Fuji X-T1 light leak repair update

Fujifilm Support in the USA now has an announcement regarding the X-T1 light leak issue with mention of the serial numbers affected:

"...the 'flare effect' is only applicable with a limited number of early produced X-T1 cameras. More recently produced X-T1 cameras have already been modified, so if you are an owner of an X-T1 camera bearing a serial number of 41A05201 or higher, there is no need to be concerned about this issue." 

In case you missed my original blog post on this issue, this is how the light leak will appear in your images when the side door is left open on the X-T1 and a strong light is allowed to enter through the HDMI and microphone ports.
I recently spoke with Fujifilm USA repair center in New Jersey. Now that the fix has been announced, they will take your name, email, and X-T1 serial number and notify you by email within a few days when they are ready for your to send in your X-T1 for repair.  Give them a call at: 1-800-800-3854. The repair is expected to take about a week to complete.
