When I'm not using my camera I always store the body and lenses apart, as in I don't ever leave a lens on my body if I'm not using it.
So when I arrive at a shoot, is usually when I set up my camera, of course I arrive a few minutes early to do so, but I've noticed a nifty feature...

the cap from the body, and the cap from the backend of my lens... connect!
you can screw them together, so instead of two loose floating pieces i now only have one.
kinda cool eh? but maybe this is something a lot of people already knew/do?

let me know! any other nifty features i should know about haha.
then again, this may just make me a nerd because i'm so fascinated by it.

...yeah, pretty obvious to me :p. The rear of the lens has to fit into the front of the camera, so it only makes sense that the mounts for them fit together (for the caps as well).

For an even more nerdy thing - you can use the space in there to story fun stuff (like gummy bears!).

hahaha in my head it would seem the cap for the backend of the lens would be too big, but sure enough it fit. haha it took me two months to figure that i was wrong. sheesh.
but i am glad to read i'm the ONLY one that didn't know haha

lol, yes, that's how i store my extra set in the bag. it's in one of the bigger pockets so this also prevents any possible scratches since the sharper parts are now hidden or mated.

here's another little tip. i use the mated caps as a mini pedestal or stand for items that i'm selling. i prop an item on it or leaning against it in most of my product images.

if you think about it, we'd be in some serious trouble if they didn't fit together ;)
