I have an 18-86 Vario Switar EE lens for my Bolex, but I have no lens cap for it.

On an internet auction, I found a kern lens cap that is listed as being 65 mm in diameter. The front of my lens looks to be closer to 67 mm.

Does anybody know if this is the correct lens cap?

Thank you!

Yes, it is -- it's a bit expensive, but it's the right one.
The V-S 18-86 is the only Kern lens in that size range that got an alu cap, so you can't go wrong.

Thank you very much :)

If that is a bit expensive, do you know of a place/website which would have it for cheaper?

I think you should not be so worried about the cap. Do try to get a near size of a plastic bottle cover then paste certain layers of paper to exactly cap the lens. Does this make sense to save that money for other accessories?
