The 58mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap from Sensei is a 58mm 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.

    Cheap, Effective, But Far From Perfect

    The lens cap is solidly made, and the material is of good quality. The center pinch design for a lens cap this size (58mm) doesn't seem to work very well for me though -- the center pinch ledges are too close together since the lens cap is so small, and the springs used in the lens cap is quite strong, so it is hard for my fingers to use the center pinches when removing the cap. Using the regular outside ledges works well though.

    Last but not least, the lens cap was a touch too big for my 18-55 kit lens. The diameter of the cap is a fraction bigger than the 58mm UV filter I have on the lens, so the edge of the cap is not flush against the lens filter. The OEM cap that I lost did not have this problem. Still, the cap fits nice and snug against the filter -- it's just that the outter edge isn't flush.

    Solid, quality material & economical, but could be better designed. The pinch tabs are shallow and perpendicular to the cap rather than angled. This makes it unnecessarily awkward to grip, especially with the stiff spring mechanism. Easy to drop. The catch "ears" are too long, extending beyond the rest of the cap when in place. This can block a closely machined hood from sliding past the cap, defeating the usefulness of the pinch-cap.

    For the Olympus m4/3 75mm f1.8 lens, I purchased the lovely metal Vello hood & this cap as accessories. I ended up subsequently purchasing the Olympus 58mm pinch cap to replace this cap, and it works much better for that lens/hood combo. Looks nicer too, although the anonymous branding of the Sensei can be an asset in some situations.

            Sensei has produced the best design for lens caps I have ever used. I know it is hard for most people to be excited about a lens cap, but trust me when I say, these are the best lens caps ever. Simple design and true ease of use make these caps the pinnacle of the market. Once you buy one for a replacement you will find yourself logging back on to B and H to buy Sensei replacements for the rest of your lenses. The center pinch design is nothing new, of course, but take that and couple it with the robust build and you have a whole pack of winners. The price compared to the Canon replacement caps makes the choice an easy one.

                        Fits the lens snugly. One of the best features of this lens cap is that it is completely opaque. The other is that it covers the lens and keeps dirty away from it.

                        I loose caps regularly. The Sensei cap differs from the original equipment Lumix cap primarily in not having the word "Lumix" on it. Perhaps a little lighter plastic. It works exactly the same, and it is significantly cheaper. If you lose caps, this is a solution.

                        I love my Fujinons, but I hate the front OEM cap. For that reason, Sensei is the best option.

                        The only con is that the plastic material used is a little hard and breakes easily if dropped.

                                    This is an add-on to my previous review. The 5-stars are for Sensei's customer service. Not long after I posted my original review, I was contacted by B and H to see if I was open to being contacted directly by Sensei, which I accepted. Sensei contacted me via e-mail about my issues with their product, which I sent. Their response came from a person, with an email address, phone number and "open door" offer to contact them directly with additional input or inquiries.

                                    Their timeliness, customer concern and personal connection alone is enough for 5 stars. But, on top of that, they offered to send me a new lens cap. Hopefully I will not have the same problem with the replacement. Because of their excellent customer service, I will consider another Sensei product in the future.

                                        I bought this to have an extra lens cap while on vacation. I liked the method of connecting the cap to its strap by adhesive better than the way the cap that came with my camera did - by threading the cap-strap through a hole in the cap. Then I started using it...

                                        after a few hours of using my camera the adhesive connection came unstuck and the lens cap actually broke. The 2 pieces that slide when you pinch them together popped out with the spring mechanism. Glad that I had my original lens cap with me, which worked just fine.

                                        I bought a used Fujinon lens to use with a mirror less camera that I am experimenting with. All I have to compare it to are the Nikon caps. Then used lens came with an antique screw in metal lens cap. The Sensei seems to work well and function just like the Nikon caps. The difference is you are not paying to have the brand name pasted across the front. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that I do not know how it will do over time.

                                            This is a replacement for the original lens cap, which was an old, thin plastic slide-on cap for an old zoom lens. The old cap became cracked and would not stay on the lens. This new cap stays securely on the lens with no problem.
