G10 lens scratches
May 16, 2012

I have a G10 that I am very pleased with in addition to my 50D. The only problem is that the retracting lens cover scratches my lens as it has on the Canon G Series cameras of others. The scratches are serious and noticably effect the image quality in some shooting situations.

I like the camera very much, but take it with me much less than I used to. I can't sell it and local Canon wants half the value of the camera for repair with no promise that it won't happen again. They will not take responsibility for the problem or admit to a design defect.

I understand that the same problem exists with the G9. Has anybody experienced this problem with the G11 or G12? I hate to junk the series due to Canon's lack of responsible design.
Thanks,
Mo
