Nikon's S4 was on my short list for an all-purpose traveling camera until my buddy bought one. He picked it up a few days before a big backpacking trip, but the day before he was to leave, It stopped taking pictures. All that would show on the display was "Lens Error." He was back at the camera store the morning he should have been driving over the mountains, and they swapped it happily. The second one died while he was testing it at the store counter.
He shelled out a little more money for the Coolpix P4. It doesn't have the long zoom of the S4, but he likes it and brought home beautiful pics with great color.
Anyone know what "lens error" means? I'd be tempted to think it might mean his batteries came out of the box with too little charge to move the lens motor, but he had bought spare batteries, and I'm sure he charged them all and tried them all before driving an hour back to the store.
