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. 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.

    Bought to replace older model lens cap. MUCH better fit and stays on, not easily bumped off like the old one.

        As long as you know what size lens you are buying caps for, you can't go wrong.. If it came with GPS I would not have to keep buying them..

        Original lens cap was wore out and would not stay on. This fits as well or better than the original one.

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

              I think Canon now includes this type of cap on all it's lenses, but I have a few that did not come with one (L and 'regular' lenses). It's kind of amazing how much better this cap is, and how much I actually notice it. You'd think "it's just a lens cap". Nope. This makes my life way easier when I'm trying to change lenses on the quick. No more dropped caps because I can't grab the thing properly.

                                    I let my girlfriend borrow my Rebel T3 and she dropped it, scratched it up and lost the lens cap. This is an exact replica of the original and it fits just like it should. Could not have asked for a better replacement lens cap for my now scratched up, dropped Rebel T3. Highly recommended if you let your girlfriend borrow your gear!
