Re: s95 excitement and disappointment: quality issues

Thanks for a prompt response, PaulRivers!

Out of curiosity, I've just checked my IXUS 870 (SD880) with vers.req for the information stored and, to my surprise, found the similar "E18" and "Lens retract" record. I might remember that the camera once failed to focus, having retracted its lens automatically... so, probably such (or similar) events are just stored in the internal memory. However, I haven't had any issues with that camera so far...

So, I am wondering whether that "Lens error" message, which my one-week old S95 has, indicates some genuine fault with a camera, or it may appear just due to several unsuccessful attempts to focus under some "severe" conditions (like, trying to focus at "long end" on some not very contrast surface in low light)... Interesting, does any of you / S95 users have such a message despite the camera being working fine?..
