WG-3 Can I replace the lens cover?


I'm very pleased with the quality of my macro shots with my WG-3 camera . I've had it just over a year, but recently I've found that it has quite a difficult time focusing on close objects. The glass over the lens (which I'm assuming is a cover), now has quite a few fine scratches through wear and tear. I want to know if I can replace this part. I see that there are screws around it, but I can't seem to find anywhere online that says this is possible or any places where I could buy one if it is.

Any advise would be appreciated!

A service center can replace it for you. The part is otherwise not available and not designed to be a DIY project, as it would void the warranty.

Hi Adam,

Thank you very much for your reply.
Would you happen know where the closest service centre is to Bristol, UK? I've tried Googling it, but I haven't had much luck!

Thanks once again,
