Don Zeck C8 overview

  • 1Description

The Don Zeck Lens Cap is unique in the world of lens accessories. It is the first lens cap designed with an ergonomic handle to help you both place and remove the cap. The advantage of this is obvious.

This cap can be used with a long hood in place. During such times, it can be difficult to use a traditional "snap on" lens cap. Using this particular, cleverly designed cap means that you can set up your long lens (that has a deep hood) and leave the cap on. Yet, when it comes time to actually shoot, all you need to do is grab the neat little handle, pull the cap off and you're ready to shoot. No more having to remove the hood or awkwardly reach inside the hood to try to unhook the cap.

The cap is held in place using six "O" rings that create a tight, perfect fit. In addition, the unique handle will compress to an ultra thin 3/16" when you store your lens in its case.  The "O" rings never touch the lens surface and will not damage your lens. This cap is a thick design and will guard your optics from the damage that we all fear with long (or short) expensive lenses.

Cap can be mounted on the lens while the hood is in the shooting position or in the stored position
Handle allows a firm grip on the cap so that it can be easily installed
Can be used with or without the factory lens hood
An interesting alternative to the traditional "sock" hoods that come with longer lenses

    Don Zeck C8 reviews

    C8 Lens Cap for the Canon 500mm f/4 IS Lens (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to Canon Cap Much more quick and convenient to install and uninstall. The lens is easier to handle with the Don Zeck cap. The cap DOES NOT touch the glass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fits perfectly. Easy on and off. Canon should make this cap standard equipment for the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Requirement to protect your lens The lens cover that comes from Canon does not do an adequate job in keeping dust off the lens or offer protection while installing or removing the lens hood. Since the factory lens cap is so hard to add and remove and falls off easily most people do not use it once the lens hood is installed. However, the Don Zeck lens cap inserts like a typical lens cap and can be left in place when the lens hood is being installed or removed offering the highest level of protection for the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Should be a standard accessory to the large lenses. Only issue is fitting it makes it difficult to put the lens (mine Canon 500mm F4 IS II USM) back into the Original Lens Case. Otherwise super.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens-saver!! This cap was the prfect solution to saving my 500mm lens from accidental scratches, and even from unwanted dust. It is very easy to use and very convenient. I love it.
