Lens debris defect DMC-ZS9
5 months ago
I bought two of these wonderful little cameras a year ago. One of them started to show debris in the lens. They looked like blurry threads.. I sent it in and they cleaned it under warranty. Now just three months later, both of my ZS9s have debris in the lens, spots, particles and threads. If I tap the camera, they move around. If I zoom, they go in and out of focus.
Sad to say I recommended the camera to several friends who bought it. Now , one of them reports that his camera has developed debris in the lens. He sent it in for repair. Now a few months later, he has more debris.
I wonder if others have found this problem. I am about to suggest that the cameras be recalled. A one time fix of the camera does not work. The junk in the lens returns. Something is falling apart inside the lens elements.
Have others found this problem? Thanks.
