    Well possibly degrade picture quality but, crafty indeed.
    Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

    I just keep my entire EVO covered in bubble wrap and locked in a room, with a sign that says "Beware of Leopard". It affects ease of use, but it protects it from all danger, both real and imagined.

    Good idea, but I'm not going to do it.

    Good tip. A sufficient case will also raise the lens enough so it does not scratch when laid down on a table.

    This looks like a perfect way to ruin the optics of the lens. No thanks. I'm not into blurry pics.

    A post it note under the battery door and below the lens by about a half of an in, will sufficiently raise the case enough to stop it from resting on the camera lens.

    ...and you won't have image quality degradation. Enjoy.

    i've never heard of this issue, but that looks ghetto. i use the case below, protects the screen and the camera in the back with a raised lip.

    I notice this guy still has the original film covering on his computer keyboard. Also note his mousepad.. A cracked screen. He might just be a little bit obsessive about scratches. What do you think?

    What's the point? If you get your lens scratched it might degrade image quality, you put this stupid mod on, it will also degrade quality.
