Well, I have E-P5 and after vacation I got VF-4 developed greenish-yellowish blobs (spots).

Had it send for warranty repair. Had no idea it is known problem.

As someone else said, remember when you used to burn leaves and toy soldiers with a magnifying glass?

Well... Think about the consequences of what's going on when your shooting with heavily magnified glass of a telephoto lens which is basically a magnifying glass with even stronger optics. What do you expect?

Digital cameras used to come with a warning that you could burn out the sensor by shooting directly into the sun.
