Sensei 72mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap

You Pay: $3.95
Product Highlights
  • Ideal for Use with Lens Hood
  • Easy Placement and Removal
  • Center-Squeeze Snap-On Style

The 72mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap from Sensei is a 72mm front lens cap with a squeeze, spring and snap-on mechanism. They're easy to put on and take off, especially when using lens hoods, and they stay on. Lens caps protect your lens from scratches, fingerprints and the elements when the lens is not in use. It's always good to have a spare in your camera bag, too.

        I bought this cap to replace a lost Canon cap. As I normally use a lens hood, the OEM side pinch Canon cap was something of a pain at times. I find this center pinch cap convenient to use and that it is a definite improvement of the OEM cap. Canon now makes a center pinch replacement cap, at an exorbitant price. This Sensei cap appears to be well make and works perfectly, and fits securely on my Canon 17-14 mm L lens. Not having the Canon logo displayed across the front is no big deal. It now appears a fortunate accident that I lost the original cap, as I now have a better working combo, for a very modest price. I have since ordered a second cap, just in case I should ever misplace my replacement cap!

        Looks and feels good

        Pretty much the same as an oem cap without the logo but seems strange putting something like this on an old nikon 180 2.8.

                    What can I say, it's a lens cap. However, it does seem to be more secure than my Nikon cap which apparently fell off somewhere on the road.

                                Why wouldn't you buy this one? It's exactly the same as the Nikon branded lens cap, for 1/5 of the cost. Works and feels identical. Save your money, buy this one.

                                          I lost my sigma lens cap; this one works (afaik) given I've only had it for a day.

                                                    Inexpensive but invaluable and well made product.

                                                        I lose lens caps when I am enjoying the outdoors and the edges get caught on my gear. I purchased a few Sensi caps for less than a fourth the cost of Nikon caps and except that they don't have the Nikon logo on them, seem identical. I carry a spare in my bag and no longer worry about losing them while out. I have now purchased spares for both my 77mm and 72mm lenses. I have tried other after market brands without such luck.

Actually, I liked that it fit really well on a Canon lens, and I really gave some thought of replacing all my lens caps because I don't like to advertise that I own an expensive camera system. I am sorry Canon, but I am also a fan of Nikon, and only went to the "dark side" on a whim after my Nikon D300 was stolen - another reason not to advertise and to buy this cap.

I lost it shooting nightlife photography and immediately purchased this one and it hasn't left my lens yet. The center pinch is more than enough for me to endorse this product.
