I'm considering an E550 but I read two reviews were
concerns were expressed about the mechanical design
of the E550's pop up flash. I've checked out an E510
at my local Staples (that's all they had in stock) and I must
say that the flash does not appear to be very sturdy:
If you don't push it back in "dead center", it retracts in
a crooked manner (but will lock properly). Anyway, I
would appreciate real life experience from you folks.

Thanks in advance!

I have an e550, and I read the same review you did. Just for test I have intentional pushed it on the side, and quickly, and no matter what, it has never jammed or failed to work. I pop it up and down a lot, and even thoughit may appear filmzy, I haven't had any issues with it, and I'm not really cautious about the flash, as long as you don't pull on it, or hit it hard against something, it should be fine.
