I wouldn’t be too hard on the OP, I had the actual components in front of me and still struggled to give them their correct descriptions.:-)

Same here. It did confuse me at first but when I had the pieces in hand I could clearly see what he was talking about. I appreciate his heads-up and don't see any value in nit-picking his post.

Of course you are technically correct Tom - but given that EF lenses all use the same rear caps and only the extenders use modified body caps I don't think that it is too much of a shot in the dark to twig what the OP was on about.

On a personal note, when I first came to photography, I assumed that the front of the camera was the side that I look at - not the side that the subject looks at = perfectly logical to an Archer, hence my mention of flinging arrows about. Even now I have to think about it a bit as, to me, the screen is on the front of the camera, but then I have spent more time with bows than cameras!

We know what the OP meant (or if we didn't then that is worrying!) so just give them the answer and, possibly, politely correct their terminology?


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

Just in case this crops up again, as they say, a picture is worth 1,000 words.:-)

Assuming B&H are correct in their description, the link below is for the Canon Extender Cap E II Front Cap for EF 1.4x & 2x Tele Extenders, which looks like the deeper front lens cap for the Canon Extenders.

PS - excuse the blur - slow handheld shutter speed with flash.

Reading the thread just now, that is what I saw happen. And then someone followed up with photos, which was excellent in clearing up any confusion, and useful for anyone who has the same query and googles this thread. Good result.


Cheers, Damien
