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!

      This fits on my Fuji but barely. It does not seem very secure. The hole in the side for attaching to a lanyard is so tiny it will be difficult to use. So have not even tried yet. Am not happy with this at all. If possible to rate with less than one star I would have. Not worth the effort to return.

          I always have a lens cap on my lens and this one is not only easy to install and easy to remove, but once in place it stays in place. What else is there?

              First one of this maker I've bought and found it to be pretty well made and very secure once properly in place. Better than several of the "side snap" types I have.

              I bought this as a replacement for a Tamron lens. Fits perfectly at a much lower price than the OEM version.

                      If you use the Sensei Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap in conjunction with the Sensei Cap Keeper Lens Cap Holder you never have to worry about loosing your lens cap again.The price of the 72mm Sensei Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap is much cheaper than the original manufacturer's equipment.

                                      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.

                                                      Needed and extra lens cap for my Canon and this bit the bit. It's sturdy and east to attach.

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