Lens caps for m43 lenses

Happy New Year everyone!

I'm looking for lens caps for my 12mm F2 (lost this in a trip) and 17mm F1.8 (broke) - does anyone have any spare ones lying around?

If not, ebay seems to be my only option (please let me know if anyone has any experience purchasing one there). Thanks!

Re: Lens caps for m43 lenses

Hi there Cowboy!

I haven't got either lens, but as a possible supplier have you tried Luton Cameras as they have often been mentioned on here as very useful for small parts for olympus cameras.

Personally I get the generic pinch caps for any lenses I buy without the lenscap, but they are mostly old OM manual lenses.

Cheers,

Ralph.

Hi Cowboy.

Unless you want the "Olympus" logo on your lens caps these :https://www.jackthehat.co.uk/46mm-le...ing-p-137.html should do the job without resorting to ebay.

Regards.

I have found that pamlizb on ebay is very good. Keen prices and very fast dispatch from the UK.

Re: Lens caps for m43 lenses

Bought a replacement for my 12-50 from Jackthehat - nice and cheap, good quality and free postage. Came in a couple of days which I can't complain about!

I'd recommend the product and the service

Thanks, all for the suggestions!

@Dave in Wales, may I know which ebay seller did you get your 99p lens cap? Seems too good to be true!
