I would think this is a must whether overheating is fixed or not. This overheat issue needs to be resolved before people part with their dollars. If they can't wait then find another camera.

It will be interesting whether a firmware update is released (assuming it can be fixed with one) as was done for a banding issue in the HS10 (V 1.03) that was only installed on cameras that were returned. There are likely many cameras that never got that fix.

Unlike other bugs (such as the powered off battery drain problem that some F550's have) which Fuji denies being aware of, the HS20's overheating is acknowledged, but Fuji has apparently instructed its tech support staff to say "overheating isn't an issue, just turn the camera off for a minute at most and then turn it back on". This doesn't bode well for anyone expecting a firmware fix. If there is one though, it may have consequences such as reduced operating speed.
