Only if that's a money-back guarantee or the store is known to have a
great service department! The problem with in-store warranties is one of
human nature: In-store warranties are an expense and they want to
minimize expense--fix it just well enough so that the warranty expires
before things REALLY go wrong. And will the service person know a thing
about Leicas? If the shop isn't known for great service, I consider the
camera to be AS-IS and will probably pay to have someone else perform
top-notch service on it.
