Dave, I have learned from the threads here...

about the simple ways to help minimize the risk of this, so I'm not too worried. I have read several stories of faulty cameras in regards to focusing issues and areas of bluriness indicating a flawed unit. In fairness, I understand that this is something that occurs with most cameras from most manufacturers... so I just wondered what sort of service Casio has offered when someone did need to send a unit in for replacement or repair. I hope it didn't sound as though I expected to have an issue, I think the lens error thing may have been a bit overblown anyway.

Lens error is a defense mechanism of this camera and some others to
something blocking the lens from sticking out. If you hold your
finger in front of the lens and turn the camera on, you'll get the
lens error everytime. Same with turning it on inside a case or
pocket. The lens stops coming out and the lens error message
appears on the LCD. Turning the camera off then on gets things back
to normal.

Getting a lens error isn't a worry. Complications resulting in
some cases is the only worry. A small minority of people have had
focusing problems afterward. I've had two lens error messages
happen to me from my fingers blocking the lens and no complications
so far.
