For what it's worth, I too had excellent, Way above the call of duty service from Sony Laredo. My NEX6 broke under warranty and it seemed like they replaced Everything inside of it, then, they sent it back to me in India free of charge via FedEx which must have cost them $50 minimum (woulda cost a 'civilian' over $100 to send it that way). THEN after Indian Customs rejected it (don't ask, it's a long sad story), Sony picked up the FedEx tab to return it to the USA, AND the shipping to a friend who eventually brought it back over here for me! WOW! I love to sing praises to the Sony Service Center, as they deserve it, and also it seems that Sony gets ragged on too much, too often.

My display on the RX1 is showing cloudy if power is off - sony berlin rejected any repair cost for a new display which cost abt €80 so far for a 2 1/2 Year old camera. The repair service told me that sonys display is a trashy one and is not the first time to be a need of repair on Sonys RX1

The repair shop may be correct, but in 2.5 years of using an RX1 and following the RX1 on various forums, this is the first I've heard that the display on the RX1 is trashy and commonly in need of repair.

One of the reasons that I sold my NEX5n was the screen. The protective coating started to peel off after a few months. Sony repaired it quickly and for free but I didn't want it to happen again.
