55mm Push-On Lens Cap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit for the Canon G9x! After ordering a few different sizes, I eventually found that this 55mm push-on lens cap fits on my Canon G9x. The fit is snug and will not fall off. It takes just a small amount of effort to remove and I expect that it will loosen up over time. I also tried a 54mm cap, and that was definitely too small. I think the 56mm may be too large (but I did not test it). This should be a great product for protecting the lens from dust and overall damage. Mamy point and shoot cameras have the built-in metal pedal-style lens covers that are very fragile. This cap will help protect it. FYI, if you have a Canon G7x, the 58mm is the right size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution I recently bought the Sony RX100M3 and found the built in petal-style lens cover to be quite fragile. The camera is pocket size, but I was afraid I would damage the lens if I carried it in a pocket or third party camera case. Any pressure on the front of the lens when the camera is off causes a failure of the lens cover to open completely. A tap on the lens barrel corrects the problem, but I don't see that as a long term solution. This Kaiser 55mm push-on lens cap seems to be the perfect solution. It's very sturdy and fits snugly over the closed Sony lens. It is both inexpensive and expedient. Sony should have designed a more robust lens or included a lens cover like this with the RX100M3..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well as an RX100 IV lens cap! I, as many other here, had bought this as a lens cap for my RX100 M4, to prevent dust from getting into the little gaps in between the lens barrels. It fits snugly (if I had to complain, a little too tight) about the lens ring. My only gripe is that I have an ARCA plate (specifically one from 3 Legged Thing) permanently mounted to my RX100, and the lens cap does bump into the plate. The plastic is also a little soft around the edges, so it can bend (permanently) against the plate if you push on it hard enough or just leave it in a bag with other stuff like I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive Protection As others have mentioned, it works well for the Sony RX100m3 and others. Especially if you plan on keeping your camera inside your pants pocket or a coat/jacket pocket. That lens curtain needs protection from bumps,dust balls,and other objects that it might come in contact with. Since the cap does fit a little tight, I did taper down the inside edge of the cap with a Dremel tool to allow the cap to gently slide on and over the control ring creating a easy on..easy off and secure fit. If I do forget to remove it, when the lens extends it easily pushes it off without any error message from the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for a problem I own a Sony RX100 III, which is an otherwise quite-decent camera. However, this camera has a very flimsy automatic lens protector. I bought this lens cap, which fits perfectly over the RX100 III lens, to further protect the lens. The lens cap fits perfectly onto the lens base. I no longer have to worry about the built-in lens protector getting crushed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit on a Sony This lens cap fits perfectly over the control ring of my Sony RX 100 III. It protects the blades and keeps out dust. Just remember to remove it before you turn on the camera.
