I am considering buying the Fujifilm FinePix XP140, shown here: https://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/xp/finepix_xp140/.
I notice that most other cameras either have some form of lid that can be removed or have a cover that closes automatically when the camera is powered off.
When I tested the camera in the store, I noticed I was able to power on and take a picture must faster than the other point-and-shoots, which I suspect is because it doesn't use any energy to open.
Does this lack of a cover leave the camera vulnerable to all kinds of damage, dust, etc. ruining the lens, including when storing it in a case?
