      Some may consider these very plain caps by General Brand, but they get the job done. I never have the caps come off accidently unlike my previously owned Pentax lens caps (slip-on). They work great and protect my lens. I have purchased more caps to fit all my lenses from General Brand because between the price and the functionality of them, they are fantastic.

      Not reasonable substitute for fuji x100s

      With my JCC filter holder, my Fuji X100s cap was falling off too often. Decided to compare this cap with free shipping to [*]'s Maximal Power cap recommended in a blog. This is just not as useful. Fit is not as secure nor is it as easy to put on or take off.

            Comments about General Brand 49mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

            I bought this cap to cover my 1982 Pentax 50mm 1.7 SMC. I lost the cap decades ago and stored the lense in an old Breyers yogurt container. It was the perfect size with a resealable cover. After 35 years the plastic is disintegrating and it no longer protects the lens. Lately I've been using the lens more and I needed somthing better. This cap will work perfectly. It has a strong grip, snug fit and inexpensive. I should have bought this a long time ago; way better than a yogurt cup.

            Comments about General Brand 49mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

            I'll give this lens cap five stars untried. I took it out of the package and it looks perfect. The 'pinchers' pinch as they should. I bought it to use on a Fuji x100s with the lens hood and adaptor ring but they haven't arrived yet. I will probably update this when they do. As far as the lens cap itself goes though, just fine.

                The Pentax 15mm comes with a lovely machined aluminum threaded cap that is ridiculously annoying in use if you just want to take photos. This General Brand is cheap, no fuss, and has great spring tension to keep it in place. I only wish they made a 39mm version also for some of my other lenses.

                                                  I got five of these (as primaries and spares) for my existing Minolta lenses, and they do the job perfectly. Cheap, yet good quality.

                                                      I've been looking for my original lens cap for 7 months now and decided I probably dropped it at a location thinking I put it in my jacket. It was time to replace it, it just wasn't going to show up... I went with this one because it was low-cost and looked like it'd do just what I needed, and let's be honest, if I'm going to lose another lens cap, it might as well be the cheap one this time... so far so good.

                                                              I ordered a few of these for my old Olympus OM lenses. They fit better than the original lens caps and don't fall off so easily. Not much else to say. They work fine.
