                Comments about Canon E-72 II 72mm Lens Cap:

                The center squeeze snap-on design is so much better that the design with the outside mounted "push" buttons. The overall design seems to stay put better than the older design. I don't find the lens caps with this design to be dislodged in the camera bag (or carrying it outside). I especially like the way the lens cap releases when the lens has a hood in place. You can stick your hand into the hood and get to the release easily. It can be very annoying to try to get the classic our one off quickly.

                  Comments about Canon E-72 II 72mm Lens Cap:

                  Canon parts price (too high) for plastic, but they got the design right. It is a delight to use both by pinching the sides (like before but better feel) or pinching in the center (what's new here) and the grip is good as opposed to previous crapo center pinch copycats I've used that would slip away from your fingers. Result: despite the price I upgraded all my lenses to these new Canon center-pinch caps and I love them

                          Pinch caps are awesome. I don't know why they don't come with all Canon lenses. They're the best when using a lens with a hood.

                              This is a great cap to use when your lens has a lens hood. I honestly don't know why all Canon USM or L-Series lenses don't come with them. They're the best.

                                    I originally went in to grab the "Ultrasonic" lens cap for my 35mm f/1.4 - but this, I was told, was the new and updated cap that was available for sale.

                                    Well built and faster to use than the original, I would highly recommend this cap.

                                        Finally Canon updated their lens caps to the center pinch style. Much easier to put on and take off with lens hoods in place than the original style lens caps. More secure and substantially better built. Replace your caps - you won't regret it!

                                          I lost a lens cap for my go to lens, and I decided to try this style. It is so much easier to get off and on that now I want these for my other lenses.

                                                  It took them long enough, but we finally get a good quality lens cap from Canon.
