Sensei LC-58 overview

  • 1Description

The 58mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap from Sensei is a front lens cap with a squeeze, spring, and snap-on mechanism. It is easy to put on and take off, especially when using a lens hood, and it stays on. Lens caps protect your lens from scratches, fingerprints, and the elements when the lens is not in use. It's always good to have a spare in your camera bag, too.

    Sensei LC-58 reviews

    58mm Center Pinch Snap-On Lens Cap is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 177.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lens caps, ever. Sensei has produced the best design for lens caps I have ever used. I know it is hard for most people to be excited about a lens cap, but trust me when I say, these are the best lens caps ever. Simple design and true ease of use make these caps the pinnacle of the market. Once you buy one for a replacement you will find yourself logging back on to B and H to buy Sensei replacements for the rest of your lenses. The center pinch design is nothing new, of course, but take that and couple it with the robust build and you have a whole pack of winners. The price compared to the Canon replacement caps makes the choice an easy one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such a good value that I bought a spare Use this lens cap on my Canon XA10, and it fits perfectly inside the lens hood. Very easy to put on and take off and is relatively secure. Hard to tell how durable it will be, but the odds are I will lose it before it breaks. Compared to lots of lens caps that cost upwards of $, the Sensei is a bargain. I can buy two... lose or break one... and still have one to use. And I save money. Thanks B&H, you guys carry the best products at good prices... and you stand behind what you sell. I have been shopping at B&H for years... decades actually... and you have maintained your service, quality and integrity.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better options are available Solid, quality material & economical, but could be better designed. The pinch tabs are shallow and perpendicular to the cap rather than angled. This makes it unnecessarily awkward to grip, especially with the stiff spring mechanism. Easy to drop. The catch ears are too long, extending beyond the rest of the cap when in place. This can block a closely machined hood from sliding past the cap, defeating the usefulness of the pinch-cap. For the Olympus m4/3 75mm f1.8 lens, I purchased the lovely metal Vello hood & this cap as accessories. I ended up subsequently purchasing the Olympus 58mm pinch cap to replace this cap, and it works much better for that lens/hood combo. Looks nicer too, although the anonymous branding of the Sensei can be an asset in some situations.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not an improvement over Canon cap This center pinch snap-on cap is billed as easier to use with a hood. Not in my opinion. The spring-loaded ears protrude from the rest of the cap and make it hard to put on a lens when its hood is in place.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this to have an extra lens cap while on vacation. I liked the method of connecting the cap to its strap by adhesive better than the way the cap that came with my camera did - by threading the cap-strap through a hole in the cap. Then I started using it... after a few hours of using my camera the adhesive connection came unstuck and the lens cap actually broke. The 2 pieces that slide when you pinch them together popped out with the spring mechanism. Glad that I had my original lens cap with me, which worked just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have a lens you need one of these I put it on my lens and have not taken it off, and don't need to. It sits there out of the way easy to remove when i'm ready to shoot and easy to replace when i'm finished shooting.It has added benefits such as it protects my lens from damage when travelingor in and out of bag. If you use multiple lens it is great to have one on each lens. O' and you don't have to hold it in your hand if you put on a lens cap keeper to keep it attached to the lens when shooting. I have not found any thing that I don't like about this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update to Review - includes Customer Service This is an add-on to my previous review. The 5-stars are for Sensei's customer service. Not long after I posted my original review, I was contacted by B and H to see if I was open to being contacted directly by Sensei, which I accepted. Sensei contacted me via e-mail about my issues with their product, which I sent. Their response came from a person, with an email address, phone number and open door offer to contact them directly with additional input or inquiries. Their timeliness, customer concern and personal connection alone is enough for 5 stars. But, on top of that, they offered to send me a new lens cap. Hopefully I will not have the same problem with the replacement. Because of their excellent customer service, I will consider another Sensei product in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap, Effective, But Far From Perfect The lens cap is solidly made, and the material is of good quality. The center pinch design for a lens cap this size (58mm) doesn't seem to work very well for me though -- the center pinch ledges are too close together since the lens cap is so small, and the springs used in the lens cap is quite strong, so it is hard for my fingers to use the center pinches when removing the cap. Using the regular outside ledges works well though. Last but not least, the lens cap was a touch too big for my 18-55 kit lens. The diameter of the cap is a fraction bigger than the 58mm UV filter I have on the lens, so the edge of the cap is not flush against the lens filter. The OEM cap that I lost did not have this problem. Still, the cap fits nice and snug against the filter -- it's just that the outter edge isn't flush.
