I purchased my LX100 when first released in early November 2014. Since then, I've been waiting endlessly for Panasonic to release its $40 black auto lens cap accessory. The basic cap Panasonic includes with the camera is simply a nuisance to manually remove, reattach, and dangle while shooting photos. Frankly, when I saw this $18 after-market JJC cap, designed specifically for the LX100, I figured what the heck ... it's worth a try. Furthermore, and UNLIKE Panasonic's auto lens cap, this one opens and closes perfectly fine with a filter attached. I use a B+W 43mm Clear UV Haze/MRC filter on my LX100. Perhaps Panasonic delayed the release of their black auto lens cap, in order to redesign JJC's filter capability into its own cap. However, after waiting 4 months, I didn't care anymore. I'm pleased with JJC's cap, though I can't attest to its long term durability. It is made in China, but it seems adequately constructed to survive reasonable use and time. Since the cap was...
This fits perfectly on my Panasonic DMC-LX100 camera and is less pricey than the OEM branded one. The metal ring that's already installed on camera comes off with a twist and you just twist this one right in its place and it doesn't add too much bulk. The three doors are a bit flimsy but they are pretty hard to open with your fingers so I don't think they'll easily get snagged on stuff and they still provide convenient protection as opposed to a regular lens cap that you can either lose or get lazy about putting on. I'm not a fan of the bright white lettering so I rotated it to the bottom as much as possible.
Workmanship is fine and quite assuring. Fits and works well on LX100 with a B+W UV filter. I'll post an update on its durability after using it through a four weeks trip this summer. Update on June 19, 2015. Through four weeks' rough use in both both cities and country this summer, the cap has worked and survived well. I'd expect it to remain functional for at least another couple of rough trips.
