New to RX100 mk3 & handling questions

I finally broke down my resistance & bought a new RX100 mk3. I keep seeing videos saying how pocketable it is. Isn't putting it in a pocket dangerous to the lens cover? It would be so easy to put your finger on it when either putting it in or taking it out of a pocket. That looks risky.

Another concern with carrying it in a pocket it the risk of getting pocket dust in the lens since extending & retracting the lens causes a slight vacuum effect to any dust picked up the the pocket.

Are these valid concerns & is the lens cover stronger than it looks? I've read of Nikon P7000 & P7700 lens covers jamming up & even scratching the lens from touching the cover when closed.
