Product Highlights

The 55mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap from Sensei is a 55mm front lens cap with a squeeze, spring and snap-on mechanism.

          I bought this after looking for my lens cap for over 6 months. After finally ordering one, I found my original lens cap! However, when I received this lens cap, I love it so much that I am ordering more to replace my other lens caps with these! These are so much more secure and don't fall off as easily as other lens caps. I highly recommend these to everyone!!!

          It Works, but it's Bulky

          It works but it's bulky. Would have gotten the thin design if I had to do it over.

                    I think it would be great if I had gotten the right size. I lost my original lens cap for my canon zoom lens ef-s 18-55mm. I thought I needed a 55mm cap, but the diameter of such a lens is actually 58mm. Now I know!

                          A couple of my lenses came without caps, so these fit the bill nicely. They're easy to use with a lens hood on and stay put. Cheap and effective.

                                        I like the big release grips on the lens cover. They are easier and quicker than the grips on the original.

                                            I like to have control over the lens cap as it is being put in place. This cap allows my fingers to have a good grip on the lens cap. The lens caps with grips on the side give me the feeling that I might scratch the lens while the cap is being placed. This lens cap is well made and gives me the confidence that I have a professional product.

                                                  I actually needed this type of lens cap because the previous one Where it is suppose to stop the pinch for closing. That middle piece has broken fron the support and the cap no longer worked. So I ordered this and it's much more solid.

                                                        I awoke one morning after a restless night sleep knowing I had lost my dear lens cap after spending an exhilirating day shooting outdoors. I knew how to cure my insomnia -- go to B&H photo and find myself a 55mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap. This one by Sensei works great and hugs my 70-300mm or 28-60mm Minolta lenses like a warm blanket on a cold winter night. Thanks B&H!

                                                            A nice strong little center-pinch lens cap. Going to use it to replace my 35+ year old Canon A-1 lens cap, which I have lost (and refound) on more occasions than I can count.

                                                            The lens cap is perfect the pinch styling allows you to grasp it from the outer edges as well as the inner rings. Makes it easy to remove when used with lens hood.
