Where did you get the Canon E-82 II lens cap? I've been looking for the 82mm variant for ages but no online shop had them in stock...

Cool ... but at $ 100, I'll probably wait for the Chinese variants  :P

I bought a couple of the 82mm off ebay for $2 each and received them yesterday and they seem to work ok but I can't compare to original.  I am curious and will buy an original too, maybe in 77mm and compare...

It's because we are used to seeing the same pinch-caps with Canon logo, but from dirtcheap off-brands ;)

I recently ordered various clip lens caps from China, and the quality is vastly different - some models are trash, don't flip out & fall of the lens, and some are very decent and I cannot imagine the Canon original to be better. Problem is that you cannot tell one from the other when ordering via ebay, but I'm willing to experiment given the ridiculous prices for Canon hoods and clips.
