Stuck RX-100 lens cover.
Jul 16, 2013

Seven months ago owenleve posted the following comment about the RX-100:

"I already had to return one because the lens cover stopped working after about a week and was stuck open. I think the design is poor for something you are going to stick in your pocket and have ZERO doubt this will fail again and be the achilles heal of this camera."

I've had mine about a ten months now and the lens cover is sticking badly. The camera itself is awesome and I carry it with me everywhere... that's the problem, I guess. So the question is:

What can be done about this? Is there a fix, or must we spend about $700 once a year for this awesome camera? (I assume Sony doesn't want it back after 10 months.)
