A good solution
on 7 June 2013
People may tell you that "Pros don't use lens cap keepers", but after losing my lens cap early on on a long trip last year and subsequently sacrificing a polarising filter to protect the lens, I no longer care whether they look "Pro" or not. I returned home looking for a solution to prevent this happening again, and this product has worked well for me. Rather than using the included sticky tab I bought a cheapo lens cap with holes for a lanyard attachment, and simply threaded the cap keeper through there. In my opinion this is more secure as it doesn't rely on the adhesive.
Would have given this product 5 stars but for the fact that after 9 months' use the elastic on the lens keeper has broken - partly because it was only just big enough for my 28-300mm lens to begin with. This may be something to consider if you're using a similar diameter lens. However, the fact that I've just ordered a replacement is testament to my satisfaction with the product.
