I think it's confirmed.

Just received a replacement unit and it has the same corner softness in the upper right corner at 5mm wide-angle. Some softness also in upper left, sharp in both lower corners.

You can reduce the effect by shooting 16:9 since this cuts out the extreme corner.

The fact that some users are experiencing this and others not suggests variability in the manufacturing process, which in itself reflects poorly on Fuji; I'll still keep the F70 since I like it overall, it is just disappointing that Fuji couldn't have sorted this out.

The two units I tested had sequential serial numbers, not sure if that tells us anything. They both started with 9CQ15xxx.
