And its a good thing I did, because a few months ago after a long trip, late-night return, I grabbed my camera bag (Tamrac 5788 Evolution 8 Photo/Laptop Sling Backpack Bag (Black)) and tossed it to my shoulder anxious to get in the door. For the first time in my life, one of my lens, my favorite (135mm) went crashing to the ground in the dark because a side pouch was not secured.
#%@#%(#*@#%! At first glance, all looked okay. Upon further review inside and in the morning, the lens cap took a direct hit and broke. Not a single mark on the lens - pure luck of the fall.
Which led me to this quick, center pinch replacement. Totally converted now and have replaced all my caps to center-pinch Canon caps.
For one, with the video, I shoot with a teleprompter glass/hood. Reaching into the hood to grab the old caps (sometimes it sits here for days, so I cap them) - a pain to find and release. Pinch-caps, no problem.
Also, shooting with lens hoods (stills/videos) and now a large matte box (videos) is it SO much easier to reach into the center and pinch/pull.
All other things being equal, I have to say - I think these center-pinch caps even look better, they look more rugged (although probably not) and they look more serious.
Whatever your reason or your need, you won't be disappointed in these genuine Canon caps.
I have replaced all of my old Canon lens cap with these new Canon lens caps. The pinch-cap design is a much better design. Once you buy this, you will want to throw out all of your old lens caps, as I have done.
• It is easier to put on the lens.
• It stays on the lens more securely
• It is not free.
I wasn't expecting it, but this lens cap is a serious improvement. A couple advantages are:
Thicker/taller - Compared to 3rd party caps, this one stands a bit taller, making it easier to grip from the sides (you can squeeze the edges or the center to release it)
Center-squeeze - One of the nicest benefits is that this makes it easy to attach/detach from a lens when using a lens hood. With the previous style, you wouldn't be able to have a lens hood attached and still be able to remove or attach the hood.
Quality - I've used Sigma, Rocketfish and other 3rd-party branded lens caps with a similar look, and the quality here (albeit a weird thing to say about a lens cap) is noticeable. I've had cheaper ones break on me, be hard to release/put on, be loose or just have other issues.
The only other difference I've noticed between these and the 3rd party ones are that some of the 3rd party ones allow for a "lens leash" to be attached (to keep the cap hanging from the lens so as not to lose it), but I'm more than happy to lose this benefit in place of the others gained.
