I ordered this Ricoh LC-1 lens cap the same time as my LX3, but it took a little while longer to come.
This solves the 'inconvenience' of removing the lens cap before taking a picture. Just turn the camera on, and the lens 'pushes' through the cap, like some awesome Transformer-Borg gadget.
I expected it would make people smile when they saw it, and then I would take a picture of their amusement. The average look, however, has been one of confused astonishment, with at least one raised eyebrow.
I still love it.
