I honestly thought the body cap thingy was just packing material.
That is what I thought.

I still consider that the best body cap is a functional lens. After all, the body is not much good without one.

Any lens you leave on the body is having it's aperture arm being pushed all the way open, all of the time, even when the camera's off.
Oh, my...that is a disturbing thought. My Pentax-M 50/1.7 has been mounted to a camera without with only minimal rest since 1982. I can only imagine the fatigue.

FWIW, I carry an old Ricoh body cap (the one that came with my XR7) in my bag should I need one. Works great.
