Lens cap on 12-40mm lens
4 months ago

Just a quick note... I'm used to my lens caps having squeeze clips on the outside of the cap.  The 12-40mm lens requires you to reach under the outside ring and squeeze the tabs.  I keep forgetting this (muscle memory, I guess) and this morning I pulled the outside ring right off the cap.

Fortunately, I didn't lose the little springs and so on so a bit of glue and I was back in business.  But if this should happen on the road you may not be so lucky.  So if you are switching lenses to the 12-40mm just something to be aware of.
