      Comments about Sony ALC-R55 Rear Lens Cap:

      For some reason, my 18-55mm kit lens didn't come with a rear cap. As soon as I realized this, I knew I'd need a rear cap because I soon began acquiring additional lenses and the kit lens fell out of daily use. I was surprised and disappointed that this didn't come with my lens originally, but at least I was able to buy it easily and without great expense

          What's to say? It's a cap. Cleanly molded, no excess flash material, fits the lens, does its job.

                    I lost the original cap for my sony lens so I decided to get a sony cap made for sony by sony. If fits like the one that came with the lens and serves the purpose of keeping the dust out. I would recommend this product to anyone.

                          Why go for the off-label or no-label caps when these are the same price. Work great on old Minolta lenses that I bought used without caps.
