I think everyone is going to agree here that light scratches on a camera are normal and can't be avoided. You fix these scratches and there will simply be more later to replace them. Think of it like a new car and feel relief that you can now stop worrying about the new camera finish, it's now officially scratched and ready for everyday use. Now you don't have to park the new camera way out in the far parking spaces!
The question is: Why did you buy the camera? I get comments sometimes from other adults when I am on campouts, etc about having my expensive fancy camera out in the elements where it's wet, dirty, hot, etc. My simple answer is that is why I bought the camera, to take a LOT of images. If I start leaving it home, I'll sell it.
Scratches only indicate normal use and wear. Cracks, dents and serious abrasions are another issue entirely. Pray you never have those!It could always be worse... http://iphotonews.blogspot.com/2010/03/world-famous.html
