        Comments about Canon E-52 II Lens Cap for 52mm EF-M Lens:

        Fits perfectly and is a good replacement for the original cap that came with the lens that I lost.

        Good price point too

          Well built... like the pinch-ability. Easy to put on or take off with the lens hood on.

                    This is an item that should have been made 50 years ago. It is really a tremendous help if you want to place or remove the lens cap while the lens hood is in place. I tried the third party caps first because of the vast price reduction over the Canon brand, but the center walls of the pinch mechanism are to straight and your fingers tend to slip off. The Canon cap is much easier to hang on to. This is an excellent product but far to expensive and much too late in coming . Nikon has been making them for years.

                          The center-pinch cap works really well with lens shades. this one is well built. 4 stars as opposed to 5 because of the price.

                                Comments about Canon E-52 II Lens Cap for 52mm EF-M Lens:

                                Canon parts price (too high) for plastic, but they got the design right. It is a delight to use both by pinching the sides (like before but better feel) or pinching in the center (what's new here) and the grip is good as opposed to previous crapo center pinch copycats I've used that would slip away from your fingers. Result: despite the price I upgraded all my lenses to these new Canon center-pinch caps and I love them..

                                          Finally, Canon makes a pinch-cap. It's better than the standard cap.

                                                          much easier to use than Canon's older caps, great product.

                                                          Finally!

                                                          Canon brings the "Center Squeeze" design lens cap to life! Hurray!

                                                          This lens cap works on more than just EF-M lenses! I bought it to try on my "Nifty Fifty" (or thrifty fifty as some would call it) and it works perfectly!

                                                          This is an absolutely must if you are in the market for a new lens cap. Or if you're like me and can't resist spending a B&H Gift Certificate.

                                                              So far so good - hopefully a little less likely to bump off since the release buttons are not on the edge. Also easier to remove/replace when lens hood is on.
