P7700: the ribbed lens ring - what is it about?
Oct 5, 2012

I am seriously considering P7700 to replace my Canon A650IS as a take-everywhere camera (D5000 is my regular camera) and I cannot find any info regarding the "ribbed" thingie surrounding the lens on P7700. Does it serve any purpose or is it there just for the looks? I know it is not a focus ring. I checked the manual which mentions a "lens ring" which is to be removed before attaching step-up rings, but that's all. I am not even sure it is the same thing - impossible to tell from the picture.

So, does anybody know what it is? Thanks.
