I think your exposure is off a little bit. Many people cannot tell, but I have exceptional eyes

Taking pictures. Yeah with the light "leak" I can change 1/3rd of a stop with the lens cap on, but I don't meter in pitch black anyway. Bright sunlight doesn't effect anything.

As it seems to be a non issue in the real world, and I don't fancy somebody however good they are taking it apart and poking around inside, I will just carry on using it.

It's a great camera enjoy it take photographs!

Considering it irrelevant.

And having an incredible time with the camera.

The people it worries most are those who have not got it and/or don't want it.
