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.

          There are no better lens caps on the market. Even Canon shooters use Nikon caps! Get some spare ones as you're sure to lose a few.

                Real Nikon caps are way better than off brand replacements. Nice strong springs hold the cap on nicely.

                              The high quality plastic is evident in this lens cap, and the LC-52 cap lasts a very long time. The pinch design works very well. When the lens hood is in place, the inner pinch point is designed with enough finger-grip to allow good control of the 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.

                                                    Nothing really to say other than it does what you want, cover your lens.

                                                          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.
