    Rollei SL66 lens cap? (UK)

    Hi,

    Does anyone have any idea where I can buy a front lens cap for a Rollei SL66 80mm Planar (Bay VI fitting)? Preferably in the UK.

    Thanks,
    Ed.

    No lens caps on ebay at the moment... plenty of rear caps and body caps though! Any more ideas? :-(

    You could buy an Bay VI / 67mm adapter (B+W, Heliopan) and use an ordinary 67mm lenscap.

    Camera shops in London ????

    One of the memberes of the SL66 usergroup ????

    In Holland Transcontinenta (+31-252-687 555) used to import Rollei, there should be shops in Germany who could have them, but I am in Brazil right now very bussy this week with an asignment and a time diference with Holland of 5 hours, by the time I am home it is almost Midnight in Europe......

    In German it is called a Objektif-deckel.

    Good luck, if you cannot find one, send me a PM and I will look for you when I am back in Europe by the end of August.

    I got mine from this upplier http://www.fotopartner.de/static/info/startseite.htm in Germay.
    When you call them up be sure to sit safely in a chair before they tell you the price.

    The front bayonet is the same as with the 600* cameras. Just a tip.

    Until you win the sweepstakes you could look for a plastic jar top with a similar size and make a Slip-on cap. ;-}

    Thanks for the tips. These caps are like gold dust!

    I'm getting a Bay VI adapter ring for my Lee filter system, so I think I'll just use a Lee cap on the filter ring for now.
