    Lee RF75 adaptor covers - help needed

    I have been using the Lee RF75 holder and filters for my LF lenses as I find it a lot less cumbersome for my smaller lenses (52mm filter size and below), but as I prefer to leave the adaptor rings on I would like to have an effective cover to the adaptors. I have contacted Lee Filters in the UK who have confirmed they have no intention, due to too little interest being shown, in making their larger plastic caps available for their smaller adaptors.

    I am trying to find somewhere in the UK where I can get suitable caps to fit and was wondering if anyone could suggest somewhere I could go. Lee's Jon Young tells me that a 75mm Kaiser or B+W filter cap will fit with a little tape inside, though I suspect that a 72mm slip-on filter cap might fit perfectly?

    Can anyone help?

    If you have one or two old established camera stores in the neighbourhood you might check them out.
    Many of those places have a box with orphaned lenscaps and they are cheap too.

    I doubt that a 75mm cap with a wrap or two of tape is going to be as small as a 72mm cap. That's a lot of tape. If it was as straightforward as using the 72mm cap I suspect he would have told you to use a 72.
    SKGrimes would be happy to help you out if you have deep pockets.
    If you are slightly crafty there are instructions on how to make lens caps in Tomosys book "Restoring Classic & Collectible Cameras"
