Rear cap replacement for WCL-X100 converter?

Hello folks,

I finally was able to loose rubber rear cap for WCL/TCL converter, does everybody know where I can find a replacement (may be even not original Fuji)? Google does not give me valuable results unfortunately.

Appreciate your help in advance,

You should be able to use a standard lens cap, don’t have my F / WCL with me to give you the correct size.

I doubt that I can use standard REAR lens cap for Fuji WCL / TCL though, that rubber piece that covers rear element (that screws into X100F body).

Hi there. Have you found a replacement yet? I’m having the same issue—lost the rear cap to my WCL-x100 ii.

I just use a 49mm pinch cap on each end of my WCL-X100II.

I searched eBay for "fuji wcl-x100 rear cap" and found:

Oh, thanks a lot. it is just what I need!

Going to buy 2 instead of rubber caps that are so easily to come off.
