I agree. It's cool they made a more functional design, but they could have done something to make them a little more unique and special. For all the trouble and talk this will cause, you'd think they'd make it a bit more interesting looking. They look exactly like Nikon caps now.Wow!
Sorry but looks like a Nikon cap... only ugly
What the hell is Canon thinking?!
That pinch caps are largely viewed as functionally superior? They could have been thinking that... ;-)
I couldn't care less how they look. A more secure cap that I can use with a hood on? I think I'll be purchasing a few of these.
Functionally, I see why this is a good design. Visually though, I think Canon could have afforded to distinguish their lens caps just a tad better since it is sort of an image for the company.
