I've just got a new (to me) G2. I notice that when the camera is off, the frame counter LCD still illuminates as well as other LCD if set to DX film.

Is it me, or do you think that the prevelence of G1's and G2's with LCD bleed is a result of this 'always on feature'? Thankfully mine has no issues w it.

I will be sure to keep mine w/o batteries while not in use to not promote the degradation of the LCD.

I know it is always good practice to remove batteries after a shoot anyway regardless of camera brand/model; but this just convinced me further to do such immediately post get home.

You other G folks do same and think that the preponderance of G's with LCD bleed were kept for a while in a camera bag in off position?
