Dedicated to the Leica D-Lux 7 and D-Lux (Typ 109) digital cameras, this black Auto Lens Cap is used to protect your camera's lens when not in use. Its "automatic" design opens and closes as the lens retracts and extends, meaning the cap never has to be removed from the lens.

Good, but then...
It works fine. However, if you add a clear filter, then it won't close. So, you can either use this automatic cover or use a clear filter... bummer! :(
Never lose a Leica lens cap
Leica makes neat things, especially their Auto Lens Cap for D-Lux Cameras. Never have to take off or put on a lens cap again. The convenience outweighs the dust that may get on the lens, but what is a blower brush made for anyway?
I wish all lenses could have retracting caps like this
I don't know why I waited so long to get this cap for my Leica D-Lux 109, it makes shooting so much quicker and easier. If you have a D-Lux camera, just buy this and you will be happy.
So much more convenient...
I now no longer have the lens cap flopping around on the side when trying to take a photo
This lens cap eliminates the botheration of unscrewing the original cap, stowing it safely, taking the picture/s and then replacing it, sometimes numerous times when out walking in quest of photographs. This automatic cap removes that nuisance factor entirely. It means I take more pictures with less effort. Excellent product.
Nice but not perfect
The De-Lux 7 is my first Leica camera, and this auto cap my first Leica periphery (if you don't cxount the panasonic battery I bought which was $100 cheaper than Leica brand battery). Overall I like my Leica, wanting a light compact travel camera that shoots RAW bursts at a minimum of 10fps, and has a sensor bigger than 1. I have come from a pro set-up of Canon R system. I know cameras fairly well, back and forwards. I used to think this Delux camera was a panasonic with a red badge, but after using both Panasonic and Leica, this just isn't true. Leica has always been and perhaps always will be its own thing: its own unique lens look, its own ergonomics, its own designs. Considering most compact cameras don't even have threads on their lens ends, this compact camera does have filter threads. You can screw in a 43mm UV filter, if you like, or polarizer filters or NDs. However, if you buy and use this auto-cap, you CANNOT USE FILTERS. THIS WAS A STUPID OVERSIGHT. I took off TWO whole stars for not allowing even a nano filter. This is absurd. It otherwise has the wquality I expect, but at the price I miss the laser-etched Leica that the other cap has. I wish this one had LAZER etching too.
