Lens cap

just bought a SMC Pentax-F 50mm F1.7 lens, but i need a lens cap for it. not sure what size to buy. i can't find a 50mm size online. the ones i am finding are either a little undersized or over. any suggestions? this is the style i would like:

the 50/1.7 has a filter ring size of 49mm. you should be looking for a 49mm cap, not a 50mm.

you are most welcome. I do suggest that you look for a really good lens cap though. avoid buying the cheapest generic ones coz they could fall-apart or fall-off much easily. also they don't really grip that nicely or securely on the filter ring. remember that the idea for buying a lens cap is to protect the front element.

Also, I suggest an "empty" filter ring (a filter with the glass removed) to protect the lens's filter thread.
