They are not yet available and even the standard Sony 49mm (19.95) is out of stock at B&H so why not order an el-cheapo 49mm for temporary protection.

Dang, guess I will just have to wait until sony releases one. I have some cheaper 49mm ones laying around but the metal one was super nice.

Take more photos, you will need a lens cap less. ;-)

I just lost my lens cap as well Do all the 49mm lens caps fit on the RX1?

I'll answer my own question - yes, the 49mm lens caps all fit the RX1. I got this one

Update: this one works fine on the RX1 and is very secure, but it is difficult to operate with the lens hood. For compatibilty with the lens hood, get a center-pinch lens cap.

Update - Only the 49mm lens caps that are secured against the inner diameter of the lens, such as the snap-on lens caps, will work on the RX1 The 49mm lens caps that are secured against the outer diameter of the lens, such as the push-on lens caps, DO NOT WORK ON THE RX1.

Update - I recommend you get a 49mm center-pinch lens cap, like this one:

The clip-on/snap-on lens caps are very difficult to operate with the lens hood.
