      I've been frustrated for a long time by the standard Nikon rear lens cap (LF-4) where there are three positions where the cap drops down on the lens bayonet mount, but only one that will allow you to screw the cap on securely. Yes.. you can line up the dot on the cap with the one on the camera, but for the cap it's black on black. When I went to order some Nikon LF-1 caps I found that they were no longer made. Luckily the Sensei rear lens cap is just like the LF-1. With this cap, you just set it down on the lens mount and turn CCW until the cap is secure. Now when I'm trying to make a quick lens change out in the field, the lens cap is the least of my problems.

      It serves its purpose. It does fit on my Nikon lens but it does not screw on/off nearly as smoothly as the genuine. The first time I put it on the lens, I thought it was cross-threaded but it's just how it fits. If you can find the genuine Nikon for a close price, I would go with that. But if the Nikon is WAY more expensive (like it was when I bought) then this is what you want.

                  This is a lens cap. It fits the lens, stays on and protects the lens. That's exactly what it is supposed to do.

                                            Comments about Sensei Rear Lens Cap for Nikon F Lenses:

                                            Of course I tend to lose anything that isn't attached to something large, like a rock, car or house. So, naturally, I have lost several rear lense caps for my Nikon DSLR. I ordered three Sensei caps and they fit perfectly, snug and easy to remove. I am in the bush alot and always fear to contaminate my rear lenses. These covers solve that problem. Stock up for future needs.

                                                              Fits and works like the original. I switch lenses a lot and like to have an extra on hand.

                                                                          I had difficulty finding a simple nikon rear lens cap. However, on my visit to NYC I went to B&H to look at a camera and ask if they had the lens cap I needed. I expected their response to be no. But to my surprise it was yes. Thanks B&H for my simple lens cap.

                                                                          It serves its purpose. It does fit on my Nikon lens but it does not screw on/off nearly as smoothly as the genuine. The first time I put it on the lens, I thought it was cross-threaded but it's just how it fits. If you can find the genuine Nikon for a close price, I would go with that. But if the Nikon is WAY more expensive (like it was when I bought) then this is what you want.
