I just purchased the Sony W1 from the store. I found that the outer lens had some white specks in the center. The specks are not shiny. They are not reflective when I inspect them with a torch. I tried to wipe them out with a lens cloth with water but they didn't go away.

I thought it's the problem of the lens so I exchanged the camera with another new one. Same problem but this time, the white specks appear near the corner. Tried to wipe them out but didn't help.

Do Sony cameras always have white specks on the lens or I am just not lucky?

Thanks very much

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"My W1 didn't have white specks. I did see on one of these posts though that someone had a W1 with spots on it and it wasn't on the outer part on the lens but had spots on the CCD image sensor. Not sure if that's related.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Go back to the store and make them give you another one and check it there.
