Not a lot to say about this cap. It's black plastic and it fits in any of the four slots on my Cokin "P" filter holder (the regular holder - I haven't tried the wide-angle holder). If you put it in one of the three filter slots, it's easily inserted and removed with one hand. It's held in place by friction and doesn't fall out. If you put it in the slot designed for round filters (the slot closest to the lens), it's a tight fit and it snaps in place. It takes two hands to remove the filter from that slot. The cap is square and is the same size as the Cokin filters. If you are using another brand of filter that is longer vertically, the cap won't cover the entire filter. But as another reviewer mentioned, this is designed as a lens cap, not a filter cap. Works good.

Another reviewer mentioned that his didn't look like the one in the photo. I just received mine from Amazon seller "Spotlight Photo", and mine looks identical to the photo above. Not sure why his is different.

If you use the Cokin P series filter holder, this slides right in to protect your lens is you are moving the camera about and don't want to take the filter holder off. Saves some time, and might save your lens.

I just got this item, but owing to its simplicity I feel safe in saying that I expect it to work very well for a long time. Construction is plenty rugged enough and it fits well with the series P holder/mount.

I think the main advantage to using this item is that it balances lens/filter safety with speed in switching lenses (at least that's why I wanted it). You can quickly insert the plastic lens cap into one of the holder's outer slots and then drop the lens into your camera bag without fear of head-on damage to your lens or any other filters you may have in the holder. There is still a gap on the sides where dust could come in contact with your glass, but you've saved the time of having to remove your filters or the holder from your lens. Alternatively, you could fit the cap into the inner-most slot of the holder to achieve nearly as good a seal as you could get with an EOM's lens cap. In addition, the tabs on the holder will engage the cap and physically hold it in place so it's very unlikely to be pushed out of position (in the outer slots the cap is held snugly in place by friction). The added security comes at a price in that it will be more difficult to remove the plastic cap later, enough to slow you down a few seconds. If you're like me and want to be able to change lenses very quickly while minimizing the risk of damage to your glass, you should get this item.

Since I like to leave my Cokin filter system attached to my lens a lot, I figured, this would be perfect to allow me to keep it on there even more. Previously I had to remove it every time I had to put the lens-cap back on. With this, I can just slide the cap in place and be on my way. Very nicely done. When properly inserted, the cap seals off the front glass of the lens preventing dirt and objects from making contact with the lens. The fit is very snug and will not fall out.

As stated, the filter needs to be inserted correctly. If you don't get it in the right slot, it will leave a gap allowing dust and dirt in. So please make sure you seat it well. This is a bit tricky at first, but if you watch for it, you'll catch it.

For the price, it is worth it, even if the price is a little high. In my opinion, better to spend the price of this cap, than to repair the front element of your lens. ;)

The one I received does not look anything like the photo. In fact I wasn't sure I ordered it. It does serve its purpose to protect the lens with the P holder mounted.

Yes, this came exactly as advertised and fits on the comparable P series filter sets. While a little-spendy for a simple piece of plastic, it was exactly as advertised.

The Cokin P252 Filter Lens Cap for Cokin Series P filter holders is a good product that does it's job well. The lens cap replaces a traditional pinch and release lens-cap for your DSLR or other camera when used with the Cokin Series P Filter holder and it works well at keeping dust and debris off the lens glass.

The only drawback to this lens cap is that you really need to be looking at the camera when putting it on in order to line it up with the correct slot in the filter holder. The filter holder has 4 slots, one closest to the lens for the lens cap and three beyond that. The lens cap slot is thinner than the filter slots so it's easy to accidentally put the lens cap in one of the filter slots, leaving a gap between the cap and the lens for debris to enter. It's also easy to get one side of the lens cap in it's proper slot and the other side in one of the filter slots, again, leaving a gap. One needs to make sure that he or she has inserted the lens cap into the filter holder properly for it to be effective as opposed to a typical pinch lens cap with which it's easy to tell by feel alone if it is secured to the camera.

Filter cap works with the generic Cokin filter holders sold by other vendors. This is the genuine cap from Cokin. It does exactly what I need it to do.

OK, I'm giving this cap 5 stars because it does what it is supposed to. Beyond that, I wouldn't spend the money. When you are using the Cokin filters, you are using your tripod, which means you have all your camera equipment and bags. You are not just walking around shooting candid shots. The Coking system is somewhat bulky. This is necessary and not a slam on the system. My point is, usually when you are finised with your shot, you take the filters off and put them away. Negating the need for a lens cap to fit the mount. With this being said, yes, someone will find a time when you leave the filter on. If that's you, this is not a spendy piece of photography equipment and it is not heavy so buy it and have fun. The other benefit is that it doesn't take up much space or weigh alot.

I thought this would be more of a tight fit over the end of the lens when put in the adapter ring but not so. It slides into one of the filter slots well but leaves a gap between the lens and the cap. However, there is another slot that is narrower and makes a nice total cover where this could be inserted. Big mistake!! Accept the gap putting it in the closest filter slot because using the other will not allow the cap to be removed easily.
