    Any idea where I can buy a lens cap for my 14-42 lens (E-PL5)? Olympus doesn't seem to have any on their site and a google search turned up nothing.

    I bought one from B&H, but I'd call them because when I ordered the one I thought their website said was the right one, it wasn't. I called them and they sent the correct one to me. It isn't an Olympus one, though, if that is what you are looking for, but it fits and works fine.

    I bought an Olympus one from B&H a while ago. It helps that I was at the store to make sure it was the right one. The guy at the counter was certain it was even before I checked.

    Of course, this one was also lost within a month...

    Ebay will have the cheapest prices. Period. Just found one for $3 shipped from the US.

    There were two filter thread sizes for Olympus 14-42mm "kit" lenses. An E-PL1 I used to have took 40.5mm filters, a later E-P3 "kit" lens took 37mm.

    B&H has both sizes in Sensei brand squeeze "clip on" lens caps. I like their "center pinch" caps but those seem to only be available in larger sizes. I've got them (and spares) in 52mm and 58mm and find them to be a very sturdy cap.

    The 40.5mm and 37mm are so small they are very easy to lose. I advise ordering a spare or two.
