Lens Cap Replacement

Hey all -
i emailed pentax 2 weeks ago and still have yet to hear anything back from them so i am going where i should have gone in the first place...HERE!
i need to get a replacement lens cap for the 10-17mm fish - eye. the nice metal one. the lining on the interior side of mine came out recently and now it will not stay on the lens - and given the severe curve of that lens - it is not going to end well for my little friend i am afraid. right now it is off my k20 body and has a couple of rubber bands around it to hold the cap in place. anyone know where i could get a replacement cap or if there is a 3rd party cap that is comparable? if you have this lens then you know how sweet that metal lens cap is! ive searched the usual suspects and found nothing...any ideas where i could find one?

You can just buy the lining from Pentax parts department. Might take awhile to ship from Japan though. Or better, if yours is still in one piece, just tape it back with industrial strength double sided tape. The added thickness helps the cap to stay on better. Don't glue it BTW. Just search eBay for "Nitto 500".

$40 for a new cap at B&H I'd use the tape!

A cheap simple push on 60mm plastic lens cap works fine - like this one : Pentax push on 60mm lens cap | eBay
