Lens Reliability Issues

This is the fifth or sixth Canon camera I have owned. I bought it for its small size, reasonable (8x) optical zoom, and Canon image quality. Sad to say this has been an absolutely horrible camera. I bought the camera before an extended vacation. On day four the lens got stuck in the zoomed out position, I received the "lens error" message, and the camera was useless. Sent it back to Canon when I got home, received a new replacement, and on the second day of use had the same problem. Lens error, camera useless. Sent that back to Canon and received a refurbished one, which I promptly put in my "sell at the next garage sale box." Very disappointing performance from what used to be my to-to brand
