Zenitar 16mm Fish-Eye Front Cap Replacement?

Hi everyone,

Oh dear....I lost the front cap of the Zenitar and xBay charges like USD$30 for a replacement.

Does anyone know if another (cheapter) cap would fit? The Zenitar has a protruding hood and has a bit of a weird shape.

Thanks for your help in advance!

The cap on mine says 60 x 0.75 on the inside of the cap. I suspect that a deep 60mm push on cap might fit. Alternatively, you could fashion a DIY hood similar to the one uccemebug links to from his review of the Zenitar 16:
PentaxForums.com Third-Party Pentax Lens Review Database - 16mm f2.8 Fisheye
Hope this helps.

Steve

(Have almost misplaced mine several times...)
