      In spite of B&H recommendations I would suggest to use this 80mm lens cap for B&W SCHNEIDER Slim 77mm filters. The outside diameter of those 77mm filters is exactly D=80mm. However this Kaiser Push On cap perfectly fits the filter and stays firm. I always had troubles with B&W Push On Slim Lens Caps, because they keep failing off the lens every time I take it from the back pack. Following the B&H recommendations at first I purchased SCHNEIDER 81.5MM Slip-On Lens Cap. 81.5mm cap also holds firm on 77mm Slim filter, but not as well as KAISER 80mm Push-On Lens Cap. So I would recommend to everyone to purchase KAISER 80mm caps for their B&W SCHNEIDER Slim 77mm filters!

      I got this to use with my 77mm wide angle filter, (there are no threads on this filter to keep the regular cover) The other reviews said it fit snug and others recomended it. well in this case they were wrong. to fit without falling off, it needs to be 78mm maybe 79mm but the 80mm dont work.

      Best Lens Cap for B&W 77mm Slim Filters.

      Comments about Kaiser 80mm Push-On Lens Cap:

      The push-on cap that came with my B+W CPL Slim 77mm kept falling off. I got this Kaiser 80mm after reading some reviews. It is the perfect solution to the problem. It goes deeper than the original cap into the filter, even around the rotating mechanism and stays on its place. It's a little bit pricy but trust me...it worth it. I don't know why B+W (Schneider) can't provide the right cap for such as expensive and high quality filter.
      I'm giving the Kaiser Push-On Cap 4 starts because I think it is over-priced but it does the job.

        Purchased for my Nikkor 24-85 w/slim filter attached. It stays on when I want it too!

        This cover replaces a B&W cover for slim filters that managed to fall off more than stay on.

        Comments about Kaiser 80mm Push-On Lens Cap:

        First, the obvious negative: It's just a way-overpriced piece of plastic. But of course it is not unique in that respect; most photography accessories are priced too high for what they are / their manufacturing costs.That said, this cap is nice and solid (not flimsy) and it stays on securely over my Hoya 77mm filters. I'm satisfied with it, as it does the job I bought it for.

          • Protection

          Comments about Kaiser 80mm Push-On Lens Cap:

          It's hard to give a small piece of plastic 5 stars, but... I'm a fan of B+W filters for protecting my lenses and the thin-mount 77mm on my 10-24mm doesn't take a Nikon cap. I've been using another cap I'd found in my cabinet, but it wasn't very secure. This one is better.

          I'll probably buy a spare.

              I lost my lens cap at the airport and have been looking for a replacement and this lens cap works perfectly. Even though my filters are 77mm thread the actual outside diameter of the filter body is a bit more and this lens cap fits nice and snug. It requires using my little finger to get it off with the petal lens hood in place, but at least it stays on. This is well worth the few dollars it costs and I ordered two to have a spare on hand.

                  This is a great cap for my 77mm Sigma lens. With a thin circular polarizer, you cannot get a lens cap on it, but this fits just like a glove. Far better than the Schneider cap that comes with the polarizer. Highly recommended

                        This is a good product if you want to uniform all your prime still lenses for use in cinematography. I would give it 5 stars, but they kind of tight and awkward at first, take some breaking in to fit perfectly on a 77mm ring.

                                        this product should take NAB by storm, the ingenuity, the craftsmanship, the vision embodied in design. someday we'll all look back as a society and wonder how we ever got by before this was invented.

                                        it pushes on and caps the lens, it's a freaking lens cap. it does stay on though, which not all caps do so there's that.

                                          • 80mm on 77mm lensefilter

                                          Comments about Kaiser 80mm Push-On Lens Cap:

                                          I bought this cap because when you use slim filters (required for wide angle lenses) don't have enough of a lip for standard lens caps to attach too. This cap sits over the filter and lens. I tried it with slim and regular filters and it does the trick every time. I hesitated to buy this brnad as BH sells another make which is cheaper, but people commented that the other cap fell off. Kaiser's has enough of a ring that it stays put. I am glad I paid the extra $2 because this works well. I highly recommend.

                                                This cap fits great on the 77mm filter.

                                                  These push on caps fit perfectly as replacements for my misplaced Singh Ray filter caps... and a bargain to boot.

                                                  I got this to use with my 77mm wide angle filter, (there are no threads on this filter to keep the regular cover) The other reviews said it fit snug and others recomended it. well in this case they were wrong. to fit without falling off, it needs to be 78mm maybe 79mm but the 80mm dont work.

                                                      Conventional lense cap won't work on Canon 10-22mm if UV filter installed. This one is a perfect fit. Also works with hood installed.
                                                      Cool!

                                                        I have a low-profile filter on my Sigma 10-20mm, to avoid vignetting. I can't use a normal lens cap that grabs the threads, because there aren't any. The push-on lens cap that came with the filter is too big and won't stay on. This one does. Huzzah!
