Product Highlights
  • Pentax Logo
  • Holds Firmly in Place
  • Easy "Grab" Mechanism

This is the Pentax 49mm Snap-On Lens Cap. It features a handy "pinch" design for ease of use. As opposed to traditional lens caps which have snaps on the outside of the cap, this one is easier to use since the "pinching" comes inside the cap itself. In this way, it is easier to retrieve.

        Comments about Pentax 49mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

        I spent more than I had to, but I have a significant investment in Pentax lenses so I wanted to protect the lens with an original version of the cap. The difference in quality between this and less costly options is clear.

            It looks great on a vintage K1000 which will be featured in a charity auction for the local non-profit. The lens cap is also important because there's no on-off switch for the meter.

                    I'm pretty sure these are the best snap on lens covers in available sizes for Pentax lenses.

                        Comments about Pentax 49mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

                        The only issues I have with this cap are inherent to its design type, i.e. that it's dropable and loosable. I use a cap in the field unless I'm actually taking a picture (paranoid maybe, but it's very windy and the dust is hard granite bits, so I take extra precautions that probably aren't necessary for most), and so far it's the only pinch cap I trust to stay put. It's very well made, and very secure, if you want a pinch cap this is the one.

                        Bought this cap for my smc-m lens. The original lens caps will not fit when a hood is attached. The pinch type release of these caps will allow the cap to be placed on a lens with a standard hood mounted.

                          It might seem weird to review something as small as a lens cap, but this is a great cap. I knew them from the kit lenses I got with my Pentax K-r, but was sad when I found out that the 35mm f/2.4 lens comes with an inconvenient lens cap.

                          I lived with it for a year, but then I also added a Fuji X100 to my gear. The filter adapter for that camera does not come with a lens cap, and it's 49mm. So I got this lens cap with it.

                          This one is easy to get off and on, since you pinch the middle to open the sides. I guess some people might think I have some sort of Pentax rangefinder if I have the cap on, but you can always gaffer tape the logo.

                            This center pinch style is a quick grab and goes on quick too. It has good staying power and for me works best when I am in the field and need my equipment to cooperate.

                                          I needed a cap to use instead of the screw on cap for some of my lenses and this one works perfectly for that. I also like that it's the same standard Pentax-branded cap that I have for some of my other lens (e.g. the kit lenses).

                                            This cap is identical to the one I lost which came with the lens when I bought it.
