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 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.

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.

Can you leave a filter on the lens and still use this auto lens cap?
Asked by: Sandor
The Leica Auto Lens Cap does have room to leave a filter on but if the filter has a very thick frame it might not work. It is suggested by Leica to make sure it is a thin frame filter.

What protective filter is thin enough to be left on Leica's 109 lens when using the auto cap?
Asked by: Anonymous
The COKIN Pure Harmony 43mm UV filter is an ultra thin filter. It is the thinnest one made and the ONLY one that works perfectly with the auto lens cap. The leaflets close fully on top of the filter. The only problem is that this filter is hard to find as I believe COKIN has stopped making it in the 43 mm size.

What material is this made of (i.e., metal or plastic)?
Asked by: Douglas C.
It is made of plastic material, a very good plastic that looks like metal. It works very well
