Genuine Sony quality issue
4

Specifically their standard lens caps. They do not last long at all. Never have. They are of an inferior cheap design where the spring is a flexible plastic leg that flexes and breaks at the same place on every one. Considering the price we pay for these lenses, they could at least supply caps that have some design consideration towards durability and reliability. Surely?

Another one bites the dust with both legs of the spring, just to the right of centre, broken.

What a load of rubbish! Literally. A waste of a component that should last a lifetime. The cheap generic ones I keep in stock to replace broken Sony and the occasional other brand [that get lost rather than break] are of far higher quality.
