Facts

1. Stray light influencing camera exposure is a serious problem.

2. It is a fortunate coincidence, that the intensity of this problem is so low, that in most of the time most of the photographers will not be affected by it.

3. This problem really exists, it is well defined and repeatable, as is has been already shown by numerous people. This is a flaw of the camera.

4. Manufacturer of a flawed product have to do one of the following - repair the flaw or warn customers about it, explain how it can affect them etc. When they do not do it, they face legal consequences.

5. When the repair is doable (and easy), manufacturer is motivated to repair it rather than warning customers about it, because it would cause doubts about their competence in making quality products and would affect sales.
