Thread: Canon lens cap for Nikon lens

  1. #1

    Default Canon lens cap for Nikon lens

    I bought a 2nd hand lens without a lens cap, since the Nikon one is more expensive, wonder if the canon one would work?

    Thanks

    Canon, Tamron, Sigma, ... as long as the size fits. No problem... it probably just hurt the feeling of your Nikon lens that's all...

    can always get brandless lens cap from shops at CP/ peninsular plaza too, so long as they are the same thread size. bring your lens to go try try...

    Thanks
    Be careful, using 3rd party product will void your warranty .

    If the filter thread size is the same, should be no problem.

    canon lens cap design is pretty crappy actually. better to get the tamron one.. much more secure. because the cap cant accidentally open as the catch is protected.

    But generally.. all caps which can fit the same filter size will work. Go for the 3rd party ones if you wanna save on the money.
