Workmanship and tolerances are great.
Sparkling Pix "Don"
There is no stress placed on the extending or collapsing lens, nor can the petals accidentally contact the glass lens element.

I love this lens cover, makes it so much easier than juggling a removable lens cap.

My major concerns in buying this were with the quality and fit of the product. This item is of high quality, and has been accurately designed. Its fit and finish are complementary with the MX-1; does not look at all out-of-place. The spring mechanism works great. Have no qualms using it as a almost full-time replacement for the standard lens cap. I was concerned that the petals might extend slightly into a wide-angle photo, but checked this closely and could discern no problems.

PROs
* Fits external lens barrel very well. Friction fit, but tight enough that I can't ever see it accidentally coming off, yet can still be removed by hand. Have worn in cargo pockets without any slippage.
* Door tension seems perfect: opens and closes smoothly, without hampering lens extension.
* Does not interfere with zooming or focusing in any way.
* Design and finish are complementary with the MX-1.
* Workmanship and tolerances are great. Petals quickly open and close without binding, yet it is difficult to see any gaps between the edges when closed (maybe 1/64 inch?). I wouldn't hesitate to use this in almost any environment

CONs
* Adds about 1/4 inch to depth of camera. For me, since this isn't a truly pocketable camera, this size increase is not very significant.
* Protects lens from a hard, direct blow by an object less well than the standard lens cap. But you would probably have to ram it directly into some hard object to have any problem. Glancing blows, or carrying in a case with other objects should present no problems.
* Obviously will not provide as good a rain or dust seal as the standard cap. However, the MX-1 is not advertised as being weather resistant, and I wouldn't normally be using it in harsh environments. Anyway, the tight tolerances on the fit of the petals should help, although I would probably switch to the regular cap in bad weather.

Overall, this cap has exceeded my expectations in every way.

Good, tight fit. Smooth operation. Looks great.

BUT... it makes the camera too big to fit in my ever-ready case.

When I'm shooting a lot, I can put this on and leave the lower half of the case on the camera. But the upper half won't close, so it just has to be left behind.

So, just be aware of this limitation.

I received mine with one of the three springs loose. I found that out when I attached the cap to my Pentax MX-1 and turned on the power on and off a few times. Instead of all three doors opening and closing smoothly, one refused to function properly.

I had to carefully take the Rainbowimaging cap off from the camera and after taking a close look I noticed that small steel hinge bar that hold the door in proper position had slid off somehow. I realigned the problem door and slid back in the bar back in place and the door was now functioning properly.

Very happy now that the cap work as it should be. The original cap require you take it off the camera prior to powering it up. If you forget to take off the cap then the camera refuse to work which means you may miss a photo opportunity.

Though previous reviews read quite favorable, the unit I received was nearly impossible to slip over the lens without scary-hard forces. Since it did not fit or seat easily, I used sandpaper in the inside edge to widen the inside diameter. Now it will properly seat over the lens. The packaging came with a little scratch-off 'seal of authenticity', which makes me wonder if Amazon shipped me a knock-off version?? Once installed, unit works fine. It does add about 1/4" of length to the lens.

Bought this cap since taking the original cap on and off was a pain. The cap has worked perfectly since day one. The fit of the cap is tight enough that I don't worry about it falling off but not so tight that I can't get it off when I want extra protection using the RainbowImaging 58MM filter adapter. This cap gives decent protection without having to even think about it. I would recommend this to anyone that has this camera.

I couldn't live with the dangling lens cap, but was hesitant to purchase this. My hesitancy was unnecessary; the lens cap pushes on easily, but it stays on -- it has never come off. It opens easily when I turn the camera on, and does not block the view at all.

I got this because I always hate dealing with the lens caps whether or not they're on a string. Took a little bit of force to apply. I just stuck it on loosely and pushed it on against a flat surface till it was on. Works well but on one occasion one of the doors got pushed in from the pressure of being in my pocket and stopped the camera lens from coming out. I just pried it open with my fingers and it was fine. Brings me to the other con, it makes a fat camera fatter.

Fits well on the MX-1 and does a nice job protecting the lens. Very convenient product. The only con is it's thicker than the stock cap, but that one is a pain to keep track of.
