I've been frustrated for a long time by the standard Nikon rear lens cap (LF-4) where there are three positions where the cap drops down on the lens bayonet mount, but only one that will allow you to screw the cap on securely. Yes.. you can line up the dot on the cap with the one on the camera, but for the cap it's black on black. When I went to order some Nikon LF-1 caps I found that they were no longer made. Luckily the Sensei rear lens cap is just like the LF-1. With this cap, you just set it down on the lens mount and turn CCW until the cap is secure. Now when I'm trying to make a quick lens change out in the field, the lens cap is the least of my problems.

It serves its purpose. It does fit on my Nikon lens but it does not screw on/off nearly as smoothly as the genuine. The first time I put it on the lens, I thought it was cross-threaded but it's just how it fits. If you can find the genuine Nikon for a close price, I would go with that. But if the Nikon is WAY more expensive (like it was when I bought) then this is what you want.

Yup its definitely a rear lens cap

By elevensixty

Comments about Sensei Rear Lens Cap for Nikon F Lenses:

Its a cap that on the rear of the lens... (exciting review here) Fits fine, gotta say though, I prefer the cheapo push-on rear caps because I can do it with one hand which is easier, faster, and less likely to drop gear.

      Comments about Sensei Rear Lens Cap for Nikon F Lenses:

      You can tell this is pretty cheaply made, and fit with my Nikon 50mm f/2.0 lens isn't very snug, but it does what I need it to do.

                    Of course I tend to lose anything that isn't attached to something large, like a rock, car or house. So, naturally, I have lost several rear lense caps for my Nikon DSLR. I ordered three Sensei caps and they fit perfectly, snug and easy to remove. I am in the bush alot and always fear to contaminate my rear lenses. These covers solve that problem. Stock up for future needs.

                    Fits properly, screws on nicely, and it's important to have backups just in case. At this price why not?
