    Does anyone know the size of the lens caps for the Canon FD 35-105 f3.5 Zoom? Thanks.

    Assuming we're talking about the same lens, it takes a 72mm filter. I like the Tamron center-pinch type lens caps. They cost less than many others anyway.

    Dave,
    That is the one. Any idea of the size of the rear cap?

    And for reference, the outside diameter of the front end of the barrel is 75mm if you're looking for a slip-on cap. If you have the bayonet lens hood, the center-pinch caps can generally be installed/removed without removing the hood, that's why I like them.

    As far as I know, the FD rear caps are all the same, after all, that's the lens/camera interface. The official one is a sort of top hat shape with the flange notched to bayonet on to the lens. There's a cylindrical section protruding out of the back end of the lens that I just measured at 48mm, but it isn't very long -- maybe 4 or 5mm -- for a slip-on cap to grab.

    That lens is one of the best investments I made in FD series stuff.

    Hope that helps,

    DaveT
