    Very nice and cheap compared to the brand name cap. Works almost the same.
    A few minor shortcomings to the brand name cap:
    -Doesn't fit perfectly on some of my filters
    -Doesn't fit as securely as the brand name lens cap
    -It is a little bit smaller then 58mm, which is why it sometimes feels a little flimsy.
    But for a lens cap it does the job perfectly!

    i bought 2 of these just to keep with me since i am an avid cap loser! they are a little hard to get on and not very durable, but for someone like me, who loses caps often, they do the trick.

        Lens caps are easy to lose, especially for teenagers. These make an affordable replacements. I bought more than I needed.

                    It fits, keeps the dust off. What more do you need? Why pay more?

                    The only problems I had with it were the following;

                    1. This lens cap made focusing in low light difficult and blurry when attached. :)

                    2. Models thought my work was unprofessional when shooting with this lens cap attached.

                    3. Shots appeared a little underexposed while this lens cap was attached.

                    4. Camera body had great trouble in "P" mode while attached. Whereas It worked great in "M" while removed. I would suggest removing the lens cap and shooting in "M" mode to alleviate any problems.

                          This cap works just as well as the factory cap but it's cheaper. Unless you feel the need to advertise for Canon by buying their logo cap, save the cash and get this generic cap, maybe even personalize it with a sticker or your own artwork!

                                This lens cap is a wonderful, inexpensive replacement for my lost cap from my Canno EOS Rebel XSi. It would also be good for any other 58mm lens.

                                            Closet to the original I've found. Doesn't fit as snug as the name brand but for an off brand it fits well.

                                                          I liked the actual Canon lens cap better. The Canon spring action (when taking the cap off and on) is smoother. But for the price difference, this one works fine. I would make the same purchase again. Get the generic lens cap and save the money.

                                                            I lost the cap for my canon 50mm 1.4... I got this generic cap to keep my lens safe. It actually is a better and feels more secure than the canon version...
