DA40 Snap-in lens cap at B&H

Just an FYI...

I got this 30mm lens cap and it fits the DA40 lens hood perfectly, so you don't have to use the metal screw-in cap Pentax gives you.

Adorama has this one, but I've never tried it.

The Op-Tech HoodHat is another solution.

Hmmm; will that fit on the DA 40mm, though?

a film canister cap does the job too.
