It's made of cheap plastic and doesn't screw on; it just kind of pops on and off.

The II has an uglier and less useful front cap too. When I replaced my Mk I with the II I actually contemplated keeping the older caps because they were nicer, but then I didn't because I wanted to sell the old lens the way it came when I bought it. Oh well.

My 18-55 II came with the exact same type of screw-on rear cap on it that my 18-55 I came with. I don't know if the words printed on the bottom were the same or not, but they were the exact same style in terms of how they attach. I have heard that some people got the snap-on kind. FWIW, I don't mind the snap-on ones - they actually seem less likely to work themselves loose and fall off in my bag than the screw-on ones.

As for the front cap, that was different - but way *better* with the II. It's a "center pinch" style cap, designed so you can remove and replace the cap even with the lens hood mounted - something that was very difficult to do with the old-style "side pinch" cap that shipped with my 18-55 I. A huge improvement.
