Re: What lens caps are you guys using?

The Op/Tech Fast Cap doesn't work with the lens hoods that I have.  The diameter of the cap is a little larger than the diameter of the lens barrel but too large to fit inside a lens hood.  I typically don't use lens hoods as the lenses I use are flare resistant.  Since the flap is adjustable, it is possible to use it to block the sun from your glass.  I find that I can draw the camera, flip open the Fast Cap and take the photograph so I have many less missed opportunities.  I try not to use the quick draw approach to photograph that I learned in my PJ days in the 60s.  I usually take the time to compose before shooting but some times, you just have to react.
