G1X advice needed - fast!

New Canons having been announced, I have just ordered the camera that has fired my "ultimate" p&s/compact (relative term) camera dreams ever since I started seeing the photos of Marco, Peter, Carolyn et al.*

So what accessories, short of a macro filter which I can't afford right away, would be advised.

I need to order everything asap because I'm leaving Miami for Montreal next Thursday so I want everything here asap.

I've already got these items in my "cart":

• Battery:


• Lensmate G1 X Filter Adapter 58mm

• UV Filter:
B+W 58mm Clear UV Haze with Multi-Resistant Coating (010M)

• Memory Card:


• Lens Cap:

• Hot Shoe Cover (oh the vanity!)
Richard Franiec's No Logo Custom G1 X/G12/G11/G10/G9/G7 Hot Shoe Cover

• David Busch's Book:


Anything missing? (I have a good neoprene wrist strap from my G12).


  • and thanks again to all the photographers on this forum who share their knowledge, enthusiasm and talent.
