    The fit of these factory caps is better than anything you'll find aftermaket, the price was fair [...] The only improvement that could be made is if canon made a center-pinch cap as standard equipment.

    Functional unless using lens hood

    This is the lens cap that comes with nearly all Canon glass. The only problem is you can't actually remove the stupid thing from the Canon 50mm f/1.4 if the hood is on. Nearly all aftermarket and Nikon lens caps have a center and outside pinch method and those work much better. Replacing all my canon caps with aftermarket (I refuse to use Nikon ones) ones saves your fingers and sanity in the field.

              Comments about Canon E-58U 58mm Snap-On Lens Cap:

              I lost my cap to my 50mm 1.4 at a crowded outdoor event when I was traveling on vacation and needed a replacement for my lens. I had purchased other products from B&H before so I didn't hesitate to go back to them to purchase my replacement. This cap snaps perfectly onto my 50mm 1.4 and it works perfect. No complaints whatsoever. Plus, B&H ships their products so quick I received the cap within 4 days since I placed my order. I'm a bit of a brand freak so I had to have the original Canon iten.

                    Works great. I just wished that the canon caps had a better system for removing them, since I find it a bit hard to remove the cap when the lens hood is on. Nikons for example have a better system

                                  Same as OEM. Can't say more than that. It's the right size for those that want to put a lens cap on the G12's filter adapter. It makes the G12 look like miniature SLR!

                                    My daughter lost her cap and wanted a canon origional.
                                    Thanks B&H for stocking it at a reasonable price.

                                            Fits exactly like the original. Hides the embarrassment of losing the one that came with the lens.
