Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster A bit of background first. In early January this year I have decided to graduate from an ancient Canon A530 point&shoot, and after some digging and researching I bought the Nex F3, as it was the only camera in the NEX lineup I could afford at the time. Overall I'm very pleased with my shiny (still new) camera, and some issues aside (I thought I could handle the lack of a viewfinder, slow AF, expensive lens selection) I think I made the right choice. However, fast forward a few months and about 10k shots later, and I'm beginning to think my F3 is way to fragile for its own good. 2 issues. 1. After attaching the camera to the neck strap and taking shots the whole day I realized that I have scratched my screen in multiple locations due to the camera constantly touching one of my shirt's buttons as I wandered around. The screen is literally covered in scratches: none of them are deep, in fact they're all very shallow, but I can see them and they drive me nuts. Granted, I should have thought of the possibility of having my screen touch one of the buttons, but then again, most DSLRs point DOWN when hanging from the neck strap; not this one. 2. The kit lens attracts dust like it's been design to do it. Now I have several dust spots UNDER the lens, and they show up in pictures, especially when the spot corresponds to blue skies in the shot. Again, it's driving me nuts. I know the lens "breathes" when it zooms, but still, very annoying. Questions: Is there any way to get rid of the dust in the lens without sending it to Sony and having no camera for the duration, as it's the only lens I have right now ? Any reliable "DYI" solutions to get rid of the scratches on my LCD screen ? I have found some stuff on the internet (dedicated sprays, toothpaste or vaseline methods) but all of them have comments stating it will only aggravate the issue. Has anyone attempted to fix scratches on their NEX LCD screen ? Thank you !
