    Picked up an Olympus 46 mm front lens cap (the same one as bundled with the 17/1.8) for my 25/1.4.

    I must say I really like these Olympus lens caps. Now the 25/1.4 will sit face down on a counter without toppling over all the time.

    Rather minor, but felt like sharing.

    I too prefer Oly lens caps for their low profile, especially.

    I'm really not particular about caps, myself. :) I always use a lens hood though, which mostly explains that indifference.

    I have used Tamron center pinch caps for a while using Canon gear and have put the Tamrons to use in Micro 4/3. They work. Chunky and easy to grab hold of as compared to, say, Olympus' flat caps. Smaller diameters could be a pain, though, because I feel that the spring tension is the same throughout and think that the smaller caps could use less tension.
