dont worry ... if you want, the center pinch caps can ALSO be used exactly like the old caps .. squeezing the 2 moving "holding things" from the outside edge of the cap. They protrude a little ... very easy to feel.
It really is best of both worlds. Center pinch and edge pinch are possible.
Absolutely ridiculous Canon did not make this switch about 10 years ago already.

* and now I also want to get lens hoods included with any and all new lenses in the future!
* And lens collars included with all lenses that can take one.
* And make the foot of those lens cooalrs Atca-swiss dovetailed by default.

It really would be very easy to improve functionality of many Canon items by 100% at very little extra cost.

I use them often as a beer coaster, the only thing worse than having a bride angry because you turned up drunk is having them accuse you of leaving 'beer can rings' all over the place.

Week and month... I guess there can't be any DR battles here so that probably another reason. And with the quips it is entertaining.

I wasn't going to bite, but apparently I lost my 77mm cap in an unnamed creek in the Columbia River Gorge over the weekend. Dang.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

If anyone is still interested, these things are now available here in Japan.  I picked up a couple at Yodobashi Camera in Osaka this week.  No, they don't have ultrasonic printed on them.  They are thicker than the old side pinch type, but not enough to make a difference (i.e. they still fit in my bags). 

I do use lens caps at times (when moving by train to different location, in museums that don't allow photography, etc.).  Guess I'll see if the center-pinch types were worth the 850 yen price in the next few months.
