If the seal was broken, then it was definitely opened already. Would send it back immediately. They've ripped you off and sent you a return. Just came at home with 278q and there are seals from both sides of the box - not broken. Will report back how it is like.

Edit: Also, yes, it is indeed over exposed and look nothing like it in person.
Yes, definitely, right top is bleed but not a big one. Camera exaggerates like crazy. You could try to take short video and make a screenshot from it. It will be closer to reality. Btw, just arrived at home with 278q, will post some impressions later. First good thing is that seals are not broken...
Btw, does anybody know how I can find manufacturing date?
