This fits the lens that comes with most Nikon kits. If you need a replacement for your Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens this is it. The lens ships with D40 and D40x kits (among others) and should include this cap.

The easiest way to see which lens cap you need is to look at the number on the back of the cap, which pretty obvious but I almost overlooked it. Mine says LC-52 52mm. If you've lost yours you can measure the front of your lens. Nikon's more common ones are 52mm, 62mm, 72mm, and 77mm, so the only ones you'll have to measure precisely are the 72 & 77's.

The cap fits super tight if put on correctly, but sometimes, if I put it on quickly, it doesn't line up right on my lens. Somehow I've managed to make it peel up the inner plastic ring right by the lens where it says AF-S DX Nikkor. The impression it left is of the exact shape of the moving parts on the cap. The lens still works perfectly but I'm really annoyed. I can't take a star for that because this is the best cover I've ever owned, but it should be noted that double checking that it's on all the way is recommended. There is a picture of the damaged lens and back of cap in the "Customer Images" on the product page. :)

Amazon's list price is about 15 bucks and there are way cheaper caps out there, but these are really worth it, especially when you've got more expensive glass. Plus they sell for less than half that normally...just be careful with it.

It has been a life long goal of mine to write a review of a Nikon lens cap purchased from Amazon.

Today I'm fulfilling this goal. I'm quite pleased it is a positive review.

I would suggest you purchase at least 2 or more when you buy them. The shipping is the same and you know you will eventually loose this one too.

This is a genuine Nikon lens cap. It is not a knock-off. The center pinch design fits my Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras perfectly (when I lost it somewhere taking photos last weekend). Obviously, it CAN fall off (I lost mine), but maybe I didn't have it on 100% correctly. Sometimes if not seated perfectly, it can click off - which must have happened to me.

Please be cautious that you buy the right size. This is a 52mm, which will fit the kit Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens.

Nikon lens caps are the best on the market. The are hold securely, don't release accidentally, and are cheap, too. If you have another brand of camera, just use a marker to black out the Nikon logo :)

I bought this from cowboystudio, because it was slightly cheaper than the other available 3rd party vendors (amazon.com was not an available vendor). Turns out they sent a fake. I know it is a fake because I have other copies of this same lens cover and the lens cover sent by cowboystudio is clearly of lesser quality. It works but it is not as nice as a Nikon original.

Do not buy from cowboystudio. Choose some other vendor.

My fiance ordered this item for my camera. A Nikon D3000 and it says it is a 52mm lens cap, but it fit perfectly on my 55mm lens.

This item is exactly what I was looking for. An original lens cap that fits my Nikon D60!

I lost the lens cover for my Nikon 18-55mm lens during a backpacking trip, and I couldn't wait to replace it. For something like this, IMO, you will be best served by getting the name brand replacement rather than a no-name version.

I ordered this lens cover from Adorama camera, and they processed and shipped the cover very quickly. Plus, there was no shipping charge.

Since this is a Nikon product, I didn't have any worries about whether it would work, and it's doing a fantastic job.

There really is nothing like the real thing!

5 stars.

NIKON LENS CAP IS INCORRECTLY LABELED! THEY PLACED A COMPUTER GENERATED WHITE LABEL THAT READS LC-52 OVER THE PKG THAT READS LC-72. THE LENS CAPS HAS LC-72 IMPRINTED ON IT AS WELL...DUH! THIS LENS CAP IS TOO BIG. I AM FRUSTRATED WITH THIS SELLER! THIS IS THE 2ND TIME THIS SELLER HAS SENT THIS MISLABELED ITEM. THIS IS FRAUD! DONOT ORDER FROM THIS SELLER. I WAS CONTACTED BY THE SELLER VIA PHONE AND ASKED TO REMOVE A PREVIOUS REVIEW AND THEY WOULD CORRECT THE PROBLEM. IT HAS BEEN APPROX. 3 WEEKS AND NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE. THE SELLER MADE PROMISES THAT WAS NOT KEPT. THEREFORE, I AM REPOSTING MY COMPLAINT. PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTO I HAVE UPLOADED OF THE MISLABELED ITEM.

My mom and I both have Nikon camera's that take this size cap. One of usually loses or misplaces (luckily so far we've alway found them back) when we go places to take pictures, so we finally broke down and got a spare just in case one of us does actually lose our cap some time. The price is great and it was well worth it have spare and be able to keep the lens protected. The cap fit great and looks just like the caps that came with the camera/lenses
