77mm Snap-On Lens Cap is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 243.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Ring to Unite Them All These are genuine Nikon Lens caps and the same you recieve with any 77 dia lens. All of my lenses have step up rings of 77mm and are capped with one of these. I have two Singh-Ray filters that together cost as much as a good lens, so it was way more sensible to attach 52/62/67/72 to 77 mm step-up rings to all my lenses and then keep attaching or removing the filters I use. These caps snap on to my Heliopan rings. These caps will not work on most or all thin profile filters as they do not have threading on both ends. I reccomend these over generic caps as their quality and finish is superior to the other junk out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens Cap for Canon & Zeiss too! Bought 2 Nikon caps to replace my 77mm Canon lens cap and 58mm Zeiss cap so that I could remove and replace the cap without having to remove the lens hood. This cap can be gripped near the inside of the cap as well as on the edges. Zeiss lens caps are designed like that too, but I can get a much better grip on the Nikon cap than the Zeiss cap. On a trip from San Jose, CA to Las Vegas, NV via plane, taxi and foot, neither of these caps ever came off unless I removed it. I love shooting with a Canon DSLR, a Zeiss lens and a Nikon lens cap...the best of everything!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Improvement Over Earlier Lens Caps I converted a 72mm lens to 77mm and needed a 77mm lens cap for it and bought this. It's very well made and works almost perfect. It would be perfect if the cap was a little thicker so my fingers could get a more secure grip on the middle parts where you hold it to squeeze it to take it on or off of the lens. I've never dropped one of these new style lens caps, but I feel I need to concentrate when I am holding it so I don't drop it. The 77mm cap is easier to hold than the 67mm cap, BTW. Anyway you look at it, it is an improvement over the old style Nikon 77mm lens caps that were really good in the first place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nikon Lens Caps These are my all purpose caps for everyday, everywhere use. I have dropped one camera striking the cap without breaking it. They are tough enough. My only issue with these caps is that they will pop off when you pull them in and out of a bag sometimes, and they will pop off easily enough when rubbed or bumped occasionally. I don't have a suggestion for fixing that problem other then maybe an improvement in the pressure of the tension system and maybe some more aggressive bite to the teeth that hold it into the filter threads. Otherwise, its a good product and does what it is intended to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Personal Preference I replaced the snap-on lens caps on my Zeiss ZF.2 lenses with Nikon caps. Perhaps it is user error, but I've had difficulty with Zeiss lens caps attaching easily and staying put. I have had far fewer attachment challenges with Nikon lens caps. Since I shoot with Nikon and Zeiss lenses, I know that when I'm in the field I won't be finger-fumbling with various lens cap mechanisms. Whether it is one of my Nikon lenses or a Zeiss, I can easily and quickly remove or replace a lens cap without looking, even with thin gloves on. One less thing to get in the way of a positive photography experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use this on my Canon lenses I'm a Canon shooter, but really dislike Canon's lens caps because they are not a center pinch design and are almost impossible to attach/detach when you have a lens hood on. So I have been looking at different center-pinch caps. This is the best I have found so far. I have also tried the Tamron and Olympus caps, and prefer the Nikon. I've got fat fingers, so I'm especially interested in a center pinch design where my fingers don't slip off the center pinch bits. The Nikon caps are easier to grip than the Tamron caps. The Olympus caps look to be the same design (but aren't quite), and have just slightly less grip than the Nikon caps. But the Olympus caps cost much less, and are almost as good, so it's kind of a tossup. I will probably instead go with the Olympus caps, and glue something grippy to the part the fingers grab onto. This would be 5 stars if the price wasn't so crazy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST GET!! If you own a third party lens I recently bought a 12-24mm Tokina. At first I was just going to live with the one that comes with the Tokina... but before purchasing it, I borrowed my friend's lens. Needless to say using the Tokina lens cap was like trying to stick an old post-it note on your computer monitor. The Nikon lens cap both fits and stays on a lot better. The only difference I can see is three layers of threads on the Nikon to the two on the Tokina. That one extra threading seems to make a world of difference. BTW... Sigma lens caps are just as problematic. Bottom line... get one if you have a third party lens. P.S. - Curiously, the rear lens cap for the Tokina work much better and has better coverage than the Nikon equivalent.
