With original DP I have read too many posts about lens not extending due to worn ribbon cable (design flaw). Probably it were fixed in later batches as many people just use their DPs but some, like me, have installed cable to short circuit and keep lens extended permanently. It makes DP less compact but I rather have less compact camera than go through them like napkins. Cable were (is?) sold by Chinese guy for about $24, on expensive side, but my sleep is well worth it.
