    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.

                Its small but important part of my camera, and B&H got me the replacement lens cap for my camera with no hassles. Folks on phone were knowledgeable and made sure I got exactly what I needed. All companies should have this kind of service.

                      I lost the lens cap to my 18-200mm VRII while hiking in the Alps. Bought this one to replace. It is factory Nikon, very functional. Arrived in good time. Great purchase!

                            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.

                            It's OK, just over priced.

                                      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.

                                              Wanted to use this with my old manual focus 85mm f/1.4 Ai-s lens, but with the lens hood for this lens, this lens cap does not work. 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.

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.

                                                                                    This the Nikon replacement lens cap for a variety of lenses with the 72MM filter including the 18-200 VR, 12-24, and others. I keep spare lens caps for my common sizes in the bag for extra insurance.

                                                                                    Genuine Nikon cap, fits right and holds.
