Having just purchased the X10 this week, and not having received it yet, I talked to the Fuji Repair division in NJ USA this morning about the ORB and Blooming issues. They said that all the cameras still under warranty, which should include all X10, since released in Aug. will be repaired free of charge, but we pay the shipping to them for the X10 repairs. The repair person said they will replace the whole sensor, and may include the lens module, although they are not sure about that yet. But at the least, the Sensor will be replaced free, less the shipping. This is very good news for all of us with the X10, and Fuji is to be commended for doing the right thing here. So I am looking forward to shooting with the New X10 and will send in the camera for the Sensor repair in may or june when the sensors arrive at Fuji NJ.USA Thanks Dennis.
