    What's the minimum thinness you can go with but still have the camera not stick out? 0.3mm? 0.4?

    0.5mm it seems since SGP's air skin is 0.mm and camera is not flush.

    Looks like 0.8 to 1mm in order to be safe.

    I will say, though, that I have a Spigen Air Skin case that is 0.4mm. The camera still protrudes, but it doesn't really wobble on a flat surface. I also don't really worry about it scratching, because it's sapphire, so it would take diamonds to scratch the lens.

    So now the question is which cases fall into this range? I feel like cases go from super thin to very bulky very quickly.

    there is a ROCK 0.8mm case that will keep the camera lens off the table. they also have a 0.6mm version that does not, so make sure you are looking at the right one.

    Does Rock make cases for the Plus? I'm not finding any.

    This is interesting because I reached out to switcheasy support regarding the nude case for iphone 6 which is apparently 0.6mm thick
    http://www.switcheasy.com/product/NUDE-for-iPhone-6

    And I was told the following:
    Hello,
    yes, the NUDE does give protection for the camera lens.
    Thank you for your support and patience so I could make it sure!

    I'm hoping someone on the forums who has purchased this case will share once they receive it but I believe they just started shipping recently.

    I think it might still stick out slightly. When you're talking a difference of 0.9 mm or something, it might visually LOOK like it's not, to the guy who responded, but if the specs are correct, it probably does.
