Met Expectations Flawlessly

By tmbhort

Comments about Canon E-72 II 72mm Lens Cap:

While on vacation, the lens cap to my Canon 28-135mm lens was inadvertently pulled out of my pocket. When I got back to the hotel room, I realized that I had lost the lens cap. That evening, I went online to B&H and ordered the replacement lens cap as the original lens cap is no longer made. We arrived back home Friday evening and on Monday the lens cap arrived in the mail from B & H. Perfect fit!! In addition, great service from B&H - thank you!!

Comments about Canon E-72 II 72mm Lens Cap:

I needed a cap. I looked locally to no avail. My last resort was B&H which should have been my first choice. You sales person's response was friendly and at the same time professional.

Next time B&H gets the call first.

        Comments about Canon E-72 II 72mm Lens Cap:

        This product is truly grounbreaking. Before I got a lens cap my lens was uncovered. I don't know how I lived without it. Now my lens is safe at all times. The only thing I can't figure out is why all my pictures are so dark now. I am shooting on the highest ISO with the longest shutter times and the pictures all come out just black. Maybe someone can help me out with this?

            Comments about Canon E-72 II 72mm Lens Cap:

            It's a lens cap. It says 'Canon'. It pinches in the middle. I've been using another brand cap that pinches in the middle. My OCD will be happy to have a Canon cap on my Canon lens. Just wish that Canon had made this years ago.

                Comments about Canon E-72 II 72mm Lens Cap:

                I accidentally left my sigma cap for my sigma 17-70mm lens in Vietnam. I wanted to buy a sigma brand at first but somehow, it was more expensive than a canon brand. Also twice as much. I figured since all my gears are canons so why not. Anyhow, long story short, I like it. It does the job and it does it well. I do like the newer design than the old canon lens cap. However, i do noticed something. if I have don't have the polarized filter on the lens, the cap snap on smoothly and it fit tight. if I do have the polarized filter on, the cap does not snap on as smooth. But over all, I don't have a problem. And for the price, i think around[$], its a deal.

                  Comments about Canon E-72 II 72mm Lens Cap:

                  This new design, enabling you to remove a lens cap by pinching the center instead of trying to find two little tabs on the circumference, is a great improvement. Especially useful when a lens shade is on--much easier to slip it past the lens shade and securely snap it onto the lens threads. Canon's OEM caps are extremely durable--they don't break under heavy use.

                          I lost the original cover that came with my Camera. The center clip is great for keeping fingers away from the glass and pops in place easily.

                                    This lens cap is great. I highly recommend upgrading any lens caps you have to the "center squeeze" type. It is wonderful to be able to easily take the lens cap on and off even with lens hoods installed.

                                        Not much to say - if you have a lens with a deep hood and have trouble gripping the former version of Canon's lens cap, this one is for you. You can easily grip the latches because they are near the center rather than at the edges of the cap.
