Good knock off rear caps.
Posted By: Roob-N-Boots, 04-11-2013, 09:08 PM

It's gonna happen, no matter how many times you have told yourself "I wont buy any more lenses" you end up relapsing. After the relapse you end up needing lens caps, lens hoods etc for your newly acquired (your temporary fix) lens. Haha, in all seriousness I got tired of buying rear end lens caps that wouldn't stay on tight enough. I found these to act, feel and look almost as good as the oem for a tenth of the cost. Hope this helps you guys with your post LBA purchases.

Good knock off rear caps
If they are really the same as the picture, the look like the real OEM product, good find.

I picked up 10 of them for about AU$17 posted about a week ago (the offer was 10 for 12 pounds sterling). I only needed 4 but why buy them one at a time at that price? They fit just as they should and I will need them all sooner of later if I keep buying M42 lenses and fitting adapters!

Yeah, they are the same caps pictured. You have to put them side by side to the OEM ones in order to notice the subtle differences.

There are a number of Chinese outfits on ebay who sell caps that were obviously molded from the original caps but are actually counterfeits. Occasionally you will see "new" m42 rear caps that say "Asahi Pentax," which is a dead giveaway
