I love the humor on this thread. It is obviously a slow year for Canon bodies ;)

Most folks seem unaware there is a model of the Swiss Army Knife that has a lens cap remover in it. There's a pincer device that folds out, slips down into the lens hood and pinches the cap off quicker than you can say Swiss Bank Account! I think the knife is the "Photographer" model -- less than $100.

How is the dynamic range of the back of the lens cap? Any improvement with banding or light-leak issues?

Hi nda, what is the need behind upgrading, is it aesthetics, ergonomics or mechanics, eg like body, rear lens caps, where early ones are said to create more dust?
Cheers, Graham.

These are much easier to remove with hood attached. It's a pain in the #@& to reach inside the hood of a 70-200 and take the non-pinch lens cap off. Won't matter to most, but it has me cursing myself often.

That's a much easier solution than the stack of 10 UV filters I've been using to get the side pinch cap closer to the hood opening...   :o

Hahaahaaa! I will have to give that a try!

Yes, but you need to check it in if you are flying... ;)

Not so -- a feature of that particular model is that it can only be seen by photographers. At least that's what I've heard. I don't have one myself.

forget the lens caps, I'm just drooling over the lenses in your pic.   As you can see, mine are not as impressive as yours  :D

What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

it might be a good thread to start: take a photo of all your best equipment on the worst background with the worst camera you can find in the worst lighting possible. That's always the problem, isn't it? If you want to take a photo of all your good stuff then you've got nothing good to shoot it with... I'll do that when I get home.

well done me  ;D
