S95 - Lots of "Lens Errors" / E18 Error?
Aug 29, 2011

I'm trying to decide between the S95 and the SX230hs, it seems as if it's universally agreed that the S95 takes better pictures in low light and standard light.

The one thing holding me back from getting the S95 is the number of people who have had the Lens Error or E18 errors, versus zero as far as I've read on the SX230hs. Does anyone know why that is? I may even go with the SX230hs out of peace of mind because when I'm in Venice or Rome, if I get a lens error I'd lose it on Canon for ruining memories of my vacation. I baby my electronics, and so have lots of the people who have had those errors.

If you look at the amazon.com user comments of the S95 and SX230 there are 20 coment threads for S95 lens erors, and apparently website(s) on that error.

Is that error just blown out of proportion, or does the S95 really seem to have a large number of lens erorrs?

Thanks for any/all comments.
P.
