Any one know of a glass camera lens protector? Be nice cause I'd imagine it would be clear enough. My G2 has scratched simply with my finger as I felt my way to the volume buttons. Hate for the same to happen with my G3. Suggestions appreciated.

Does it affect picture quality? At such small aperture (f2.2 I believe) a slightly scratched lens will hardly have an affect on the image. For the same reason, I'd say a plastic/film cut to size for the lens would be sufficient.

This case has a rubber stopper so you can touch the lens while using the volume buttons. I have two of them and it's my favorite case.

I suppose I could live with that. Is that case slippery?

I have this case as well and it feels a little slippery but has better grip than others. Personally I like the tech21 case better since it doesn't add as much bulk.

It's not slippery, the ultra hybrid is slippery. It has good protection and the cut outs are only where they need to be as opposed to a big ugly one line other cases.
