Yes it gets very hot sometimes. There is an "air" gap insulating the memory & battery from the rest of the body so that the sensor isn't affected by the heat generated.

Mine certainly warms up (I would call it hot), especially when shooting for a long period and on hot days. You can hear the fan spinning to try and cool it. If you put it in a cover make sure you give it room around the gap so it can get some cooling.

Make sure you shut down the camera before bagging it!

I made this mistake on one of my first shoots and it overheated (with a warning) sending me into a panic. I put the EX1 aside and grabbed my FX1. In a couple of minutes the EX was fine.
