So I ordered the lens hood and adapter. I figured it would offer me some good protection while walking around in the warm weather months when I expect to have the X100 out and about on my shoulder. Rather than did through some great threads for some of the tips and how to's, I thought I'd fall upon your mercies...and ask us all to share info right in here. I remember David that you had some trouble at first fitting things on, but it did work out... Ray, you have this set up don't you? Or Burkey... Rich, are you using yours yet, I recall you had a nice little set up with a screw lens cap that you were planning to employ. I also ordered a UV filter, much to I know Don/Streetshooter's dismay...since he prefers his lenses naked.
