Re: X-S1 and blue smudge

I've read about orbs and I've read about blue patches. Try as I might, bright reflections, lights, f11 etc. I've not found any problem in 400 shots.

However, although I've no real intention to use the video option I thought I would give it a try. Guess what, a blue centre appeared in the shot whenever the camera was facing into the light. I tried a still shot looking in the same direction with no trace of a blue centre. I always use a UV filter. Is that likely to be relevant to these issues?
