You Pay: $3.40
Product Highlights
  • Ideal for Use with Lens Hood
  • Easy Placement and Removal
  • Center-Squeeze Snap-On Style

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.

        Being able to squeeze at the center of the lens cap instead of at the edges makes removing and replacing the cap a lot easier -- especially if you have a lens shade in place. This version is far less expensive than the new Canon cap. I suspect it is also not quite as good. The problem I encounter is it's not so easy to squeeze properly.

                      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.

                          This lens cap stays on tight in my bag. It has tighter springs than the Voigtlander (17.5 F0.95) lens cap that I had for the lens.

                                    Bought this to replace standard Canon lens cap. This cap is great with the center-pinch style and is very easy to access with a hood on. Feels very quality and has been working great. Grips onto lens very secure.

                                                                  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.

So I confused how I used this store and how I purchase the thing. But they announce me so kindly and the cap has perfect quality. I would recommend this store to my friends. I really appreciate your store.
