Fisheye Takumar 17/4 lens cap size 58mm?

Hi,

Can any of you guys that has the Fisheye Takumar 17/4 confirm me that the lens cap is 58mm in diameter?

Mine came with a 60mm takumar cap that is always falling :S
Need to buy a cap that fits, just want to make sure that i'm not buying the wrong size.


Thanks in advance

Yes, the lens cap on my s-m-c fishy-takumar also fits a 58mm filter.

The cap of the fishy-takumar attaches to the filter selector ring and not the lens barrel itself (with the cap on, I can see the orange index mark but I can't see the "L39(UV)" mark that it points to). That's only a few mm of metal to grab on to, so the lens cap isn't as secure as it is on the other takumars.

If your existing cap is the right size but the felt lining is compressed or degraded you should probably just replace the felt (rather than buy another cap which will probably also have compressed felt).

The cap i have is marked 60mm and it's made from rubber, it's clearly not original from this lens.

I don't know if every Takumar 58mm push-on metal cap will fit this lens, because of the front element :S

Oh well, i'll just have to buy and try.

Thank you for your answer.
