After the leatherette covering to the SD card slot cover started to come off. It was sent under warranty to my local Panasonic Repair Centre. I’m happy to report that my new G9 is back from hospital after being repaired and all appears to be tickety boo! The engineers report informs me that the SD card door assembly and the rear grip have been replaced! Pleasingly the camera looks like new. And none of my settings has been altered. Now I have to learn to use all over again, not a problem I’m sure it will be a pleasant journey.
