Default Dimage Xt/Xg - side door, metal or plastic?

In all the reviews I've seen for the Xt they say the camera case is all metal. What about the door to the card/battery compartment on the side? In pictures it looks metal but I looked at an Xg at the store and the door appeared to be plastic and felt flimsy. Am I correct that this is a plastic door? And if so, did the Xt also have a plastic door? Xt/Xg owners, how do you feel about the construction of this door in general? Thanks.

I've had a Dimage X, Xi, and now XT

I've seen the dor of an XG in the store and I reckon the door looks stronger then ever it seem to be reinforced on the inside and the plastic dividing the battery and SD card looks slightly thicker.

I have to admit that the Bat/Card catch is quite flimsy & vey lose whe open & closed & even tho its got a metal finish i recon its plastic as it so light & dosnt feel cold to the touch

You can definatly see where they saved money on the latest X model
