"V1 turning itself on"
So I just discovered an issue with my V1. The slightest bit of movement seems to make it switch on when the 10-30 lens is attached. WIth the other two lenses this behavior does not exhibit (at least for now anyway). I think maybe the switch mechanism inside the lens is the problem. Has anyone else seen this sort of thing? I guess I will need to ship it off for a repair.

I haven't seen that. The on/off switch is pretty sensitive, though. So it's just movement of the lens that causes it to turn on (slight movement)? May be a bad contact pin perhaps. Have you tried carefully cleaning the contact points on the camera and lens with isopropyl alcohol?
