While on my way down to Dana Point Harbor the other day to meet a couple of friends for coffee I saw a view of the coast in gorgeous light. I quickly pulled off the road and grabbed my camera in hopes of getting a shot. As I jumped out of the car I removed the lens cap and—dropped it on the pavement. Immediately, a car whooshed past and drove right over it. Perfect timing. Perfect aim to crush the lens cap under the tires.
Great, I thought. I’ll need to get a replacement. But as I bent down to pick up the cap I was surprised to see that it didn’t look too badly damaged. I squeezed the lock/unlock mechanism and it worked fine. I popped it back on my camera. And it worked fine.
As you can see in the photo it got chewed up a little bit. But it continues to work just fine. I’m impressed by the build quality. Of the lens cap. One more reason to love my new GH4.
