    Smile Front lens cap for SONY Alpha

    Dear All,

    Would you kindly suggest where I could by the front lens cap for Sony Alpha 18-55mm kit lens. Mine is broken and when I called up the Sony service center, its not available here and they have to ship it from Japan and will cost ~S$30 and 2 weeks to deliver. The product is this:

    Is there any shop in Singapore selling the same? Even a duplicate one will do. I just need to cover the lens.

    Thanks in advance,

    Karikodan

    Lens caps without Sony logo are available in many shops for a few bucks. Just get one according front diameter. Most kit lenses have 58mm. If you need the Sony logo then check MS Color, for a start.

    U can look to ebay.

    And what is the thread size of your lens. You just need to go to the shop and tell them you want size so and so front cab... and normally they would have if the size is common (and it don't come with a brand on the cab itself).

    Most probably OP would carry some.
