Product Highlights
  • Ideal for Use with Lens Hood
  • Easy Placement and Removal
  • Center-Squeeze Snap-On Style

The 52mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap from Sensei is a 52mm 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.

        Replacement Cap for Oly 12-50mm lens

        Hadn't had my Olympus OM-D E-M5 (in the lovely retro silver) a month, and I lost the lens cap for the 12-50mm kit lens. My habit is to put the lens cap...Read complete review

        Hadn't had my Olympus OM-D E-M5 (in the lovely retro silver) a month, and I lost the lens cap for the 12-50mm kit lens. My habit is to put the lens cap in my pants pocket while I'm shooting - and I was wearing "nice" pants w/ a stupid usless shallow pocket - best I can guess it that the lens cap was joggled out of my pocket while we were walking over the humps at the Christmas Tree Farm. Noticed the lack of lens cap back at the car... tried to retrace my steps, but we'd wandered and looked at a lot of trees....

        The Sensei 52mm lens cap seemed to be the best option to replace the 52mm Olympus cap. Due to the center-pinch mechanism, the Sensei cap is flat on the inside (not concave) w/ a small rim. I was worried that it might touch the external lens element that is a bit convex, but hubby (who doesn't have astigmatism & is better w/ vectors & lines) assures me that there is clearance.

        The Sensei center pinch cap is easy to put on & remove, even w/ the lens hood on. It is flat black - doesn't say "Olympus" in big silver letters in the middle. It seems to stay on better than the original Olympus cap - several times the Oly cap stayed in the bottom of my camera bag when I took the camera out. Not sure if I hadn't attached the Oly cap completely, or if something on the front of the Oly cap snagged the brushed tricot lining of my camera bag (acting as a "hook" to the brushed tricot "loop" fabric)

        Not that great

        Always feels like it might fall off!

                          I use this product for the filters I bought for another camera that has a different thread. I like to protect the filter when it is on the camera. This was a very inexpensive for me to do that.

                              I love having multiple lens cap covers in a drawer. I don't loos them often, but it's great having a backup in the bag (especially if you shoot with nice glass).

                                    Works just as well as the name brand, for a lot less money. Edges are a little sharp.

                                    This center pinch lens cap is very useful since I purchased a lens hood for my nifty 50. I have found the cap to be well made and that the pinch style makes the cap easy to use with my hood.. I am very pleased with this lens hood.

                                        If you're buying a third party lens, pitch it and get one of these. They're cheap and they fit better. It's that simple.

                                              The plastic is not the same quality as the original Nikon, hence pinching is not as smooth, but it does it's job to the best of it's ability.

                                                        The cap is a different style from my original cap but I don't find that to be a problem. The fit is fine and the price was good.

                                                            I bought this when I lost my Canon lens cap. LOVE IT! I love how it snaps together, it actually stays on the lens way better than my old Canon lens cap. Great purchase!

                                                                        I own a Canon PowerShot S5IS and upon attaching a lens adapter realized that the original Canon cap did not fit the now 52mm attachment, so I purchase this one. It has a nice snug fit and I love the easy to use center pinch design. Fits perfectly on any 52mm filter also. My only disappointment is that it is lacking a notch for a "cap keeper" cord, so it gets annoying having to tuck the cap back into my camera bag or pocket every time I take it off of the camera. Would be so much simpler to just let it dangle.

                                                                            I bought this lens cap to replace the poorly-designed Fuji cap that came with my XF 35mm 1.4 lens. Unlike most non-OEM caps, this is a quality piece of plastic that's easy to use and stays securely on the lens. In fact, it looks like a copy of my Nikon lens caps but without the logo and a non-glossy finish. Unless having the manufacturer's name on the cap is important to you (and there's nothing wrong with that if you don't mind paying more), these are the replacement caps you should get.
