The rubber lens cap that comes with the Leica Summilux-M 35mm ASPH FLE for the lens hood easily comes off in my bag. I have lost and found it more than a few times.

Does anyone make a better lens cap that fits over the lens hood securely. I don't need to spend $60 for the Leica logo on a lousy cap.

Leica Miami just showed a nice metal cap that locks into the hood.

It's expensive at $75+ $7.95 UPS shipping, but the Leica rubber one is $60. I pre-ordered one.

Thank you!

It has several benefits over the original (post #4). Pennies compared to your top end lenses, etc.  Red Dot Forum is Leica Miami, after all.

I canceled my pre-order for the lens cap because I am trading my Summilux 35mm ASPH FLE for the New close-focusing Summilux 35mm.

The rubber cap on the first FLE suits me fine; never lost it, and only used when stored in bag, not when out shooting.
 

As an RF-only user, the close focus distance on these new lenses is lost on me; unnecessary design complexity. My SL lenses focus closer anyway. The aperture blade issue reported for some new FLE lenses is also troublesome.  Whatever works.

I lost the cap for the 28 and bought one from Leica for 40E.

Not to risk loosing another pricy one, I made a spare cap with PVC for the lenses that have the same type of cap.

#1 Make a paper model, #2 cut the piece of PVC, #3 form it with a hear dryer, #4 adjust the shape
