Optech back to back rear lens cap - Leica M mount

Just wanted to share - I have just started using the Op/tech (Newpro) rear double lens cap for my 25 35 50 Zeiss ZM & 15 Voigtlander VM lenses on my 5N.

They make it for several different types of mounts...You might want to check it out for your legacy lenses.

Seems to work fine...Lenses now fit in my bag without bashing into each over.

The cap has a rubber O ring, Lenses fit quite tight and secure...I would add it is best to attach not at infinity focus as the rear of some lenses (not all) can hit the plastic partition.

I did that with two Sony rear caps and some sticky velcro. It's just to the left of the NEX-5N That's a Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 and the 16mm/WAA kit.

Thats a good idea Rich...I might try super gluing 2 plastic caps back to back (I personally would prefer a more solid connection) ...That way I wouldn't have to worry about them pulling apart when I withdrew them from my camera compartment or where the focus was set.
Although adding a rubber O ring would be harder to over come.
Many thanks Barry

I have been supergluing lens caps for a while. It works really well. There is no need for rubber O rings. By supergluing E mount lens caps, I can mix and match lenses.

Many thanks blue_skies for the confirmation...It is always nice if someone has tried it first...Like you say you can mix and match different types of mounts.
