      After a cheep plastic cap broke, I got this metal cap from B&H, it cost less then the plastic ones I found locally. I may lose it someday but I doubt it will ever break.

                  I like these metal lens caps because they don't fall off and they do a good job of protecting the lens. Many of the plastic caps that come with lenses tend to fall off, but these screw in place and stay there.

                      These caps are great, I bought one for each of my Lenses. They dont accidently pop off. I don't mind the extra 2 seconds it takes to unscrew it but it is great protection.

                        I'm old school. I got tired of Nikon's squeeze caps being left in my camera bag each time I pulled out my camera. I remember the screw-on caps from my film camera days and sought one for each of my lenses. They're simple, secure, inexpensive an effective. - Bob Mielke

                        Great for covering & protecting lens when you hav camera slung over your shoulder & out of bag.

                            Basically just use it when I'm storing the camera and then use a clip on lens cap when going out and shooting. works great.
