    Comments about Canon E-58 II 58mm Lens 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.

              What else can anyone say? It's a lens cap and works as designed. :-) After losing another one over a cliff, I purchased a couple spares of various sizes.

                    We lost one and got this one as a replacements, I like the center-squeeze snap-on type, works better for me than the sliding one.

                        These caps are a essential and for some reason the easiest things to loose! I ordered two. They fit my camera perfectly. I'm glad I have a backup too...

                                I lost my first lens cap this year, after almost 4 decades of photography! So I wanted to replace it with an original maker lens cap. I had found while hiking on a trail, a few years ago, a 58mm lens cap which fits but is not a fully functional cap as the cap needs to have the center-squeeze snap-on design and the one I found has the outside-squeeze design. This former style works to keep the lens hood on in the reversed direction but can't be used to cover the actual lens when the lens hood is in use.

                                The center-squeeze is necessary for this lens and lens hood but is not as secure as the outside-squeeze type. Since I prefer to always use a lens hood on my lens, I needed the replacement.

                                  Much better then the the caps shipped on Canon lenses. It's quick and secure and saving a second trying to get it off could mean the difference between getting the picture or not.

                                          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

                                              First came across this type of lens cap on my Vixia G10 video camera and all I can say is it's about time! So easy to get on and off when using lens hoods. I replaced all my old style caps with this type.

                                                I like the original cap that my lens originally came with better, but this does it's job. It stays on well and protects my lens. I lost my original lens while on a photo shoot in a giant mine, so there was no finding it. It was a relief to have something to protect my lens again.

                                                    I bought this as a replacement for the original Canon lens cap that came with my camera. It walked away during a family gathering where there were three similar cameras. I prefer this cap, which has a pinch release nearer the center of the cap than my original had; it's easier to grab. It looks great, works great, and I'm very pleased with it. Highly recommended.

                                                        We all know what a pain it is to try and get a lens cap off when he lens hood is installed. These make the task a breeze. I have replaced all my original lens caps with these.

                                                          Before Canon came out with these I used Nikon (yes, on my Canon camera) or 3rd party lens caps of this style on my Canon lenses, as this style really prevents fingerprints on your lenses and also makes it easy to remove/instal the lens cap when a lens hood is on your lens. These are well made. Now that Canon makes them I put them on all my Canon Lenses.

                                                              Great little lens cover - well made, fits perfectly. Though it is silghtly more expensive than others I've seen. I'm sure it's because of the Canon name on the cap.

                                                              I'd recommend without hesitation if the price is ok with you.
