I borrowed my boss' camera and returned it. My boss asks me "where's the lens cap"? I say,"there was no lens cap" and he says "Oh yes there was". Feeling guilty that I lost the lens cap' I found the exact cap at B&H Photo[...] it fit perfectly. A couple of days later my boss found the original lens cap in his home. Story of my life.

Had to replace the cap after losing it at the shore. It was a bummer because it was the original cap on an older lens.

This cap is great. I love the deep recesses on the front so I can grab it with my fingers in the dark and don't have to fumble for the knurling around the edge.

It's pretty expensive for what it is, a couple of pieces of injection-molded plastic and a couple of springs for tension.

      Comments about Nikon 52mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

      I purchased this lens cap to replace the original cap that was included on my kit lens. It is identical to the original cap and fits nicely on my 18mm-55mm lens.The lens cap uses a pinch grip mechanism that holds the cap on tight. It seems durable enough to last a long time.

          Nikon's newest design - much more secure, and easier to attach/remove than older designs.

                          Lens cap is a must, never transport a lens without one. If you lose it, better buy a new one than risk damaging your lens, very inexpensive and easy to install. If you have a tendency to lose things then I would suggest getting a lens cap with a keeper.

                              What can I say, it's round, it works as described, and it's easy to use. The instruction manual was a bit confusing. After reading it, I had the thing on backwards. Finally figured it out. My advice, don't read the manual that comes with it. Too confusing.

                                        I lost this while shooting a wedding in Punta Cana. B&H had it at the right price. As usual B&H had the right pricing and fast shipping. I have not been disappointed with any of my purchases from B&H.

                                                  OK, maybe I am fussy. I carelessly lost my lens cap out of my camera bag when I put it in an unzipped comparttment. I wanted an exact replacement and B&H had it. If you consider that shipping is free, the price is not too bad and the service was great.

                                                          It is exactly the same snap-on that comes with the camera. Surprisingly lower prices then most of the other sizes. It is of course best not to be lost. But free shipping by B&H made it a bit less painful.
