Do the Fuji cameras really need service that often, and where can you get them serviced here in the States?
not true, it's easy to find them from japan on ebay to worry. I've had 3 and none had issues whatsoever. Some do develop light curtain problems, which don't really affect its uses if not changing lenses mid-roll.
