Sony RX100 III Issues
Jun 18, 2014

I'm pleased with the camera which arrived on Monday.

But very occasionally - and currently that's around 1 in 100 times at most - the lens protection leaves don't fully open or sometimes don't fully close ( very small gap between the leaves )

The lens protector not opening has only happened twice so far in 2 days of frequent on/offs ( the not totally closed happened a few more times  but still rare ).

Has any one else had this issue?

Also in the RX100 mark 1 the lens protector was silent - whereas in the Mark 3 its got a distinctive click when turning on or off - almost like a lens shutter click!

I'm considering it returning it - I bought from Sony Europe online - but concerned if I say there's a fault they'll try on/off 10 times and it will probably be fine!     I've been trying myself and unable to replicate the fault a 3rd time despite quite a few on/offs.

Any advice appreciated
