Sounds nice Wayne, I look forward to see them.
Last night I was out with some photography friends and found that I really missed a VF, because it was hard to keep the camera steady without one. With 5D + 35mm I can relatively easily get sharp shots at 1/20, but with RX1 I sometimes get motion blur even at 1/50. That should improve with a EVF, but perhaps not to the level of 5D because I think the Canon's weight makes it easier to keep it steady.
I got to try a NEX 6 with Zeiss 24/1.8. I think I read that its EVF is similar to the one for RX1? If that's true I should be happy with it because it seemed great. I didn't notice any lag even in very low light, which has been a big problem with all EVFs I have tried before. Btw. I thought that the NEX was nice, but felt somewhat front heavy with the Zeiss, which is larger than I had imagined.
This is the hood I ordered:
It's the same that many others have bought and people seem happy with it. Not sure if it can be used together with filters though, I forgot to check that. I'll let you know what I think once I have tried it, but I suspect it'll take at least a couple of weeks to get here.
Unfortunately, I haven't heard anything about a wireless remote.
