Surprisingly like everyone else, I've had no problem with mine. That said, after reading all the early reviews citing the flimsy and frail cover, I've been treating mine with kid gloves.

Maybe this tells us more about the self appointed review experts, than anything else?

There's very little that can actually go wrong with a rubber door apart from ripping it off. What I find ironic is that the actual issue with the camera is what reviewers remarked as well made, the mode dial. Mine just came off recently.

Yeah, the reviewers really missed the point. Many of K-01's strengths were reported as weaknesses; real weaknesses were missed or reported as strengths..

3+ years, 20000+ snaps, no problem with the rubber flap. Did have to re-attach the dial, though.

The K-01 is an excellent photographic device, too bad so many people are so unnerved by "different" that they equate it with "wrong".

I'll admit, I was one of the people that was worried about the flap early on, there were threads on it. Mine is fine and I'm used to it's use now. I suppose at some future point the rubber will become brittle and break, not sure how many years that will take!
