XT1 same sensor dust issue
5 months ago

I mentioned in a previous XE2 thread about having received several cameras with dust between the sensor protective glass and the sensor resulting in dust spots that couldn't be cleaned off. I finally gave up on the XE2 and went back to using my XE1. When the XT1 became available I decided to give it another go and received the camera today. I decided to test the dust issue with the sensor first thing and unfortunately I found 7 dust spots in this brand new camera. Of course I did both a dry and wet clean but nothing changed, same dust in the same place. I called Fuji customer service and they were sympathetic to the problem but really couldn't offer a solution other than sending it back and trying another camera body. I'll be sending it back this week but I can't say I'm confident that a new body won't have the same issue, very frustrating.
