49mm pinch cap for DA 15mm

Yup, I'm not too enthused with the DA 15mm front cap. I need a cheap pinch cap for it!

PM me if you have one, or have a recommendation of where I can get one.

Hello, you can use Pentax O-LC49 lens cap with DA 15mm. It won't interfere when you pull or retract built-in hood.

This is what I use. It's better than many others costing 5 times as much. How can you go wrong with $2 delivered?

I attach two narrow strips of self-adhesive sandpaper to the center pinch for ease of attaching/detaching to/from the lens.

I've found that the Loop section of self adhesive Velcro works well for this also.
