i've had my fz20 now for two years, and though it's in perfect condition (except for the obvious scuffs on the bottom of its silver case), i think it's time to send it off for some preventive maintenance. i got an unsolicited offer from somewhere just after i bought the camera, but that's long gone. does anyone have any good recommendations so i don't have to try to live without my panny for too long?

I have to agree with AL_E_ on this one. The potential for new problems will increase as soon as it is packed and in the mail. Why invite trouble !

hmmm, you guys have a good point. ok, what's the possibility of a local camera shop (i'm not sure what their digital camera expertise is) being able to clean it? that way it wouldn't get jostled through the mail.

i was reading some camera tips on cnet.com this morning is what got me thinking about it.

edit: ok, it seems you guys are exactly correct. i just called a camera shop, and the guy said 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. that's good enough for me.

no problems with the camera whatsoever. even the rubber thumb thingy is intact. the cnet article got me thinking a professional cleaning might be a means of preventative maintenance. however, i've abandoned all thought of having it done now. thanks everyone for your responses. fz20s rock.
