I'm #2. Can't stand the new center pinch. Almost comically thick, much slower (for me), and they get in the way. Bought an old style cap and left the new sitting in the lens box..

All center pinch caps can be used exactly like edge pinch caps. Just grab them like edge pinch caps and your lens will never be the wiser.

The 82mm has been out of stock at B&H and Adorama for months. Anyone know where it is in stock?

Ive been loving the 77mm ones I bought a while back. Had to wait for them to come back in stock at B&H and as soon as I got the email I ordered! Need to get a couple 58mm ones now...

They should have squeezed "ultrasonic" in there somewhere. Looks really plain.

After waiting for months for B&H, Amazon, and Adorama, to no avail, I finally bought mine directly from Canon for $12 (+S&T) because I wanted to be sure and get a real one and not a Chinese knock-off you'd risk getting if you buy one on eBay. Now even Canon is backordered...

They'll probably show up here first: Canon 82mm Center Pinch Lens Cap (external link)

I just got nine of the new center-pinch caps in the mail from Adorama. I haven't used them in the field yet, but I love the fit, finish, and functionality of these new lens caps! Nice job Canon!!

And...I have an 82mm on back-order as well. :lol:

I knew I should have bought 4 or 5 of the 82mm's when Canon had them for $12 a few weeks back and marked them up like "Big Stoppers" in the "FS Marketplace"... ;)

I switched all my caps over a few weeks ago. I got one from adorama, two on amazon and a brand new sealed 82mm here. I sold all my old caps here and on amazon for $5-7 each.

The Mark I nifty fifty (nifty metal fifty) I just bought needed a new lens cap as the old one was a bit warn. So of course I had to get a center pinch cap :)

Brand new cap for a 26 year old lens. I almost picked up the new center pinch caps for my other canon lenses but refrained from doing so since all the other caps are still basically brand new.......Still so tempting to get them anyways :p

All new center ones just say Canon. Does it matter if it says Ultrasonic? Its a cap.

My 82mm cap has been on backorder with B&H for about 4 months. I'm not in a hurry so I'll just wait.

They're back in stock at B&H and at Canon. Act soon, I suspect.

Well I'm on B&H's list and they send me regular updates which ask if I want to cancel the order. I suspect that mine will be shipped the minute they get it. I also have a few other sizes on order.
