That $7.19 hood look terrific, what a fix, what a price, haha.
I am with dovey..you see a lot of good work out there over the years, but very few cameras/ 35mm FL lenses can so casually roll out RX1 standard work, it's a very capable device indeed. The tiny size means it captures a lot of shots that would be otherwise missed, and the level of versatility is near unbeatable, as it does justice to such diverse subject matter.
I hope the side cast is a firmware fix issue, it seems like there is a workaround, good.
Way back early on, there was a meme developing that the camera was really just good at close focal distances...here is a link to a large jpeg of a distant landscape:
Also saw a tripod shot by Martin on the image thread, which was excellent - leaf shuttered light cameras make very low demands on tripods, as seen there. It seems to surprise experienced users in an absolute sense, so it's not: 'it's great for a small camera' but rather 'look what it can do!'.
I am also starting to think they will find it hard to make other lenses in the RX1 form factor, what with the unique rear element, and I wonder what the implied registration distance is?
