    Yashica Mat 124G - lens cap?

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

    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 future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    If I remember correctly, I needed to put a notch in the sides at the center to provide clearance for the shutter and aperture dials. Simple 'carving' with an x-acto knife. If you aren't in the US, I imagine shipping would be a killer, but this design and basic style shouldn't be hard to find in Europe?

    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).
