    I use these lens caps on my Canon lenses because I greatly prefer the center pinch Nikon design to the edge pinch design of the standard Canon lens caps. These are just so much easier to use when you have a lens hood mounted. A little expensive for a piece of plastic, perhaps, but I think the convenience is worth a little extra cost in the long run.

    The cap usually protects my lens when I'm not using it. When I am snapping pictures I put it in my right hand pocket.

    If you really want to surprise me and maybe sell a lot more caps, invent some kind of "Transformer" lens that shape changes and makes the lens turn into a hood/parasol.

    Otherwise, because it's an accessory that is easily lost and overpriced people may start to think that its been designed this way for business reasons. Wrongdoing clients can lead to nikon employees and shareholders having bad posture. Think about it. By the way, I don't need 250 dollars to remain a client, I prefer to think nikon needs to put the client first when it comes to lens caps.

        I bought this to replace a new sigma lens cap that kept falling off when it was in my bag. The Nikon lens caps simply work.

                      I'm partial to Nikon lenscaps. They stay securely on the lens and the flat front surface allows you to sit a lens facing down on a horizontal surface without excessive wobbling. I purchased this one to replace the bundled cap that came with a Fujifilm lens, which kept popping off and had protruding pinch controls.

                                                  I have an older Nikon lens for which I had lost the lens cap. The old cap was a pinch from the outside style and was cramped within the lens shade when I had it in use. This cap is a better replacement than my original, since I can "pinch" from the center of the lens to remove.

                                                            I got this cover as a replacement for my Rokinon 85mm 1.4 lens that did not fit very well. This cover grips the filter threads great and forms a nice tight seal, keeping out dust. Since the cover release is on the inside, it no longer pops off when inside my camera pack.

Works fine without the lens hood, but when would I use the lens without the hood (?) as this was why I wanted the easy to snap in/snap out lens cap as pictured. This type of lens cap is my favorite for other Nikon lenses used with a lens hood/lens shade.

                                                                                        While this item is small as purchases go it is the exact looking replacement for the cap I lost. No matter how large or how small your order is B&H never lets you down. Delivery is always on time and every product is in perfect working order. That's why I've been a customer for years.
                                                                                        You can't go wrong with B&H.
