      If you have a fisheye, you have to have the cap! If you lose it, no choice but to replace. This cap is described to replace the 16mm 2.8 fisheye lens but it fits equally well on the Nikon 10.5mm DX lens.

      This is extremely straightforward. First, it fits correctly and works just fine (thus warranting 5 stars). Second, it's ridiculously expensive for what must be pennies worth of plastic (thus warranting 1 star). IF YOU HAVE THIS NIKON LENS, GET A CAP-KEEPER. Yes, they seem a little amateurish, but you will very likely lose the original lens cap and be forced to buy this lens cap or else cover your lens with plastic wrap and a rubber band.

      Wasn't sure if I'd ever find a replacement for my fisheye Nikon Lens. I didn't have to look far. B&H came through. My fisheye is now safety covered.

      Comments about 61mm Slip-On Front Lens Cover for Select Nikon Lenses:

      This lenscap replaced the original equipment which got worn with age and became too big, slipping off the lens rather easily. I suspect it will also lose its snugness and need to be replaced again in a few years.

          I naturally lost my original lens cap. This is a replacement. Works fine, but it is a bit pricey (hense it's four rating instead of five stars). I know it is more Nikon's doing than B&H.

              It is a direct replacement from Nikon so the fit and finish is of high quality. I do wish it was cheaper but it's my fault for losing it in the first place.

                    I photographed a concert using this cap. I thought the fit was pretty snug so I did not bother to get the leash that you can buy with this cap. I should've invested in the leash. The cap fell off sometime during the concert and was never seen again. Waste $34 on this piece of junk.

                                Things that are great about this product is the fact it can never become lose or fall off my lens while used for protection while i do not shoot live music .
                                Things i would say that are so so with it is maybe it shold be metal yet a plastic feel is kinda ok to me ,yet again metal maybe a better option for this product .

                                  This is extremely straightforward. First, it fits correctly and works just fine (thus warranting 5 stars). Second, it's ridiculously expensive for what must be pennies worth of plastic (thus warranting 1 star). IF YOU HAVE THIS NIKON LENS, GET A CAP-KEEPER. Yes, they seem a little amateurish, but you will very likely lose the original lens cap and be forced to buy this lens cap or else cover your lens with plastic wrap and a rubber band.

                                            I lost my lens at a club and thought I could never replace such an odd lens cap. Low and behold, BH has the cap [...] Good to know these things exist because the glass on a fisheye can easily get scratched.

                                                  what to say about this?
                                                  It's a bit expensive and not easy to find online. It's ok it works as you suppose a lens cap to work!

                                                        If you have a fisheye, you have to have the cap! If you lose it, no choice but to replace. This cap is described to replace the 16mm 2.8 fisheye lens but it fits equally well on the Nikon 10.5mm DX lens.
