Marco - in the last picture where you show a close shot of the lens and "extremely thin" outer glass element, is that "element" actually part of the lens, or more like a protective glass filter ?

Hi Carolyn,

I'm guessing you have already discovered this for yourself now that your camera has arrived.... but the outer element appears to be protective only. It appears to be super thin and might be a replaceable item if people scratch it (makes sense from a repair departments point of view).

I've managed to touch my lens three times with my finger tips and found the flat, outer glass easy to clean up with a soft, new microfiber cloth.

How's the new camera?
