      Lost the cap on my Canon 35L. This replacement snaps on easy and tight, perhaps a bit better than the original.

          Comments about Canon E-72U 72mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

          This is one terrific lens cap! I can't say enough about it. It is round and black and goes well with my camera's colors which are also black. The roundness is important to me because my lens is also round, making for a really good fit. Elliptical lens caps have always proved unsatisfactory to me. The cap even has my camera's brand name embossed on it, which makes me feel pretty special when I'm walking around.

          I am a semi-professional photographer and need to be able to snap this cap on with either hand, at a moment's notice. This is the first I have bought that can be snapped readily with both left and right hands. It's also very reliable and only fails to cover my lens when I mistakenly order the wrong size.

          B&H is up to its usual high standards in offering this cap. Because I lose them all the time, they can count on me to come back again and again.

              Comments about Canon E-72U 72mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

              The E-72U Snap-on lens works very well. It's easy to put on and remove with one hand and snaps tight to keep out dust, sand and moisture.

                  I lost my 72mm Cap while on vacation and bought a generic cap through a camera store. I was not happy with the fit and ordered the 72mm by Canon. Best to stick with the Canon brand.

                                Comments about Canon E-72U 72mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

                                The 72mm Snap-On Lens cap by Canon is just like the cap that came with my 85mm 1.2L lens. Fits perfectly and is indistinguishable from the original.

                                        Before you leave the country, grab a spare.

                                              Don't mess around with [...] knock-offs. Get the Canon OEM cap and keep your gear in great shape. Helps with resale too.

                                              Its a lens cap. I lost another lens cap in my pocket/bag or while running in the woods and needed a replacement. Good Price works great
