Thanks for your comments thus far - Appreciate them all.

I understand that the internet has an influence however the warmth scenario verging on very warm is in my opinion disconcerting. It's the only camera that I've ever owned which produces a somewhat toasty warm feeling on the rear of the device. Perhaps it's something that we're expected to live with on the basis that in general , cameras circuit board hardware is getting increasingingly complex thereby putting more pressure on the batteries and inner workings of the camera. If that is the case then manufacturers should be attempting to solve the heat issues. Don't get me wrong - I love Fuji products but this is disappointing.

I found it disconcerting too. I wasn't used to cameras feeling that warm in the thumb rest area.

I decided to install the latest firmware and shot it in the most demanding way I could in a hot kitchen in the middle of summer. The camera got pretty toasty but not hot enough to trigger either of the overheating warnings. I knew I'd never push it any further than that in the course of my regular shooting (I'm not a video shooter), so was happy to buy a thumb grip and move on! Suffice it to say I haven't noticed it since.
