    Wanted to Buy: 112mm Len Cap (Push-On, Screw-In or Clip-On)

    I am looking for a 112mm lens cap to fit my 50mm Fujinon GX lens. I have searched high and low over the internet but although I can find mention of them those that do (B&H for example) are showing as discontinued or Out of Stock.

    I do not mind if it is a Push-On, Screw-In or Clip-On and am willing to pay a reasonable amount for one along with shipping costs to the UK.

    Hoping someone can help?

    Ed Bray.

    Ed, over the past few weeks I've made lens caps for many of the spurios non standard lens I own often from Bakerlite lids off old chemical bottle/jars. I'll see what I have this afternoon.

    Your other alternative is to make a lens cap from card and then cover it, Tomosy has a section on making them in his book on Restoring Classic Cameras but there's articles online. These can match the big Schneider lens caps in terms of quality.

    Hi Ian, Thanks for your comments, I never even considered the DIY route, I'll see what I can come up with.

    Have you tried this site? http://www.filterfind.net/Caps.html At the end of the list is a Kaiser slip-on that is 120mm ... might work if you wrap some foam weatherstrip (one side with peel-off adhesive) around the inside of the cap's rim. "Big Box" stores here (e.g., Lowe's / Home Depot) sell a variety of weatherstrip sizes.

    Ed, it turned out the largest Bakerlite top was around 10cm diameter so too small.

    The DIY approach works very well, I'll be making a few over the next couple of months for some brass lenses. Here's a good link.
