    I am posting this in the Olympus forum because that's what I own. I think it also applies to other cameras.

    Point is this.

    All lens manufacturers should ship lenses with center pinch lens caps. This works best whether one uses a hood or not.

    Most of the time when you need to use a hood, the traditional lens caps don't work and its wasteful having to buy another lens cap.

    Of course cheap China-made ones are only a couple of dollars but branded ones usually sell for a lot more.
     
  2. Add lens hood. The pany 20mm & oly9-18mm no hoods. Outer rim pinch lens caps. Bit of a bummer having to spend a few extra $s.

    Center-pinch lens caps would make it more difficult to prominently display the lens manufacturer's logo...

    I use step-up rings and 52mm Panasonic Lumix caps on all my lenses. They are center-pinch.
