yeah, I don't see getting another known good camera to try as a viable troubleshooting strategy in this case, though I've given consideration to replacing the camera anyway, if I can't clear up the issue with the clouded lens. (Again, not vital, but it's something that bugs me)

With the one on my dashcam, I'd also give consideration to just telling the BCM or APIM to just shut the camera off, so that I don't have to see the annoying message to contact the dealership every time I put the car in reverse.

I hadn't even considered looking for trouble codes. I'm not used to the level of integration that this car has, so my default troubleshooting is the old-fashioned kind. Well, I'll take a peek with Forscan lite. I haven't purchased the extended license for Windows. I have to replace my laptop at some point, then maybe I'll purchase it.
