Lucky you had the problem before the warranty was up. Stuck lens covers seem to be a general problem with all makes.

I have to say that the mechanics and optics on the WB850F do seem very good and are just let down by the poor firmware/software.

The lens on the WB650 did also seem good except that I did have it replaced under warranty about two weeks before the 12 months was up. It had the problem with the stuck lens cover that others seem to be currently experiencing.

It is interesting to read the comments about conflict between marketing and development depts. in large companies. Beta testing can not have happened on the WB850F as the problems are hard to miss.
