I bought a Sony Cybershot DCS-P150 but took it back to store after a few\nweeks because the paint had started to flake off the plastic body in\nsome high-wear places, such as the on/off button, exposing a junky white\nplastic body beneath. This is totally unacceptable in a camera costing\nthis much! Twenty years ago I bought a Pentax SLR for 0 and it was\nconstructed so well (of metal with engraved markings) that today it\nstill looks mint, despite a lot of use. These days manufacturers expect\nyou to pay as much or more and deliver chrome-painted plastic trash,\nwith the markings painted on too.\n\nI might add that at my local Best Buy, this camera's on/off switch was\nalso denuded of paint in an area, and to make matters worse, it would\nnot function! The assistant at the store said it was a junky product,\nand I had to agree.\n\nSony, you've lost a digicam customer.
