      This cap is listed as an accessory for the Canon G1x, but it doesn't fit the camera very easily... it will mount on the front of the lens, but not very smoothly or easily. OK for carrying as a back-up if you should lose the original cap, but not really very suitable for everyday use.

                          Not a bad lens cap, but it just barely fits the G1 X. I think I prefer the OEM cap, but if you want something with a lower profile this one will work.

                                Works just perfect if I could only remember to take it off before I try to shoot something. I'll get it soon or later. For five bucks you can't beat it.

                                    It is for an old Yashica camera. It fits the lens perfectly. Hopefully it is durable, but time will tell.

                                                  It's hard to get excited about a simple plastic lens cap, but after losing the 46mm cap off my 20mm pancake lens for the Panasonic Lumix GF1, I couldn't seem to find a replacement anywhere. Thanks B & H! The price is right, too.

                                                  Good quality. I was afraid it was going to be cheap, but it works fine.

                                                      I bought this cap to protect the lens of my camcorder. It is inexpensive, but it works very well.

                                                      I was able to put my own brand on the Snap-On lens Cap (Acme). So when I dropped it, in a camera bag or the ground, I would be able to find it.

                                                      Got this to replace one I had lost. It works but one of the side buttons gets stuck when squeezed so it requires some wiggling to lock into place. Maybe I got a bum one or maybe it's just cheaply made.

                                                        I bought this because the OEM cap was so beautiful I didn't want to lose it, so I wanted a cheap one for everyday use.

                                                        It's a lens cap, what can I say?
