      Comments about Pentax O-LC49 49mm 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.

                      Comments about Pentax O-LC49 49mm 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.

                        Comments about Pentax O-LC49 49mm Lens Cap:

                        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.

                                        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).

                                          Comments about Pentax O-LC49 49mm Lens Cap:

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