      Made of thick durable rubber with a Leica logo stamped on the front. I bought this to keep the dust off my Summicron 4th version Pre-ASPH hood and it works on it as well. The little rubber tabs on the sides are not so snug though and you really have to be careful not to let it pop off, for instance if you brushed against someone's arm or something. It fits enough to stay on, but I don't know that I would keep it on outside a carrying case, since it's so easy to pop off and lose. Oh well, it works for it's intended purpose, and if you really dont want to lose it you can put one of those sticker with a string thing on it. Maybe it fits better on the hood of the ASPH lens hood.

        Comments about Leica Lens Hood Cap for 35mm 2.0 M:

        this hoop cap is better than the original hood cap cuz it tighter and hardness.but you should still care more about this hood.it can escape you as we'll,even if it's a tighter hood cap!

        Comments about Leica Lens Hood Cap for 35mm 2.0 M:

        This lens cap is designed to cover the Leica 35 Summicron by attaching over the lens hood instead of directly to the lens. This enables protection of the front element from bumps and bruises while carrying the camera between exposures and is easily removed for shooting, eliminating the need to attach and re attach the lens hood each time. this increases the readiness of the photographer to make exposures immediately.

              I bought this on the chance that it would fit the square lens hood on the 28mm Elmarit. Fortunately it does.

                The lens-hood cover that came with my 35 mm Summicron-M never fit correctly and fell off, never to be found. This replacement hood cover is easy to remove, but stays on when needed. It works like it's supposed to.

                                  I purchased my Cron 35 used without a hood cap, so I got this. It works as it should, a bit pricey for a piece of flexible plastic, but it's Leica and a high price is something one has to expect.

                                    I was worried that the Leica brand lens cover would be extremely over priced. But after finding it, I was impressed by not only the price but the quality as well. Can't go wrong with this one, especially since having a cover prevents the sun from burning a whole through the cloth shutter of the camera, much cheaper than replacing that.

                                            Its very easy to fall off, so keep eye on it!
                                            But it looks great on the hood!
                                            I don't have lens cap since my len is used one, so I get this hood cap, its a ok product.

                                              The lens hood cap fits and works as it should. I wish it was cheaper considering it's just one piece of plastic. Oh wait, it does have the "Leica" logo on it...nevermind.

                                                  Made of thick durable rubber with a Leica logo stamped on the front. I bought this to keep the dust off my Summicron 4th version Pre-ASPH hood and it works on it as well. The little rubber tabs on the sides are not so snug though and you really have to be careful not to let it pop off, for instance if you brushed against someone's arm or something. It fits enough to stay on, but I don't know that I would keep it on outside a carrying case, since it's so easy to pop off and lose. Oh well, it works for it's intended purpose, and if you really dont want to lose it you can put one of those sticker with a string thing on it. Maybe it fits better on the hood of the ASPH lens hood.
