I borrowed my boss' camera and returned it. My boss asks me "where's the lens cap"? I say,"there was no lens cap" and he says "Oh yes there was". Feeling guilty that I lost the lens cap' I found the exact cap at B&H Photo[...] it fit perfectly. A couple of days later my boss found the original lens cap in his home. Story of my life.

Great standard Lens Cap, if Pricey.

Had to replace the cap after losing it at the shore. It was a bummer because it was the original cap on an older lens.

Had to replace the cap after losing it at the shore. It was a bummer because it was the original cap on an older lens.

This cap is great. I love the deep recesses on the front so I can grab it with my fingers in the dark and don't have to fumble for the knurling around the edge.

It's pretty expensive for what it is, a couple of pieces of injection-molded plastic and a couple of springs for tension.

          Comments about Nikon 52mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

          It is exactly the same snap-on that comes with the camera. Surprisingly lower prices then most of the other sizes. It is of course best not to be lost. But free shipping by B&H made it a bit less painful.

                Nothing to say about it, it does what it is suppose to do. I bought it to replace the cap from an old manual 35mm f/2.

                            I keep loosing these lens caps but can't bring myself to buying a cheaper cap. The original Nikon caps work so well, don't want to try a third party cap.

                                            I prefer this type of lens cap as it's easier to get on and off if you're using a lens shade that tends to block access to the front of the lens.

                                                            I lost my Nikon lens cover and this was the perfect fit to replace it. It was very inexpensive and fast free shipping. So happy with my purchase!

                                                                Unlike older caps the Clipping handles on front instead of edge make it easier to mount on lens especially when hood is on lense
