Lost Your La Sardina Lens Cap?


It happened to me too fast…

For some reason I am loosing all my lens caps. Most of the time, I don’t really care, but somehow it is a pity. Coincidently, I found out that my green Marathon La Sardina can also wear a bottle cap. So if you want to protect your lens from scratches and dust, empty a bottle and there you go!
