Has anyone had problems with getting dust/lint under the lens? My two older ZS models got so bad I can't use them.

We've had this problem as well. Watching this fabulous video has allowed us to fix them all!

Len's of my ZS7 were always dusty when I carried it bare in the pocket. Cleaning helped so long but eventually the inside was dirty. I tried to clean it inside, but the UV filter slipped and and teh dust still shows.
I bought ZS20 and now carry it inside a case. Almost no dust on the lenses.

I have had three lumix cameras with this problem. will attempt the fix in the youtube video listed here. Otherwise the Lumix is a great line, awesome pics, great features, for a great price. no problems with freezing up like my Nikon s9100.

My Leica V Lux 20, a much more expensive version of the same camera, has the same problem. My most recent camera got dust in it when it was only three months old. I'm thinking of getting the Panasonic Lumix just because it's less expensive and more like a disposable camera.

I returned mine with the same problem. Engineering fault. Didn't get another because I didn't want to go thru the hassle again. No more Panasonic cameras for me.

I have had 3 ZX cameras and every one of them ultimately was ruined by dust. For the price and the quality I now just think of them as throw aways and hope I get 2 years service from them. $8 a month and be careful on the beach.

I have also had 2 panasonic/Lumix point and shoot with "dust in between the lenses". The 2nd camera is less than 2 years old. I'm otherwise a Lumix fan getting much better than average point and shoot results. The IS is probably the best in the industry, and that saves a lot of low light photos that would otherwise be … see more I have also had 2 panasonic/Lumix point and shoot with "dust in between the lenses".
