    In Dpreview's preview of the 14mm, they mention the "slimline" front (46mm) and back lenscaps of the 14. Photo here:

    IN THEIR WORDS: "To complete the package, it comes with new slimline front and rear caps (click here for a picture), which better complement the 'pancake' concept than the chunkier ones which are supplied with the 20mm F1.7 (credit to Panasonic for this, it's always nice to see a company paying attention to the small details)" (http://www.dpreview.com/previews/panasonic_14_2p5_100-300_4-5p6).

    My 14 came separated from a kit, so I don't have the documentation to find the part numbers to order these. I have both the 20 and the 14 and I had the slimline front cap, but it was on my 20 when it was stolen...and my 20 didn't come with the normal 20 lenscap, rather, it came with the pinch style one used for when I use a hood.

    Does anyone know I can buy the specific lenscaps that ship with the 14? Thanks.

    The Olympus lenses use extremely thin lens caps. If you can't find the Panasonic, those should work. My 25 and 60mm both came with 46mm caps and they are very thin.
