Used this type on and old tamron, every single time I took it off or put it one it slipped and dropped onto the front element. Useless. The canon ones I place to one side and lift up or down on the other side, gripping the firmly before and after lifting. But then again, when was the last time I used a lens cap? 6-7 years?

Why didn't you just aim the lens down?

I wish the pinch was horizontal and not vertical with the lettering.  [ducking]

design dictated i guess, you would end up with a small logo or off centered

I like these lenscaps. I don't like / struggle with the current lenscap of Canon.
I guess it depends on the size of your fingers how easy/convenient the current lenscaps are. For me not. I used to own a Tamron and I liked its lenscap. Never had problems.
If the new lenscaps are less than 10 euro, I may consider replacing all the lenscaps of my lenses.

They are going for about ten bucks each.   Hey hey!   ;)

States for EF-M lens. Hmmm, would a EF and EF-S lens use a different cap?    I doubt it but not sure.   And if they're $10, that's reasonable.

Because then the lenscap flew sideways off a small bridge and was never seen again :D

It's a gift from the gods! *opera sings*

This is the most relevant release canon has had in 2012. Hands down.

Canon, now with Tamron lens caps!

If we can borrow Tamron lens cap tech, then lets also borrow Fuji's non-bayer sensor tech and get rid of the anti-aliasing filter.

About time! Now I can have Cacnon written on my caps instead of Tamron.

Ah yes - many a true word.  I have a Zeiss 18mm lens which is a lovely lens and cost a lot of dosh - unfortunately - don't know how, the pinch lens cap dropped a spring - £25 offer from Zeiss to replace the  cap which I have declined.  Finding the right sized spring is no easy matter, perhaps the Canon caps may be cheap enough to cannibalise? Silly really but I wouldn't now buy another Zeiss lens.

I have used similar cheap Chinese a couple of month and they are very convenient with deep/long hood on, just attaching "nails" are too short. With Canon quality they will be perfect

Now it is revealed. Canon desperation for new profit centers!

I expect official Canon T-shirts next, pinch neck design, of course.

Seriously, thanks, at long last! The rim pinch things were so primitive and ineffective I was ashamed to be seen with them!

[I'm surprised no one has suggested that Nikon owned the patent on this -- and it has now expired!]
