    A lens cap for this TLR is not easy to find... not at all. :blink:

    Which generic caps might fit these bayonet filter front and, more important , what will fit on both lenses? I know the problem from Mamiya TLRs, the lenses are so close to each other that a sepcial cap is required.

    The early model Yashica TLR's used a metal cap thet bayonet mounted on the upper lens, was hinged in the middle and fit over the lower lens as well. The newer models utilized a one piece plastic cap that fit over both lenses simultaniously. A bayonet 1 or bayonet 30 cap will work on either lens. I normally have a square lens hood on my D (lower only) and dont worry about the viewing lens, althugh I have the original metal cap for it. the plastic cap may be easier to find, but most are long gone(lost).
