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.

        Not an improvement over Canon cap

            Comments about Sensei 58mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap:

            This center pinch snap-on cap is billed as easier to use with a hood. Not in my opinion. The spring-loaded "ears" protrude from the rest of the cap and make it hard to put on a lens when its hood is in place.

              This isn't a very complex purchase. I'm very happy with the product it has a good grip on my lens and is easy to put on and take off. Very similar to the original.

              Gets the job done. I use it on a Bronica 75MM F/2.8 MC lens. Feels solid. Would go generic again.

                              I have replaced all my caps with the Sensei brand caps. Why Canon and Sony and Fuji and Nikon don't use caps of this quality on there expensive lenses in beyond me. You will not be disappointed with these caps. They stay on, they're sturdy and they are easy to remove with a lens hood on. Perfect.

                                  The Sensei Center Pinch Snap-on Lens Cap works smoothly and and appears to have the same specs as the brand name offering at a great price. I've tried other generic caps and they have not held up. The Sensei cap springs (often the first thing to go in lens caps) look like they'll hold up for the long haul.

                                            In my opinion these lens caps are much better than the ones that come with the product. You can squeeze the center to snap on or off, which makes it easy and more durable. I just wish it had a string to hang off the lens.

                                                  Great service. We just order the wrong size. Will be reordering soon.

                                                        Works as well as Nikon's and costs less. Works better than Zeiss.

                                                            Costs add up fast with photo/video equipment so best save money when you can. This is a great product with a cheap price.
