43mm and 21mm prime limited lens caps

I'm purchasing the Pentax Ltd. 43mm and the 21mm. Does the 49mm lens cap fit over the lens hood or does the lens hood need to be removed and then the cap installed directly on the lens each time it is retired to the case? I want to include in my order a cap that will fit the lens hood. Thank you.

I don't know about the 43, but for the 21 the cap fits better when the lens hood is on than when it is off.

The lens cap that comes with the 43mm will only fit with the hood, if you remove the hood... you will need another 49mm lens cap.

With respect to the 43, the included cap fits on the hood. It will not work on the 43 without the hood attached.

edit: aleonx3 beat me to it

The FA43 and the DA21 both already come with hoods and caps, and both lenses can only be fitted with their front caps if their hoods are on. Both have removable hoods (although the DA21 is easier to remove).

That what I thought regarding the 21 as well, but since I not longer own the 21 I wasn't 100% certain.

lens hoods

Thanks to all. I'm delighted to know that the caps work with the hoods in place. Simpler.
