Re: G15 Lens Protection (or any lack thereof)

I found my way to this forum by searching to see if anyone else had experienced lens damage on their G15.  I've owned cameras for 40 years now and have never previously had a scratched lens.  But my G15 is scratched, and badly, in that it's a small but deep almost chip-like scratch on the lens.

I have no idea how it happened.  I carry it around my neck, and place it in a padded handbag that contains nothing that it could rub against.

I noticed it when , on reviewing photos on Aperture there was a weird dark mark appearing in some shots (wide angle).  The incident that chipped the lens appear to have occurred sometime when I was out walking through the Olympic Park in London.

The G15 is ruined and I have no idea how/why It happened.
