Tea:I don’t think you’re being unreasonable or childish at all. It’s a perfectly sensible request. Just out of curiosity, what are the alternatives you have discussed? My only suggestion is to make a big alphabet chart and get the baby to point out their favourite letters. That way they’ll get a unique name, and won’t have anyone to blame but themselves when their classmates can’t pronounce Dlghd Fdkghdf.
My X100 got the same problem – I’ve just had it repaired by Fuji UK. Unbelievably good service – they supplied prepaid packaging, and the camera was sent Tuesday afternoon and returned Thursday morning, complete with new lens assembly. It was out of my hands for less than 48 hours, and now works just like new.
