BH and waiting for a replacement is not going to happen. Only option I see is keeping and hoping that CPS will be good about this or finding a new one from another store, buying and then returning the one I have to BH. Who's to say that another new one wouldn't give me more issues than this one though? Does anyone even know of a reputable dealer that has a recent shipment in with 1 to spare?
So what would you do? I would have to think that there are many others here in the same position.
