I hate the rubber lens cap on the K-01

Is there any other options? It's a real tight fit and if you push/pull or twist hard enough the lens motor turns...

Are there any alternatives?

You can get a Chinese 27mm snap-on plastic cap for about 60 cents via eBay (I bought a three-pack, assuming I'd lose them eventually). They only have one push-tab, as opposed to the two on a larger cap, but so far as I can tell, they work just fine.

Awesome, that's just what I needed to know. Off to ebay.
btw, wasn't Pentax showing off a lens cap pin-hole lens prototype?

Whatever happened to that?

You mean the one for the 40mm? Yeah, I wasn't a fan either.

They had to postpone it because it wasn't Full-Frame.

Dunno about actual Pentax, but I've seen two or three different brands of pinhole lenses/caps for PK out on eBay...
