Received my new DP1 - mostly love but that lens cap!
Aug 6, 2009

Finally received my new DP1 by way of a friend in Germany. Initial impressions very positive, first pictures absolutely stunning (quality, not motif) and AF better than its reputation - at least so far.

It works very well with my old GRD external viewfinder with the sad exception that the on/off button is blocked.

Mounted it with Franiec' grip and the cable release adapter that was received in exactly one week - impressive - and can only agree it makes a huge difference.

BUT - what can be done about the lens cap? I have never been a big fan of Sigma lens caps and usually buy Nikons instead for my otherwise wonderful Sigma lenses.

1) Does anybody know of a standard solution that is better than the Sigma supplied lens cap?

2) Does anybody know if somebody makes a plug'n'play solution that allows you to use the Ricoh LC-1 without DIY skills?

All input much appreciated
Cheers,
