Just saying....

Is placing a camera in an oven part of NORMAL operation?

No, I didnt think so.

I have the light leak when I shine light directly into the remote/mike jack.. but of course when a device is plugged in there is no leak.  I do long exposures and when I do I use the remote release or I use the timer with the door to that compartment shut.

Is shining a bright LED flashlight in the compartment while shooting NORMAL operation?
Is pointing the camera at the sun with the compartment open while shooting NORMAL operation?
No, I don't think so.

Should it have been caught by Fuji, of course.  
Is this a sensor disaster like the orbs?  No.

Easy fix.. not worth the hysteria seen in this thread.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
