I just purchased an X2 off of ebay (though it hasn't arrived yet). However, being proactive, and seemingly recalling something about damage resulting from turning on an X (maybe it was an X1) without first removing the cap, I thought I should inquire.
I still have an old panasonic Lx3 that I've put through the wringer, and many, many times I've turned it on without remembering to remove the cap first. It simply beeps and reminds me that I need to remove the cap.
Do I need to be extra careful in this regard with X2? Is there a danger with potential damage to the lens helicoid mechanism?
Thanks in advance.
