Tamron 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap

You Pay: $8.95

Tamron's unique construction allows you to take off and put back on the lenscap with a lenshood in the shooting position, and they are tight enough that they rarely fall off by accident like so many other supposed bargains will certainly do.  Available in the typical sizes between 52mm and 82mm.  If you put the function of something like a lenscap above other concerns then just try one-you won't regret it!

    Some years ago I ordered a Tamron 17-50mm lens and it came with the usual Tamron cap (67mm threads in that lenses case). I have learned since that between Canon, Olympus and Tamron I live Tamrons caps the best. Every time I get a new lens I also order the corresponding Tamron cap (and most my primary lenses are 77mm threads).

    Why? The center pinch release. Canon does not have them and Olympus' don't grip as well (in my opinion). Center pinch caps are almost a necessity if you are shooting with a lens hood in place (which many serious photographers do often). The Tamron caps also seem to 'fit' better, meaning for some reason they are easier to get back on than any other lens cap I have used.

    The only drawback I would even think to mention is if you're a name snob and don't like the fact that you have "TAMRON" in bold silver letters across a lens can placed on your Canon or Nikon lens. Some nice black paint/ink or electrical tape will take care of that for you however.

    Difficult to pinch

    The whole point of buying a center pinch cap is to be able to pinch the cap and put it in or take it out easily and with the hood on.

    The whole point of buying a center pinch cap is to be able to pinch the cap and put it in or take it out easily and with the hood on.

    Well, it's not an easy cap to pinch, as my fingers slip quite easily.

    The center pinch sytem of Nikon caps is much better.

    Still, this cap is better than the rubbish sigma cap in my 24 f1.8.

    I would not recomment this cap.

      This makes me smile...as I would really like to review my new Canon 85 lens...but it does snap on and protects my lens...wish I would have had a cover on my lens when I fell last December in California...oh well...

      As always... B & H is the best

                    I purchase Tamron (and sometimes Nikon) lens caps to replace the dreadful stock caps on my Canon lenses, which are too thin and slippery to grip properly (expecially inside a hood). They are great to replace caps on older lenses too (I have a collection of Minolta MC/MD lenses and use step-up rings to go from 49-52mm and 55-58mm). I would much rather lose one of these over a cliff than a Zeiss lens cap!

                      These are the best snap on lens caps bar none. The feature that I really like are the inner tabs that allow me to put them on/take them off with the lens hood fitted on. I have tried several other brands of caps on my lenses, they always seem to fall off.

                          They work! You can buy 3 for almost the price of one "Nikon" (probably same 3rd party manufacturer).
                          At 1st I was concerned they may not fit right but they do. If you're a working photog you know how often these end up "missing." At these prices you can have several backups at all time...no thanks to Nikon...

                            This cap is much easier to take off than the original Canon, especially when used with a lens shade. It could even be better, if the grip edge had a bit more edge to it. But it does work and it works well.

                                      As previously written in other reviews, this fits better than the canon cap. I have this on my canon 70-200 2.8L and 24-105L with a filter. The canon filter was doing ok. It didn't fit as tight on the filter. This cap fits perfect, nice and tight. I also love the center release mechanism. I can easily take it on and off with the lens hood on.
