AbrasiveReducer: If the lens extension mechanism is really sturdy like the X10, it will be nice to have a lens that (ahem) stays rigid and aligned when extended. Apologies for the X-rated comment, but one of several things I didn't like aobut the RX100 was the way the lens wobbled. Not encouraging, and not likely to get better after the lens extends and collapses a few thousand times.
You are right on about the RX100. I had one for less than 2 weeks and had shot less than 200 images, when I noticed a couple of drag marks on the largest lens barrel. In addition, there was a very small deposit of what appeared to be lubricant. I returned it, and as much as I enjoyed it, I can't bring myself to try another one.
Jens_G: Have they finally fixed the lens mechanism issue?
Apparently. The product information on Amazon states that the lens is "Newly engineered specifically for the PowerShot S110".
Yod: Same sensor,same lens and Probaly the SAME LENS ERROR MESSAGE.Best wishes.Yod
