Are you having the "image retention" issue on your Retina MacBook Pro?

I've had mine for a few months now and never really noticed it because it's mostly hooked up to 2 other monitors, so the retina display was a secondary one for me, but I was working in India for 2 months and I started to notice the "ghosting". I looked it up on the internet and it seems like a lot of people are having the same problem, and the correct term was "image retention". I can recreate the issue 1 minute, so it's quite a problem. I'm a photographer, and in my country my 2.6ghz model sells for $3465, so i was a bit irritated that I'd paid so much for a computer that has such a glaring issue.

The service centre said that they would order a new display assembly for me though.

What are your experiences? Is there anybody not experiencing this issue?

Get the new display. Some of the early retina displays had this issue from a certain supplier. If you can still get it done under warranty do it. As far as I know They have resolved the issues with that supplier.
