...above ambient, that is?  I was tinkering with some settings today and saw that if I have the fan off then the camera tends to get 8-10 °F warmer than ambient temperature and I don't think I've noticed it before?  Normal?

Yes, that's normal. I used to do a lot of imaging with uncooled cameras and they always ran warm. That's heat from the electronics, particularly the amplifier.
