Wow.

$15 each PLUS shipping!! B & H usually ships small stuff like this free.

I've endured the inconvenience this long.... For that kind of money, I'll keep enduring.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

I heard the mark II pinch caps are just around the corner, and have better sharpness and color.

Does this mean new lenses will have these as standard?

1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Main advantage is with lenses using larger hoods like with telephoto lenses.  With some Canon lenses, the hood needs to be removed or slid back to access the edges of the cap to remove.  Convenience factor.

Yes. They are the new standard issue, but only for newly released lenses.

I hear that they are working on an IS version of these lens caps that costs twice as much.   :P
