Long before OIS was invented the firefly problem was known...They just didn't jump like what you get if the OIS is turned off. Most people believe in putting some glass (UV filter...) in front of the camera optics and keep it there all the time. That's the "best" condition to get the problem when shooting dark scenes with some sharp and bright lightsources. Even good wideband multilayer coatings can't fully suppress this internal lightbouncing. In some cases a wide angle adaptor can reduce this effect.

Any volunteers to go out tonight and run an exhaustive test on this subject?

I've done the tests. I've used different brands of filters, different lenses, no filters and the wrong camera for you guys (XL1s). But I'll post my results here on the firefly thread either tomorrow or Monday. I just haven't had time to finish writing it.
