This lens cover was exactly what the BVP-70's Cannon Lens needed to protect it from both physical abuse and unwanted exposure to bright sources of light. The lens cover fits snuggly and will not be easily "bumped" off of the camera. It is just what I needed.

Just bought a 200-400 and bought the lens cap to replace the sack that Nikon provides. The cap is about 1/8 inch too big and kept falling off (what's the point?) until I added a layer of tape.

Fits the Olympus 300mm f/2.8 4/3 lens.

Comments about Kaiser 120mm Push-On Lens Cap:

It's a tight fit, but can be put on and removed with one hand. It's made in Germany.

It works, but it was not quite what I expected. The picture has a ridge on the sharp corner, which makes it look like it's made of hard plastic. The actual cap is made of more flexible stuff and has a smooth rounded corner.

    Comments about Kaiser 120mm Push-On Lens Cap:

    If anyone wondered, this hood is PERFECT for Sigma 500mm f/4.5 EX DG APO HSM. Not advertised as such, I took a risk. Pleasantly surprised, as the Sigma 500mm only comes with a velcro-cloth wrap-around. (It fits the lens, not the hood).

      bought it to use on 200-500 Nikkor lens for added protection when lens hood is in reverse.
      with some slide modification it serves the purpose.

          Product was purchased to replace the soft cover, provided by Nikon, on the Nikon 200-400mm VR lens.

          The cap fits, however it is very loose. I had to build up the interior edges with several layers of electrical tape. Gaffers tape will also work, but I did not have any available

              I bought this lens cap as a field cap for a Nikon 200-400 VRII (instead of the bag Nikon provides that goes over the end of the lens). I saw the cap mentioned in a review article, however, the cap is slightly loose and will easily fall off. I think the problem will be easily corrected by putting some tape on the inner edge of the cap making it a little more snug.

              Comments about Kaiser 120mm Push-On Lens Cap:

              To keep from having to use Nikon's cumbersome lens cover for the 200-400 f4 lens, I bought this Kaiser lens cap. Great idea, poor fit, falls off easily. I'll need to shim up the sides with something so it will stay on the lens. Not really that big of a deal since I keep the lens in my Domke long lens bag when I'm not using it so a lens cap is just another layer of protection. At least the price wasn't too bad.

                I bought this cap to use on my Nikkor 200-400 zoom lens instead of the hard to take off bag like one that comes with the lens. It's just a little too big but with some masking tape in the inside it works ok. Probably works well on other 120 mm lens' but I cannot make a judgement on that.

                This does fit the 300mm f/2.8, but once it's on, the hood doesn't fit, so you can only use it without the hood - even if the hood is reversed for storage.

                                    I have used them now for over two years, and they still look and work like when they were new. Highly recommended.

                                      Comments about Kaiser 120mm Push-On Lens Cap:

                                      For anyone who is fed up with the fussy leather cinch-up lens cover that comes with Canon's 300 f/2.8 or 400 f/4 DO lenses, this slips on and off much more easily -- and it fits tightly enough to stay on. (It doesn't go over the huge hood, of course).
