Improvised Lens Mount End Cap

I tried a search but got no results. Has anyone come up with an improvised cap for the K series lens mount?. I have one more lens than I have protective fittings for the mounting end. I have scoured the local auction sites, zillions of lens caps but nothing that slips over the mount.

Thanks.

Might not solve your problem, but I have one of these Op-Tech double-ended mount caps. Super handy when carrying around a few Limited lenses.

Ah, if that's true, those are tougher finds. B&H sells them, though. $10 from Pentax, $3 from Sigma.

A cap for the rear of the lens.

pjv has the answer, I will just have to figure out how this Ebay works. In New Zealand, there is stuff all support for Pentax. I have been looking for a NZ dealer selling WR lenses. Just about zilch.

Give this mob a ring mate, and see if they have what you need. Good luck.

Do yourself and the vendor a fovour and buy 10 - 20 at a time!! Careful though - sometimes the "free shipping" falls off

How did you go with the end caps, and with joining in the Kiwi thread mate? They are a good bunch, and I am sure they welcomed you into the group.

My warped sense of humour seems to fit right in. I can work around the end caps. I have a new lens on it's way from Aussie, 1/3rd the NZ price, and will likely sell two surplus lenses.
