    I have been using a B&W slimline filter on my 24-105mm lens. The lens cap was completely useless and always a loose fit. In fact when the weather was warm it expanded so that it never stayed on the lens. Obviously it came off and I now don't have any cover on the front of the lens. I have emailed B&W and of course they haven't replied, good service?

    Does anyone know where I can get a 77mm lens cover for the SLIMLINE filter. The original lens cap doesn't fit on.

    Thanks for that, I do have my original Canon cap but it won't fit the slimline rim of the filter. I think I might have to get B&W talking. Their after sales has been terrible and there cap should have fitted in the first place.

    I had a problem with a B+W polarising filter that seemed almost like balsam separation. I emailed them several times but never did get a response and gave up and bought a new filter.

    Their products are good even if the backup is non-existant.

    You are right there. I have emailed them again in the hope that they may well respond. How can a company make such a good piece of glass and provide such a poor piece of plastic that won't fit??

    Has anyone else suffered with the B&W lens cap fitting?

    Do you need a Slimline?
    None of the recent to Nikon lenses vignette with Nikon filters - which are not Slimline and take a normal lens cap.
    If Canon are similar you do not need a slimline for your lens. Canon filters are relatively inexpensive from Speedgraphic.

    There are plenty of neoprene lens caps available that pull over the lens and filters. One of them might be a better bet than a clip-on type. Try Speed Graphic for starters.

    You complain about B&W customer service but do remember that many companies will not be re-opening until 7th January after their Christmas and New Year holiday.

    ...just checked the Speed Graphic catalogue. They call them Hood Hats.
