:evil:I have had a fuji finepix S5000 from new and have been plagued with black shadows on the top right and left of my photos. I have to remove these with paintshop pro. I sent the camera to Fuji and they replaced the lens for £95. It appears that the engineers do not understand quality control and the problem is still apparent. It appears that the lens mostly on wide angle is picking up the edge of the lens barrel.
I have the impression this is an inherant problem with the camera lens and thus would not trust the problem appearing on the S9500, perhaps I should look elsewhere as every photo has to be touched up to remove the unsightly dark patches.
