Good lens cap as a replacement – 49mm Digital Camera Lens Cover Reviews

posted by Ulongh on 04/26/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Cheap price. Locally, I could find one like this for at least 5 USD.
- Good build quality, does not feel cheap like some other similar lens cap (non-original ones).
- Centered-pinch styled made it easy to attach and detach, especially when compared to the side-pinch ones.
- Mechanic spring is solid and sturdy, should be last long for many years of use.
- Nylon retaining strap is included with the package, this prevents loss of lens cap.
Cons:
- None so far, especially when considering its price.
Other:
- I bough this lens cap because I loss the original one that comes with my KONICA MINOLTA DIMAGE A200 which has 49mm in size.
- This product is good as a replacement in order to protect the lens and/or filter from dust and dirt.
- It would be perfect if there is a printed camera logo/brand, for example, CANON, NIKON, OLYMPUS, SONY, KONICA MINOLTA, PENTAX, etc.
Bottomline:
- Several legacy manual focus lenses also have 49mm front thread, for example, OLYMPUS ZUIKO OM 50/1.8, OM 50/1.4, OM 28/3.5, OM 135/3.5, etc. This lens cap would be useful for these lens owner alo, in case of the original one have been lost.
