    Fuji had these as standard when I used to purchase that brand.

    I have obtained one for £2.99 from my local camera store. All's well again and the lens is once more protected...

    Thanks for all your suggestions.

    Some third-party lenscaps protrude so much that, if you want to put the hood on reverse, you have to do this before putting on the lenscap. I have one like that for one of my lenses - it's a bit of a faff.

    A standard 58mm lens cap from any supplier will fit - you can pick those up from any photo shop & most web suppliers if you don't care about having the advertising on the front. (hey they should pay us for that free advertising that we all do !!)

    I tend to pick up plenty from 2nd hand shops when I see them as I moult them on a reasonably frequent basis.

    Look out for ones where the pinch is "inside" the lenscap if you leave the hood on a lot.

    There is a guy on ebay who may be able to help you, an Olympus seller but I cannot remember the exact name, ( at work ) but will find out when I get home. Expect to pay a lot more if you want Olympus written on it! Otherwise a standard cap should be readily available from many sources.

    Must be frustrating though.

    Hi John

    Not the best start to the week is it?!!

    Apart from eBay I'd try Warehouse Express (I got a lens hood through them in October) and I've noticed London Camera Exchange advertise quite a few Olympus lens caps too.

    Cheers

    Lens cap for 70-300mm Zuiko...?

    Hey All

    Checking through my kit this morning and I notice the lens cap for my 70-300mm is gone!! I checked the car, my bag, the vicinity here at home where my gear is normally stored, and through the rest of the house - but alas not, the lens cap has gone walkabout!

    Anyone know where I can get a replacement please...? Never bought just the cap before, are they available in the usual in-town camera stores or do I need to look on eBay/online...?

    Ta
Working...
