Not my experience at all.

At the top of the camera, the black paint has worn off the sharp edges to the left of the flash, and running from the flash to the mode dial. I've been carrying black cameras in my pocket for 8 years and this is the worst paint wear I've seen - and that after only three weeks of use.

Also, the LCD glass has a number of scratches which are not visible when the display is in use.

Man, what the heck are you doing with yours?? I managed to grab mine when Sony's online store had them first available, so I've been carrying mine in my front right pants pocket for a good two months now. I have no paint falling off or LCD scratches, just like most every other camera I've carried in my pocket over the past decade.
