I own an X-T1. I have tried and tried and tried to reproduce this issue and cannot, not even a little bit. I have sensor dust and a hot pixel and some amp glow at ISO 6400, but I cannot provoke a light leak. I tried from all ports, starting right on top of them and moving back, from nearly a parallel angle to directly perpendicular, side to side, shaking the light, with the screen out, with the screen in, through the battery door ... nothing. Not even a glimmer.

Please. I would really like to know if this is a QC or a design issue. The flashlight was only used to illustrate the problem. It is not the problem. The problem results in this:
