Re: How Prevalent is the G11 Lens Scratch Problem?

Good points all. I think they can do better. I hope the problem doesn't happen on the G15 and moving forward. I seem to be one of the few on the forum who prefer a normal lens cap. Over the years I have posted on the DPR the observation that if you visit any box store with cameras displayed the first things to break on the sample cameras are the auto lens covers. On small P+S cameras like the S90 an auto lens cover is handy but on some size lens from the G11 size on up I would prefer a regular cap. The LX3, Leica X1 and G1X have traditional lens covers and for cameras that size I prefer it.

Good to see an old thread revived as this has always been a subject of interest out here.
