Nice cap that stays on.

nice small odd sized cap. needed it for a vintage lens. stays tight and doesn't fall off like some OEM caps do.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Doesn't stay on.

I bought this for my Leica Summicron 50mm lens. The cap comes off too easily, and it would drop off when barely grazing my arm while I would have the camera slung over my shoulder. I had to return it for a refund. One of the cheaper caps on [@] works much better.

Good enough for an oddball size

By

from Sacramento, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

After inheriting a couple of Leica lenses sans caps I went on a hunt for a decent replacement cap that doesn't cost $30 per ea and works with aftermarket filters (the Leica press-fit one doesn't stay on with filters that aren't exactly the same outer diameter as the lens). My current favorite aftermarket lens caps are made by General and are easily had online for roughly same price as this Adorama cap. Unfortunately, they don't come in the oddball size of 39mm which is the distinguishing selling feature of this piece. The only other redeeming quality of the Adorama part are good springs which grip well, unfortunately when engaged the press tabs are flush with the outer rim of the cap making it difficult to remove by feel only. To confound this, there's a cap lanyard attachment boss on the edge masquerading as a release button which I recommend removing with a sharp knife. In summary: if you need a different size I recommend General caps, if you must have one in 39mm this will be better than nothing.

Doesn't fit well, pops off easily

By

Granted, maybe my Lumix DMC-LX3 isn't exactly 39mm. It's possible. But what I know is that this lens caps barely stays on. It's very loose and you can see that it doesn't even hug the lens all the way. The push-in nubs on the side actually don't sit flat to the inside face of the cap so that it CAN'T sit flat fully onto the lens. The push-in button/nubs themselves don't extend past the outer edge of the lens so that they are hard to push in when you do want to remove the cap. It's a rather awkward design — to have buttons sticking out of the side like they do. So in the end, the caps falls off once in a while because it's so loosly held on. But it's hard plastic and the buttons seems like they would last a while, so if it fits your lens well, it would be a fine lens cap for the money. They ARE very inexpensive after all.

Good Lens Cap

By

from Jakarta, Indonesia  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I bought this as a replacement for the original brass cap that came on my Leica Elmarit 90mm M lens (dropped that one in the ocean - Darn!). This one works perfectly, never pops off, and keep my glass protected. Very pleased with the purchase.

Questions about this item:

STEVEN B  will this cap fit on a typical Leica 39mm M lens?
STEVEN O  It worked for me. It's just a standard, 39mm lens cap. I put it on a 90mm focal length leica M lens that I measured to be 39mm in diameter. Hope this helps.
