    No, and it's not a 2 headed monster. I super-glued two rear caps together, back to back. Now I can stack my 20/1.7 and 14/2.5 (or any other pair of u4/3 lenses) in my camera bag.
  2. Stack them face to face for a DIY Macro lens. I used cokin adapters crazy glued face to face. Worked well on an AE 1 Program.
  3. Just remember two things...

    1) Those caps do not lock
    2) Those capes are made of plastic (and not designed for such application). They loosen over time.

    I have seen one photog drop one lens using two end caps glued together. In our case, our lenses are small and lightweight, especially the 14 and 20. So the problem may not be as serious.
