Smile What size rear cap?

Hello, I have the Olympus 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 kit lens and have lost the rear cap. The LR-2 cap fits the adaptor I can attach to the lens, but I am selling my lens and am keeping the adaptor, so need to get a cap to fit over the bottom of the lens. If anyone can tell me the size (internet searches keep saying LR-2 but this is too small) or has a link I can buy from a UK stockist, it would be much appreciated.

Re: What size rear cap?

Is this lens a 14-150mm or 40-150mm, but either way it is either Micro Four Thirds or Four Thirds mount. The former uses the LR-2 rear lens cap & the latter the LR-1 rear lens cap. Here is one source for the LR-1 (if that is what you need). https://www.amazon.co.uk/Olympus-LR-.../dp/B00B71QD0C

I hope that helps.

Ooops, yes, that should have read 40-150mm. Looks like the LR1 is the cap I need. Many thanks!

Just an update to say the LR-1 arrived and it fits beautifully. Just what I was looking for.
