FS5 Hot Pixel - Anyone else seen it on their cam?

Got my FS5 a week ago. Very happy so far. Ramped up the ISO to around 5000 today to film indoors with the family, and watching back on a LCD noticed a white dot in lower left hand corner. White dot increased in size and travelled down and left when I engaged clear image zoom.

I ran a black balance, then tested a dark scene in basement at 20,000 ISO. Very grainy, but no white dot.

I had similar issues from time to time on my C100, and began to black balance periodically.

Curious if any of you have had similar issues?

I'm returning to Cent. America next week and would prefer to clear up any issues before I leave.

Thanks!

PS - about to buy Wasabi BPU-60 batt. Any idea how long the run the camera (with LCD) continuously?
