    ... where you buy your centre pinch lens caps from?

    Just had my 24-70 f2.8 delivered from One-Stop (in 4 days! :eek: - still bloody waiting for the Nikon 70-300 VR I ordered at the same time from Cameras2u.com :rolleyes: ) and realised that they come with the 'squeeze at the edges' lens caps which, unless you have tiny fingers, are flippin impossible to remove with a lens hood on.

    I'm guessing I'm not the first to have this problem so where do you guys get replacements from? Do you get Sigma branded ones, or plain ones or Nikon / Canon branded :confused:

    Cheers :)

    On my 70-300 Sigma lens I leave the UV filter on and use a Canon lens cap. The original sigma lens cap was deeper and I ended up scratching my first UV filter with it !

    Cheers John - do you have a reliable source for your lens caps?

    I bought mine from ABC Digital Cameras - I'm not sure if they are the cheapest but I've bought a bit of stuff from them and they've been very reliable for me. Just search for Canon Lens Caps or whatever lens cap you want and they are there.
