    Don't think it's that expensive.. I don't remember it's anything more than $20 from Cathay.

    I think Pringle supplies a lens cap every time you buys one.



    Also can turn the tube into a lens:

    Yeah.. I think that's more like it. I bought a few caps (77mm, 72mm, rear cap, body cap) a couple of months back from CP and I still have a 72mm in the wrapper. Price tag is around $12.5. Just bought a 52mm cap a few weeks ago from Max Photo at AMK Hub was only $5.50.

    So as hacknet mentioned, get it from CP, NSC, Max Photo or Lords. MS Color doesn't seem to carry. TCW carries 'fake' ones (at least for rear cap) and sells them at almost the same price Cathay sells the real ones at.

    Sim Lim Sq 5th Floor. There is a camera shop that sells things quite cheap. May be able to find your lens cap there. Can't remember the name of the shop but pretty helpful staff.

    It IS expensive when the market price is less than $20. Whats that got to do with you if TS wish to save a few dollars more?
