Bought this camera in January 2008. Always looked after it in the case and never dropped it. Had the lens fail on this camera 3 times and had it repaired 3 times. Could not get a replacement. Thought I was on a good wicket when I bought this camera, but obviously not.

Bought mine 1 year ago.It has developed serious focussing problems in all lighting conditions and I have returned it to my UK supplier under their 2-year warranty. It has been sent on to Canon for repair but I don't have much confidence that the repair will be permanent as I have read of other owners with the same problem. Have advised the supplier that if it fails again after repair I will be seeking a full refund or replacement with the later updated 870 is model. Will report back!

Bought in September 2008, and it has been faultless - a great little camera for travel. Good lens, tough body, small size, fast switch on. The capacity to do some basic manipulation of images (Vivid, Sepia etc) in-camera is fun.

Reporting back a year after the focus problems with my 860is and have to say that this gem of a compact has behaved perfectly ever since the repair. I have 2 other more versatile, but bulky, long-zoom cameras but this one lives permanently in my car ready for that once-only chance shot!
