    I have a Fuji GA645 and do this sometimes. Not as much as when I first got it though. I bought a hood for it and now only use the lens cap when storing it. When I take it out to bring somewhere the cap comes off and stays home. If I'm worried about exposing the lens to the elements I keep the camera in a bag for protection but when taken out to shoot no lens cap at all, ever.

    Wow! That's a great idea! I've tried to think of how I could make a "cap reminder" like that, and I think I'm going to steal this one.

    Yes, lenscapes and darkslides have been my forte also! I too own only one rangefinder, and I have a medium format w/ darkslides that is a real learning curve for me. I read on Apug somewhere to tie a red yarn around my darkslide handle, and it works great.
    I suppose one could tie red yarn to your RF lens cap!

    I've solved this problem by never keeping the cap on. I've settled with using a filter and a hood!
