Bayonet Q rear lens caps.

Need some Q rear lens caps for a project. Do any of the after market Q rear caps bayonet on instead of push on? Can make the push ons work but really need the extra purhase of the bayonet.
thanks

Here ya go: New Body Rear Lens Cap Cover for Pentax Q Mount DSLR Camera | eBay

These are soooooo much better than the original caps in every way. They only come in a rear lens cap & body cap set, but you'll also want the body cap, anyway.

I can vouch for them too. Much better than the originals.

I've had two sets of these and I have to say that they work ok but tend to be a lil bit loose on the bayonet & keep coming off. I think it's because these are a harder plastic vs a softer rubbery oem cap which stays on much better from my experience!

If they twist off accidently in the bag that is okay. I want to hang something from the cap. The cap just needs to be able to hold more weight with out it prying off the lens.

Anyone order and receive theirs yet? I ordered 5/5 because I realized I could use another rear cap, no joy yet.

I haven't received mine yet either. Shipment info on ebay says it should arrive sometime between Tues (yesterday) and this coming Monday so it isn't late yet. Last report from the tracking info is that the package left Shenzhen on 5/7.

Stuff from China has been taking a lot longer these days. Wonder if they have cut back on resources.
