    Default Fa 31 lens cap

    Hi All,

    I just got a Fa 31 today and I must say it is such a well crafted gem!

    Wanna ask fellow owners do u guys replace the lens cap with a 3rd party one? Can advise me where to get one that fits?

    Thanks!

    I use a 58mm screw on hood and 58mm lens cap to replace the original cap.

    I prefer 58mm screw on-hood and cap cos to prevent scratching the inner side of the built-in hood if using just the 58mm lens cap.

    Thanks for the reply

    I would like to have some clearance between the cap an the front element, for easy removal.

    here's my version. I prefer black hood since filter also black.


    Can check these shops for hood & lens cap from Camera Workshop, Benro, OP etc.

    i actually using a hood as well for protection as i felt that the build in hood doesnt really protect

    The hood was given to me by a friend and the lens cap bought in Japan.
    I think Camera Workshop carries quality metal hoods.
