Designed for the black Leica Elmar-M 50mm f/2.8 Lens, this push-on style Lens Cap protects the front element of the lens when not in use. It is a spare or replacement item for the cap originally included with the lens.
This is one expensive lens cap and only your therapist can advise you about one's sanity in buying it. Should you make the affirmative decision you will find that this is the best possible cap for the 50mm f2.8 collapsable lens. It is a metal alloy, not plastic and has the unique feature of small teeth (of plastic?) that actually engage the knurling on the lens and optional lens hood. There is something terribly endearing about the fanatic craftsmanship that goes into this cap to match the last iteration of the famous original Leica lens. Ask your therapist if you can get one.
