I have had my GM-1 for a little over a week and am very happy so far. I don't know if I have anything to contribute outside of the many reviews but one question I have and have not seen much talk about is how you keep track of your lens cap? They are so small and I have already had a couple of times where I had to keep looking around to find mine.

I know there are lots of lens cap systems out there so I'm curious what folks have decided to use for the smaller cameras like the GM-1.

I'm usually really good at keeping track of things, except lens caps. For a while I used a pocket, but it was a different pocket every time, or so it seemed, which drove me nuts. Then I found a cool impulse buy thing at B&H, a HÜFA Lens Cap Clip that clips on my camera strap. (I tape it in place with electrical tape, too).

I always replace original lens caps with El Cheapo caps, just in case, too.
