M-CAP M12470 for Elmarit-M 28mm F2.8 ASPH and Summicron-M 35mm F2.0 ASPH
After over a 18 months of prototyping, testing and design work we have finally arrived at what we believe is the ultimate solution for Leica M users. This custom designed lens cap features a machined, bead blasted and anodised aluminium body and a unique locking mechanism for an incredibly secure fit to the lens hood of the camera. We have been trying to get this cap to fail during testing but it just refuses to move and stays firmly affixed to the end of the hood as if held in with magnets.
Effortless to remove and install, we guarantee you will be happy with how satisfying it is to use. We owe this to the unique injection moulded shield and spring mechanism built into the product. Two tabs snap into the inner surfaces of the lens hood for a strong positive lock that leaves no play between the hood and the cap.
When the cap is installed, the viewfinder cutout on the lens hood is also closed off and covered from the elements* by a 3D feature that follows the curves of the lens hood perfectly.
No branding on the front for a discrete, stealthy look which blends right in to the aesthetics of the camera. The surfaces of the cap are perfectly planar with the surfaces of the 12470 hood so this just feels like an extension of the camera.
Lots of clearance inside for filters. Super slim design adds less than 2mm to the length of the camera when installed.
This model (M12470) fits the following Leica M lenses:
- Elmarit-M 28mm F2.8 ASPH.
