Thank you, Wayne. I think I will end up with a few bags over time...I will regard the EVF as a perm fixture also.
The case issue - I would love to be able to use a QR plate as well as some form of case, either the minimalist Gariz (not bad price on auction site) or something less chubby than whatever Luigi turns out. Just some basic protection against knocks. Some of the small minibags look pretty good for general transport for one camera usage, like the Lowepro Apex 110 AW, which should take the camera plus EVF with room for batts, CR, lens cloth, etc.
Came across a left field idea for a lens hood which I will try - a 49mm to 37mm step down ring. The idea being to be able to grab it intact and ready to go, then place it back in the bag.
A lot of experienced folks are getting interested in the RX1, looking hard at it, in fault-finding mode mostly. Here is a pretty good summation, echoing the notion of it as a superb allrounder:
'Yeah, the IQ is the thing with the RX1. I didn't want or expect to like the RX1 nearly as much as I do and now I'm probably gonna buy it when my review period is up. If I was still looking for a street camera and was OK with 35mm, I'd probably still pick the X100s with that application at the front of my mind.
But, as noted, I've really got that street angle well covered in my kit. But as an amazing all around 35mm with IQ to die for, particularly in low light (which matters quite a lot to me), the RX1 is unbeatable. And it'll do street well enough!'
People will basically look over the camera, find likes and dislikes, then they look at the output...
