Hey, thanks. I think we all get that the A6000 isn't a solid metal wonder, but I don't personally care - and always found the hand-wringing over lack of a heavy magnesium alloy casing to be rather amusing.

The cap on the front of my 20mm came with it, and honestly I was initially baffled (I'm a NEX newbie). A quick check showed it's the ALC-SH113, the same anti-glare protective cap you can get on the 30mm Macro, I believe. http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-36245-1.html

I just changed over from an NX300, which is a great camera in many ways, but I wasn't happy with that fit and finish, despite the metal top plate. Good example of a camera looking and feeling cheaper than the sum of its parts (unlike the A6000, IMO).
