      If you have a lens without a lens cap your looking for trouble with your expensive gear. An unprotected lens will hurts your pocket and emotions if you let your $600.00 lens get scratched or worse. Always replace it if you lost it, It only cost $5-$10 bucks, make that investment and continue taking those breath taking City shots.

            I just needed a lens cap for my 18-55 lens. It's a little smaller than I though but for it's price it will do.

                I like this lens cap better than the original that came with my camera. This cap fits snug and holds in place well. I don't have to worry if it's going to fall off my lens.

                            Got this lens cap for an old konica lens. size wise it fits. but it is not seamless with the edge of the lens rim. considering the price, it's 4 stars.

                                I lost my original lens cover to my Panasonic DMC-FZ50 (new 2006). B&H Photo phone assistance helped me find this product, and at a very fair price. Fits and performs just like the original. I like that it snaps on. Now I need to make sure I don't loose it again.

                                    I purchased this product because the lens cap on my 35mm SLR had been lost. It was a slip on, not a snap on like this one. I am very pleased with this snap on lens cap. I am confident that because it is a snap on, it will not slip off like the one that was lost.

                                                It works. It's completely average. Not a bad thing though. Lens caps really can't be that incredible. Was a little tight on one of my 55mm lens's. It's somewhat expected. Overall it's fine.

                                                            I actually prefer this to B&W's cover, as the squeeze tab access is a bit better when a wide lens hood is shrouding it a bit. Great value.
