      I got in a hurry and lost my lens cap for my GF-1 Lumix 20mm f1.7. The General Brand fits just fine and I don't have to worry about damage to the lens surface. You have to have a lens cap, period.

      This cap is listed as an accessory for the Canon G1x, but it doesn't fit the camera very easily... it will mount on the front of the lens, but not very smoothly or easily. OK for carrying as a back-up if you should lose the original cap, but not really very suitable for everyday use.

                    Not a bad lens cap, but it just barely fits the G1 X. I think I prefer the OEM cap, but if you want something with a lower profile this one will work.

                          Works just perfect if I could only remember to take it off before I try to shoot something. I'll get it soon or later. For five bucks you can't beat it.

                              It is for an old Yashica camera. It fits the lens perfectly. Hopefully it is durable, but time will tell.

                                  It fits and works well enough. For all those people who think it's a little flimsy--what? It's totally adequate, particularly considering the price.

                                            It's hard to get excited about a simple plastic lens cap, but after losing the 46mm cap off my 20mm pancake lens for the Panasonic Lumix GF1, I couldn't seem to find a replacement anywhere. Thanks B & H! The price is right, too.

                                                I was able to put my own brand on the Snap-On lens Cap (Acme). So when I dropped it, in a camera bag or the ground, I would be able to find it.

                                                Got this to replace one I had lost. It works but one of the side buttons gets stuck when squeezed so it requires some wiggling to lock into place. Maybe I got a bum one or maybe it's just cheaply made.

                                                  I bought this because the OEM cap was so beautiful I didn't want to lose it, so I wanted a cheap one for everyday use.

                                                  It's a lens cap, what can I say?
