Nex body / lens caps temporary solutions?

I recently got a NEX-5 double lens kit and sadly discovered upon opening the box that the camera is supplied without rear lens cap for the zoom lens and without body cap. I have tried to see if those could be bought separately, but it seems they are not available at the moment (particularly the body cap)...so I tried the various caps I have at home and found that the pentax rear lens cap works OK but it is not a tight fit. On the other hand, the 4/3rds (not micro 4/3) body cap fit the lens mouth perfectly, but it does not seem to rotate well for closing, and I did not want to force it because the plastic connectors in the camera seem a bit fragile...has anyone found a body cap that fits reasonably well and is available in the market now?
