The CANON web site has admitted that there was a mechanical lens flaw in a series of Powershot S100 cameras. They even listed the serial numbers of the flawed run. S/N starting with 29xxx through 41xxx. This is my second S100; the first is S/N 46xxx and is a dream to use. Ordered a second; it arrived; lens error; S/N 41xxxx.

I ordered one on Black Friday and got serial number 48xxx. I haven't heard of anyone getting serial numbers in the effected range recently.

Was $229 on Black Friday. Still a good price for a great camera.
From the last time I looked at it, the lens issue is 100% covered by Canon even out of warranty. The worst consequence you could possibly suffer is sending it in for repair. The reason these are on sale is to clear out inventory for the newer version, not dump bad product.
Cluster said: mine (BF) is #47xxxxxxxxxx no problems.............. Same with me. By the way, how do you like that case? I've been looking around for one after BF and that's one of the ones I've considered. I'm not sure I particularly like the two-piece construction, but it looks like a nice solid case.

Love the case for the $5 I paid for it. looks and feels like leather ( but isn't ) when the top part is open the top part can easily fall off, the rivet really isn't that strong.when closed there are a total of 3 snap rivets holding it in place. the bottom goes on securely and will protect the camera...

Thanks, I appreciate that! Does it add a lot of bulk? Is it still "pocketable" with the case on?
