    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.

        Good to have when you are in wilderness

        Comments about Nikon 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

        In my recent photo tour in wilderness, I lost all my lens caps. I believe it is good to have lens cap on your lens when not in use to protect. So it is good to have few extras snap on lens caps.

              Comments about Nikon 77mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

              I replaced the snap-on lens caps on my Zeiss ZF.2 lenses with Nikon caps. Perhaps it is user error, but I've had difficulty with Zeiss lens caps attaching easily and staying put. I have had far fewer attachment challenges with Nikon lens caps. Since I shoot with Nikon and Zeiss lenses, I know that when I'm in the field I won't be finger-fumbling with various lens cap mechanisms. Whether it is one of my Nikon lenses or a Zeiss, I can easily and quickly remove or replace a lens cap without looking, even with thin gloves on. One less thing to get in the way of a positive photography experience.

                                  No complaints. I buy multiples of these 77mm caps so I can step-up my smaller lenses to 77mm filter size and cap them off accordingly. Works well.

                                                        I lost the lens cap that came with the lens in the deep new England woods. No chance of recovery. So I searched online for a replacement and found the original equipment. It is a great fit for the Nikon lens.
