    All of my El Nikors came with caps and barrel keepers.

    Caps:

    Both manufacturers offer the same range of sizes.

    I went shopping eBay for cases for some of my enlarging lenses....OUCH ! The prices some guys want for some of those plastic cases are more than a bare lens. It's almost cheaper to buy a junk lens, just for the case.
    Well that puts me back into looking for caps for these uncased lenses.
    The only lens that I could "jerry rig" was the Componon-S 105mm, with the cap from a 35mm film canister. But is isn't a very good fit, the cap wants to come off easily.
    Looks like I'm going to be buying a lot of caps.

    Right- I was just about to say that dust can indeed "fall upwards"!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Those French, they have style!

    I've capped all my lenses, a phone call to Rodenstock was pleasant and very helpful in tracking down one cap. Those rear caps can be a bear to get off once the lens is mounted.
