Just wondering about these lens caps....It doesn't look like you can still use your lens hood with them on? Is this a problem for anyone?

True, lens hood won't fit over the flip cap. It's a potential problem, but in practice I've taken thousands of shots, virtually all during the day and often in the sun, without problems. But I don't doubt there are situations where the hood can help. Always trade-offs.

I have one and I recommend only using it on a prime lens. I tried it on my kit lens and the 55-210 and you have to have the lens wide open when you close the lens cap or it'll push the lens wide open. Some people probably don't want to force the lens open by pushing it, I suspect. I put mine on my 50 until I decided to use a lens hood. Now it sits on a shelf until I decide not to use a hood I suppose.
