        Comments about Sony ALC-F49S 49mm Front Lens Cap:

        I bought this because I had a filter added on my RX100 to enhance my monochrome photography. The filter is from Sony (VF49MPAM) as well. The lens cap falls in a bit tight and gets caught in the threads, probably because of the type of spring system in this cap. It is a nonindependent plastic spring. I tested it on a Topicon as well as a B&W 49 mm filter to exclude issues with the Sony filter. It was still tight. I also have a generic lens cap that I bought a long time back from BH and that is smooth and dandy. The generic one made in Japan and much less costlier than the Sony's has independent metal springs. So I guess I paid more to get the Sony label on my cap.

          After 20 months of taking it off and putting it on my Zeiss Sonnar E 1.8/24 Za lens the lens cap's spring lost its zing. It fell off somewhere, quietly, apparently. This is a perfect replacement. Snappy.

          Sony lens cap does the job

          Comments about Sony ALC-F49S 49mm Front Lens Cap:

          I had a choice : a generic or a Sony lens cap. I chose the latter. Glad I did. Unless I lose it again.

                  If it isn't actually 100% real Sony lens cap it certainly looks and works like it should be.

                          I lost my Sony lens cap and needed a replacement cap. I was looking for a new Sony cap vs a aftermarket cap. I found what I was looking for at B&H!
                          Shipped out within a day or two also!

                          Thanks B&H!
