Thank you for great service.

Fits great, has a cord to attach to camera or strap so my wife or I will not lose another lens cap. can use it on all of our 58mm lens with our Canon T1i.

Size Name: 52mm Verified Purchase
I ordered a pair of 52mm caps mostly for the Cap Keeper feature, as I'm always losing my lens cap when I go hiking, which is frequent.

The cap looks good and fits very well and snug, though the appearance is slightly different than what is shown in the pictures.

First of all, the center piece is now more of a horizontal bar similar to the Nikon OEM caps instead of the circle shown in the picture. I actually prefer the updated look to what is shown in the pictures here.

The second difference is more important, and that has to do with how the cap keeper attaches. Instead of there being protruding tab as shown in the pictures, the cord is now threaded through an inset in the side of the cap itself. This would, it seems, make it less susceptible to breaking off (I have no idea if this was an issue before). On the down-side, since the cord does not come pre-attached, it's a little tricky to thread the first time. The opening is very small and I had to use a small paperclip to grab the cord as I threaded it through. That's a one-time thing though, and you'll never have to repeat it, and it wasn't really that hard, I just thought I'd note it.

Overall though, the price is right, and it works just as you'd hope and expect.

Size Name: 58mm Verified Purchase
I purchased three different inexpensive 58mm caps from Amazon at the same time: (1) this cap, (2) the Zeikos ZE-LC58 58mm Plastic Snap On Lens Cap (Black), and (3) the 58mm Snap-On Universal Lens Cap. All arrived relatively quickly, but this took a few more days than the other two.

Note that the picture shown with this listing is slightly misleading. The tether with this cap is not connected to an outside loop, at least not in the copy sent me. Instead it connects through holes in the cap as in the slightly less expensive "58mm Snap-on Universal Lens Cap" mentioned here. This makes it more difficult to connect, see below.

This lens cap, although a little thicker than a flexible press-on, works well with my Olympus 58mm filter-size lenses. It has a larger gripping surface than the default Olympus caps provided with their lenses, and so stays in place. The clamping mechanism has more travel than the Olympus caps and so is slightly easier to install and remove. The cap and its clamp appear well constructed and should be long lasting.

This and the, "58mm Snap-on Universal Lens Cap" by Generic which, at the time of this review, was somewhat less expensive, have similar functionality and both include a tether. However, the clamping mechanism on the "Universal Cap" is slightly harder to squeeze than on the cap reviewed here.

Two minor issues: (1) it is somewhat difficult to install the tether, as others have also noted, and which unfortunately does not come installed as it does on the "Universal Cap" (2) as the tether is made of string, it can occasionally catch under the clamping mechanism if its not free to hang.

I would rate this cap equal in ease of use to the Zeikos cap.

Size Name: 77mm Verified Purchase
This is indeed a great price for a lens cap this size, especially since it is center pinch.

However I found it doesn't seat as well as a Canon or Nikon lens cap. It takes only a little pressure on the tabs to make the cap come loose. I tested this on both a Nikon and Tokina lens.

However I also ran highly scientific tests to see how well it stays seated overall-- shook the lenses are hard as I could, and also gave them a HARD flick of the finger and they stayed put.

So my only drawback is the fact that once you touch the tabs, these caps are not especially secure. You might knock them off accidentally. However, as stated it does seem that they are immune to hard taps NOT on the tabs, and won't come loose otherwise.

I just wish there was a more confident feeling in the way these seat over all. But for for the price I don't regret buying them. Most of the time I'd be using these with a lens hood so they are unlikely to get bumped in the first place

This lens cap is better quality than the original Canon that came with our SX20IS. It fits snug, solid construction, and the pinch grip is easier to use. It comes with a lens cap strap, so no more lost lens caps! (hopefully)

Beware if you are shopping for a lens cap for the Canon SX20IS. I noticed that some are advertised as fitting this model camera, but actually only fit it if you have a UV lens or converter which makes it wider (58MM) - the Canon lens without any additional filters is 52 mm.

This lense cap will fit any 52mm lens, any model.

Highly recommend it.

i agree with the other 2 reviews here - decent product, does its function, and is super cheap.

I just wanted to comment that the string included DOES work (at least it did on mine). But just note that the way it attaches to the lens cap is NOT as shown in the item picture (i.e. there is no little hook on the bottom of the cap for the string). Rather, there are two little holes on the side of the cap that you loop the string through to secure it. Hope this helps someone.

I am using the cap on my Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 for my Pentax K-x. The reason i gave the product 4 stars is because it doesnt fit the lens perfectly, but definitely fine enough to protect it. I would highly recommend this product to anyone else.
