When I bought the elmarit 28mm, it came with a metal lens cap that fits over the lens when not using the provided hood. My summicron 35mm did not come with the same type of lens cap but instead a plastic one that you pinch on the sides. both lens caps are the same size and I end up using the metal one more as it doesn't get snagged on stuff like the plastic one does. I happened to lose the metal cap this weekend and I can't find any body that sells a replacement, but the plastic version is prety easy to find. Does anyone know a vendor that carries the metal lens cap? Also does anyone know if there's a metal lens cap for the summilux 50mm (the newer version with the built in hood)? Popflash has a metal cap for the 50mm LHSA version but that doesn't look like it will work. The plastic cap that came with my lux 50 is fine but if there's a metal cap alternative, I'd like to check it out.
