    Very good build quality.

    It's not possible to tell from the pictures but the plastic feels far nicer and sturdier than the old side pinch canon lens caps or any lens caps I've ever handled, for that matter....Read complete review

    It's not possible to tell from the pictures but the plastic feels far nicer and sturdier than the old side pinch canon lens caps or any lens caps I've ever handled, for that matter. The pinch mechanism works as one would expect.

    Another property of the cap that is lost in the pictures is the thickness. They are noticeably thicker than the old side pinch caps. The thickness allows the pinch mechanism to be further from the lens (as a safety precaution, I assume). Granted, noticeably thicker, in this case, will not make a difference since they are still quite thin.

    Of course, the usual benefit (being able to manipulate the cap with the hood attached) apply when upgrading from the stock canon caps.

    I bought this cap to replace the stock canon cap on my Canon 50mm f1.4. I've done the same for my Canon 100mm f2.8 L macro (67mm). This review may be applied to both caps as they are identical save for the diameter.

    New is not always better

    It serves the purpose but the center button release just does grip on the lens like the old caps. It serves the purpose I guess.

        Comments about Canon E-58 II 58mm Lens Cap:

        This great little innovation in lens cap technology has freed me from at least one frustration. I no longer have to remove my lens hood to remove or replace the lens cap. Its absolutely wonderful.

          Comments about Canon E-58 II 58mm Lens Cap:

          I had purchased a Canon 50mm 1.4, and it had the original cap that you opened from the outside.
          This was fine, but when I used a lens hood I could not take it off and put it on without removing the hood.
          This solved those issues completly, always nice to have pinch caps.

                            I actually ordered this product to replace a lost lens cap. I thought this version would be a little more secure than the previous type I had, but it's almost easier to remove this one (without meaning to) than my previous one. That said, it fits the lens just fine and is a sturdy plastic.

                                        Would give it 5 stars except for one thing -- wish Canon would make this in hard rubber rather than plastic. Then it would be less likely to scratch the attached filter when the clamps open and close. It hasn't done that yet, it just feels like it might because it sits right on top of the filter. Otherwise love it and prefer it over the old style cap.

                                                I really love the new style "Center Pinch" Lens Caps. They fit with the lens hood on backwards (for storage), or with the lens hood mounted in it's normal position and allow for the lens cap to be removed with the lens hood in place.

                                                      Well, it's a lens cap so I use it to protect my lens. What's great about it is that it protect my lens. My only complaint is that you have to take it off to take pictures.
