46mm Lensmate adapter for Leica D-Lux 4 coming next week

As reported earlier, Lensmate was working on an adapter tube and lens hood for the Leica D-Lux 4. Yesterday I got some updates from Lensmate:

Dear Lensmate customer,
Just a quick note to let you know that we will have the 46mm Lensmate adapter available to order in the next week or so.
We are excited about our new adapter because we have designed 2 small custom Delrin clips, that clip into the existing OEM lens cap so you are able to use the lens cap with the new adapter. The lens cap is so beautifully made that we felt it was important to the integrity of the camera to keep it in place - so each Lensmate adapter will have 2 clips included.
We are trying to get an idea on how many people would like silver rather than black adapters, please email your preference.
We should have photos up on the site in the next week, we will email you again once we have the adapter available to order.

Dear Lensmate customer,
It would appear from some of your emails, that I should have explained in more detail about the EOM lens cap.
It may not be obvious, but the LX3/Dlux4 OEM lens cap only clips into the trim ring - it will not clip into the 46mm lens adapter or a 46m filter. The adapter tabs Lensmate is making will allow the use of the OEM lens cap directly on a 46mm lens adapter or 46mm filter.
The plastic clips snap on, and can be easily removed.
