There is a quite a big commotion regarding the G2 having cracks, hairline or otherwise over at dpreview. I have yet to check for the cracks as I'm still at work. Many have complained that the G2 plastic cover cannot withstand the weight of the whole camera.

For photo details, refer to the following thread:

For the complaints, refer to the following:

Looking at the dpreview's forum poll, the ratio is about 1:2.
That's a lot!

Sorry, to quote myself:D

No cracks after detailed investigation. Phew, thank goodness:)

not the whole case, the front part is $45, LCD panel $15, Side (where digital in/out and DC in) $10, rear part $40

So if u got the champagne color, got option to change it to black later for around $100.. the buttom and dial remain silver but still looks nice
