I am horrible about losing lens caps for my Olympus OM-D when I’m out in the field. A couple of weeks ago while hiking in the Smoky Mountains, I lost the lens cap for the Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm Macro lens. This was the second Olympus lens cap that I have lost.
The Olympus lens cap on Amazon was 7.95 + 7.49 shipping. This seemed like a lot to pay for a small piece of plastic.
I searched Amazon for off brand replacements and had no luck. I finally had to search by the diameter of the lens cap – 46mm. I ended up buying a replacement Snap-on lens cap by Digital Goja. The price was $4.99 + free shipping.
The lens cap replacement kit from Digital Goja comes with 2 replacement lens caps plus a microfiber cleaning cloth.
The quality of the lens caps seem the same as the Olympus model an now I have a back up lens cap in my bag. The 46” lens cap also works for the Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 lens.
