MPA1: Where are the orbs in question? All I see is diminished left/right reflections of the light in the centre of the ball. I'm not sure I would even have noticed that if I had not been searching for it!

Is that what this is all about or is this photo just a bad illustration?

Well make up your mind. First you say where are the orbs and then you say well it's not a real world photo. Maybe you don't understand what trolling is.

Stephen 06: To Hen3yr....

Well done to DPR...yes. But are you seriously thanking Fuji? They released a camera with a seriously flawed sensor, and u are thanking them 4 providing what they should have provided in the camera (a perfectly working sensor) to begin with?...amazing!

U do also realise that if you own the X10 that it's going to be a pain in the butt having to get the sensor fitted? There is the hassle to take it (or post it) to be repaired and also the hassle of being without a camera for a few weeks at least too. I wouldn't thank someone for that.

This must have been the biggest error I have ever seen on behalf of a camera company. They had no other choice than to fix the error. And don't believe for one second that they didn't do it for you and me. Sure they tried a useless firmware first when it was clear to the dogs on the street that it was a hardware problem. They did everything in their power to avoid this.

Well in fairness, if it wasn't for all the 'whining' by people on dpr forums and elsewhere Fuji likely wouldn't have bothered. They were pretty clear at the start of all of this that it was 'within spec', was typical of other cameras. They treated their customers with nothing short of contempt. The sensor was flawed, they tried to dodge it, they failed. Thankfully they've accepted responsibility now and maybe we'll get what promises to be a great camera.
