X100V - best cap for weather-resistance kit
2

Hi,

I read that the original lens cap does not fit very well on the kit filter (49 mm thread). What is the best cap solution? Does any of those snap lens caps, e.g. from Hama fit in the kit filter thread? Any experience?

May be there was already a discussion, than I would appriciate a belonging link.

Thank you very much in advance; I could not try in a shop these days

I have found a size 7.5 New York Yankee cap to fit perfectly!

Any filter will provide weather resistance because the water can't get through the metal threads.

I use this with a UV filter and like it a lot. No lens cap needed.

Get the Nisi filter and use your stock Fuji lens cap.

I like the one piece Haoge filter: WR, great glass (which is recessed and protected), feels great in the hand, it accepts additional 52mm filters or hoods (unlike the Nisi), it’s relatively cheap, and the original cap still fits too.

I use the cap that comes with the X100T. Fits with perfect amount of grip. Not sure, but it also may be the same as the one with the X100F.

Thank you all for your input, much appriciated. For the moment the Haoge solution seems to me the favorite, also available in black. Not known to me yet, and I own some 52 mm filters which also speaks for this piece.

However, it is not easy to get an overview of all possible combinations. Not sure whether Fuji creates the optimum here.

Re: X100V - best cap for weather-resistance kit

I also use one of the Haoge's mentioned above (the circular one, also as linked as follows).

https://www.amazon.com/Haoge-LH-X49W-Ultra-Thin-Fujifilm-Replaces/dp/B01DNL2S98

The lens hood itself helps prevent water from hitting the UV filter screwed inside of it, so you can actually shoot in the rain (to a reasonable degree).

I have an old X100F lens cap which fits on this lens hood.

The lens cap that came with the X100V is actually just a tiny bit wider than the old X100 series lens caps, so is a bit too big for it .
