I'm not aware of that sale with a X-T1 at $650, but the one at Lozeau for $499 was extremely limited (10 for the whole Canada), but I think it's fair to consider a brand new X-T1 more in the $800-1000 range, even though, as of right now, it cost more than $1000 at all the Canadian stores that sell it.

I just wonder what will become of its weather resistant feature after the repair. Will it still be or not?

Personally, I'll get it repair. The used market for it, in my city, is around $600. You can use it for a while and sell it later and not lose a dollar VS having a paper weight.
Thanks for the feedback. For $478, I think I will repair it given if only to have as a spare X mount body and one I don't care about tossing about ("winter beater" body.)

Shopping around and found this sale at BH, which seems like a good deal:

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/ ... amera.html

US$1200 for X-T20, XC 16-50mm and XC 50-230mm lenses, and genuine Fuji grip.

I don't really need the 16-50 (have the 18-55 from the X-T1) but the "cheapo" long zoom is something I don't have now and rarely need but would be nice to have.

Any thoughts on this deal?
I've got a pretty good friend who's seen me at my worst.
He don't care if I'm a blessing or a curse,
But he always shows up when the chips are down.
That's the kind of friend I like to be around.

I think it's a good deal if you need a zoom lens. I just checked at Henrys and with only the body + the 50-230mm lens + tax (I'm in QC so I just have to pay the GST which is 5%, when shopping at Henrys or any Canadian shop outside of QC) it gives me a grand total of $1732.5 VS BH with both lenses and metal hand grip give a total of $1729 CAD. So it is like you get the 16-50 and hand grip in extra in exchange of the warranty. You won't have it in Canada so see if it's important to you specially that you know around how much it costs to repair a Fujifilm product.

In my case, both lenses and hand grip aren't for me so I'll not personally jump on a BH deal, but hopefully it's what you want.

Aden was able/willing to almost match the BH price (within $50) but for now I decided to have the X-T1 repaired, and picked up a used mint condition X-M1 body from Kijiji for $160 as an X-system backup.

Not sure if it's been posted, but Fuji is rumoured to be having a sale soon
Sale is on . but not much of a sale.

It's unfortunate how much Fuji lens prices have increased from last year. These are quotes I received in March 2016, when the CAD dollar was lower
XT2 body + XF 35mm f2WR + XF 55-200 $2835
XT2 + XF35mm f2WR + XF 18-135 $2925.00
X-T2 + XF 18-55mm + XF 90mm $3100.00
X-T2 + XF 16-55mm $2890.00
X-T2 + XF 16-55mm + XF 90mm $3725
