    Default Help!!! I lost a rare lens cap!!!

    Where can I find those lens cap that you just put onto the lens like the way we wear a cap, it covers the lens from the outside.

    I think it's very hard to find such cas, but I really need one.

    Ya, just went there today, they don't have.

    What I mean is that the cap covers the lens from the outside unlike the normal clip on type.

    you can get those from the camera shop at the basement of the Adelphi. It's the one in the middle, NOT Ron's Camera, which is in the corner.

    BTW, these caps are used more on LF lens nowadays...

    Yes, but the problem is that I borrowed the lens, and I haven't told the owner yer...

    So, I don't know whether I should buy that...
