    I'm a Canon shooter, but really dislike Canon's lens caps because they are not a center pinch design and are almost impossible to attach/detach when you have a lens hood on. So I have been looking at different center-pinch caps. This is the best I have found so far.

    I have also tried the Tamron and Olympus caps, and prefer the Nikon. I've got fat fingers, so I'm especially interested in a center pinch design where my fingers don't slip off the center "pinch bits".

    The Nikon caps are easier to grip than the Tamron caps. The Olympus caps look to be the same design (but aren't quite), and have just slightly less grip than the Nikon caps.

    But the Olympus caps cost much less, and are almost as good, so it's kind of a tossup. I will probably instead go with the Olympus caps, and glue something grippy to the part the fingers grab onto.

    This would be 5 stars if the price wasn't so crazy.

    I love my Tokina 12-24, but the lens cap not so much. Its just a little shallow on the squeeze to get it on or off easily. The Nikon fits better and seems to stay on better and easier to use.

    Still it would be nice if the Nikon were a bit deeper to make grabbing it better.

    Replacement Cap

    By Oak Park Photog

    from Illinois

    Comments about Nikon 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

    Don't bother with the knockoffs. None of them are as good as the Nikon originals. I always keep at least one extra as a spare in my bag. I even have a friend who shoots Canon and he replaces his factory original caps with these. They're easy to secure and they hold fast.

        Original Nikon Lens Cap

        By NikonGal

        from USA

        Comments about Nikon 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

        I have the Nikon 85mm 1.8D lens which has a metal screw on lens hood. You cannot attach the lens cap that came with the lens when the metal lens hood is screwed on. The 77mm is perfect for keeping a cap on the lens when you have the metal lens hood attached.

        Comments about Nikon 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

        Where do I even begin? This product is simply top notch. I only gave it five starts because eleventy billion wasn't an option! Before getting this lens cap, I tried a lot of other products to keep my lens from getting scratched and/or dusty. I tried sandpaper (didn't work... lens still got scratched), steel wool (same result), duct tape (no scratches, but left a sticky residue on the lens that blurred photos and attracted dust), and a 58 mm lens cap (wouldn't stay on the lens). Luckily, a friend suggested that I try the 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap by Nikon. Man, what a life saver. Since purchasing this, I haven't had any scratched or excess dust. And it fits my 77mm Nikon lens like it was made for it! I just can't recommend this product enough!

          Comments about Nikon 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

          Reminds me to try to be more amazing by not losing the darned things. I use the product in the normal way and also in such a special way that I can't leave any witnesses behind to verify my forgetfulness and tendency to lose the pesky little items. It's great in that it fits the lenses it's designed to fit. It's less than great in that it doesn't start screaming at me when I leave it in a wide range of places. I give them all names: Cap 1, Cap 2, etc. Cap 9 is resting comfortably on it's designated lens in the designated camera bag.

                  I am weary of the rear lens caps falling off of my Sigma lenses so I am replacing them with Nikon brand caps. The Nikon caps are more secure and make life easier(especially the rear one).

                      Nice lens cap. Bought for a new Sigma 10-20 lens. My old Sigma lens had a terrible cap that never stayed on, so I ordered this planning to toss the one that came on the Sigma. To my surprise, the new version of the Sigma lens has a MUCH better cap design, so I'll use it but hang on to this one just in case.

                                            Mamiya makes great lenses for the RZ67, but the front lens caps are poor even when new, especially when reaching in through a lens shade to take them off. If you're not especially careful, it is easy to touch the front glass of the lens with the cap. The Nikon 77mm lens cap is the perfect upgrade, and it gives you positive control with its center-pinch design. Highly recommended.

                                              I am slowly replacing the older lens caps with this type as they work so much better.

                                                  This is a Nikon lens cap that works just like a Nikon lens cap should.

                                                      I'm using the Nikon lens cap to replace the truly worthless Sigma lens cap that came on the Sigma 17-50mm 2.8.

                                                        There are none better on the market. It's especially handy to have on the lens in combination with a lens hood, since they are so easily inserted and removed.

                                                        Use a lens cap if you have expensive glass worth protecting. This is probably the fourth cap I've had to buy - I keep losing them. Even the tethers I've tried don't work. There's nothing wrong with this cap, though.
