    Does anyone know the lens diameter for the Minolta MC Rokkor-X 50 mm F/1.4 PG Lens, so I can order the right size caps.

    Thanks!

    Also, are there alternatives to the rear-lens cap, or is ebay the best option to get one.

    The MC 50/1.4 only came in 55mm front threads. Ebay/Amazon are usually the best option, besides a local camera store with a backlog of caps.

    This, of course, would be the size for screw-in and clip-in/snap-in caps. Slip-on caps that fit over the outside of the filter ring would be approx 2mm larger.

    Correct. The D57KB hood would also work, even though it was originally designed for the 58/1.4. I can confirm that it takes 57mm slip-on/over caps.
