I don't know if this still applies, but I have the hoya hmc uv filter always on my DA 35LTD which allows for me to use it with the original cap attached. The trick I later found out is to pull the lens hood out just enough to cover the filter itself and you will be able to use your original cap with the filter.

Hope this helps,

Dave

I discovered this too Dave. Still, it doesn't seem very secure. I'd feel a whole lot better losing a 5 dollar pastic cap than the original Limited fancy jobs.

Yeah, I understand about the security issue, probably best to buy another clip type cap for the DA 35 LTD

I don't know what genuine replacement Pentax caps go for, but when I look at the 77mm ltd, it can't be too cheap.
