You're right .... attaching the very fiddly strap is the most challenging part of MX-1 ownership! I find the big swinging lens cap equally annoying when the cam is meant to be discrete ...

Battery life is only reasonable I find, unless power saving is switched on to max, so yesterday I ordered a spare from Amazon, which is claimed to be the equivalent. By the way the battery from the Ricoh GRD / GX200 series doesn't fit, as it has a different notch, which is a pity, as I have loads of those sitting around.

I'd be very interested to hear how you find your LX5 compares with the MX-1 ...
