Sensei 77mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap

You Pay: $4.95
Product Highlights
  • Ideal for Use with Lens Hood
  • Easy Placement and Removal
  • Center-Squeeze Snap-On Style

The 77mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap from Sensei is a 77mm 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.

    After doing a side by side with a Sigma cap, I found why the Sigma cap was so difficult to attach, and why the Sensei was so much easier to attach.

    The image below shows the Sensei on the left and the Sigma on the right. The Sensei has a larger area that clips into the lens vs the small area of the Sigma lens cap.

    I was really looking forward to the center pinch caps, especially for use with lens hoods. However, I was bummed when I realized that the underside of this product isn't hollow, or countersunk at all. As a result, if the front element of your lens protudes into the thread region of the lens (like the canon 17-40), this cap will rub against the element. Alternatively, the center-pinch standard lens cap with the Canon 70-300 has a hollow underside which would not press against the glass (not that it's much of an issue with that particular lens). I hope that is clear - a little difficult to describe, but just be careful when you put these on - make sure the underside isn't rubbing against your glass!

    Kind of a bummer, but not a must-have accessory

                  Fits perfectly on my 77mm Marumi EXUS polarizer.
                  A couple of the plastic corners are a bit sharper than I expected... I got a bit of a poke once when I was pinching the cap onto the lens. This is no big deal and wouldn't cause me to hesitate buying again.

                      This lens cap is as good or better than the Nikon. It seems a bit more solid, and fits tighter. It definitely will not pop off accidentally. 5 stars.

                              I grabbed this as a backup to the canon lens cap on my 16-35 4.0 L, and I'm glad I did. It's a simple thing, a lens cap, but the default caps don't always pass muster. I love a center pinch cap that is easy to grab from any angle--even and especially from behind the camera--and that has a satisfying clack when it secures. This little cap accomplishes both perfectly.

                                    Got a handful of these caps because I'm constantly misplacing my original Canon caps and was surprised to find they're better than the originals. The Canon caps for my 24-105 L and 10-22 are easy to dislodge while these have a really firm grip. I also prefer the center pinch to the side pinch of the originals. I put step up rings on my Zeiss 35mm and Sigma 18-35 to make them 77mm and have put the Sensei caps on those as well. Now all my lenses have the same cap so it's easy to switch them around as I change lenses.

                                                  Does a great job of replacing the stock lens cap! I like the center-pinch style as it gets ma better grip on the lens.

                                                      Other than the absence of a Nikon emblem on the front, I don't see a difference between this and my Nikon lens caps that are much more expensive.

                                                      Bought this cap for my B+W circular polarizer. It works as described and is comparable to my Nikon caps. They are easy to use and stay on! I highly recommend!!

                                                          Center release for this lens cover makes it better than the factory cover. Works especially well with long telephotos and deep hoods
