I.....but the springs are not as strong as the Canon ones. The caps sometimes fall off my lens when I'm putting the lens in or taking it out of my bag.

My experience is the same.

I must be the only person in the world who prefers the old "edge" caps. :confused:

I prefer them as well, I was kind of disappointed when my new lens came with that cap, they don't stay on.

my understanding was all new lenses manufactured after they updated the lens caps would come with the new pinch style lens cap. My 85 1.8 I bought last year had it even though it's an older lens. It makes sense for them to discontinue the old style. If not they would have to have 2 manufacturing lines for each size of cap, vs just a single line for each size of new lens cap.

I really like the Tokina front-lens caps. Lost the one of my 400mm L prime, and replaced the cap with a 77mm Tokina cap. Could not be happier about it.

Canon realized they had the worst caps in the game and finally switched! LOL! But I wouldn't concern myself with which cap I got on a lens as old as the 1.4 ;)

the old caps are thinner, and I only use caps for storage. but I like the new ones too. to me a cap is a cap. I probably "lose" six caps a year and then refind them in a jacket pocket or in the bowels of one of my camera bags. so I have extras....sorry to ramble :D

I prefer them too because they are flatter but I don't stress either way and I accept change is inevitable :D. I only use caps for storage so either type works.

I also prefer the flatter ones, however I don't only use them for storage. I leave them on, keeps me from "blowing out" images:lol:

Both of my new STM lenses have the new pinch caps but they seem more tempermental to install. Pinch caps are good for use with a hood on the lens.

You can also pinch the new canon caps from the outside edge.

just don't forget you already took it off, then reach around the hood and try to pinch the middle thinking you need to take it off. I bought a couple lens pens to have on hand for cleaning those marks.
