Cheap and decent 55mm lens cap – 55mm Digital Camera Lens Cover Reviews

posted by SkyCAM on 06/13/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Pretty cheap and fits all 55mm lenses nicely. Good replacement for much pricier original manufacturer lens cap counterparts. The overall build quality is alright. The plastic is sturdy and looks like it could withstand a blow to the lens.
Cons:
Material is all plastic even the spring mechanism. The extra cord is useless in my opinion and is even troublesome if the camera is put into a bag.
Other:
The cap fits tight on all 55mm Sony system lenses I own.
Bottomline:
After one month of heavy use the lens cap is still doing its job nicely. I've taken it off and put it on again probably 200x times. Only time will tell how long the plastic mechanism will last. So far I'm quite happy with the quality and the price was very competitive.
