Replacement for lost FA 77 lens cap

Any one got any idea about whether the DA 70/2.4 genuine lens cap can be used as replacement for FA77/1.8?

or other genuine limited lens cap than can be used as replacement?

Many thanks.

Why not just buy a lens cap?

Thanks alamo5000, Unfortunately mine is a black copy. I think BP photo got only a silver piece.

Adorara seems to have some 49mm metal caps in stock, but it also shows an image of silver cap, plus the shipping cost is really deterring.

will try eBay for luck.

About $25 bucks and you can get one. I think the 43mm one and the 77mm are the same but I am not sure.

I just googled it and put up the first link I found. I know they have black ones around.

I also just looked at your profile... you are in Singapore! (nice! I used to live in Singapore)

You can just run down to several stores there and pick one up in person I am pretty sure.

Yup, FA 43mm and FA 77mm caps are of the same size. I have a FA 43mm and did tried its cap on the FA77. There are some guys selling the genuine 77/43mm metal hood on ebay and prices are generally 50/60+.

You are quite right that I probably should drop by the local stores and check it out, before ordering it form overseas.

Singapore is quite nice especially with its close neighbours, but it's just toooo small >_<

By the way, many thanks for ur help and reminder.
