5D mk II, the sun and live view.

Hi!

I've just gotten the new 5D and yesterday I accidentally got the sun in the frame whilst in live view and movie mode. It was not for long, 10-20 seconds or so. Do you think this can damage the sensor?

I know Canon says this in the manual: "During Live View shooting, do not point the camera toward the sun. The sun's heat can damage the camera's internal components."

But after what amount of time do you think? And how can one see any possible damage?

Thanks for your answers!
