  • Product great - into misleading
    Verified Purchase

    I ordered this camera based on the Q&A section that specifically addressed if the lens was removable. This was the type of camera I was shopping for. I purchased it, gave it as a gift, and then found out the owners manual clearly states the lens on this camera cannot be removed. I am in the process of attempting to get a refund, but the erroneous info is still on the product page. Buyer beware..it is a great camera...but per manufacturer specs only 1 lens.
