can you still twist turn it a bit or totally stuck? happened to me once but it came off after wriggling it for awhile. for my case, it happens if i don't align the marking on the tamron cap to the orange dot on the lens, since the rear cap could fit the mount at several places.

If your mount is metal and the cap is plastic, why not just yank it out? Don't think the cap can damage your lens..

Try to push or pull the cap a bit when you turn it (in CCW direction), it should be able to come out.

I don't like those Tamron and Sigma rear lens caps, too hard to put on sometimes. I replaced mine w/ Pentax ones :)

Just turn it to the point u feel u can pull but it still stuck, Coz that point is the point where I managed to pull it out using abit more force. But its a little risky.

Tamron and Sigma lens cap very annoying, only can put on when in a certain alignment. If you put it on in another alignment without realizing, it will get stuck like what happened to you.

I just bought some Pentax replica ones from eBay. They don't work as smoothly as the original Pentax ones but for the price I ain't complaining. Mine do have the "Pentax" "Japan" wordings, but if you find one that looks like the Pentax one but doesn't have the words, you might have better functionality. The replica I got from FW works exactly like the original Pentax one.

The original Pentax one or the replica ones (exactly the same but without the Pentax name) are still the best. Perhaps a mass order is in order... :lovegrin:

Just to elaborate, I bought these ones which say "Pentax Japan" but are a little tight:

These ones that say "PK" might work better based on my previous experience. I'm not sure about this particular seller but I think they all come out of the same China factory :bsmilie:
