Anybody know the correct size for a lens cap for the Zeiss Distagon 8mm wide angle T2.4 lens?

Thank you.

Just measure the front of the barrel in mm's

I've never had to purchase a lens cap for a cine lens though. Anybody know of a good source?

Yes I did that. But I wasnt sure if the cap is decreased by a millimter or two to ensure a snug fit on the lens.

Keneu,

Measure the OD of the front of the lens in millimeters, and then try to find that size lens cap. The lens caps take into account that they need to grip the OD of the front of the lens tightly. Some have little ribs, some have a snug fitting rib. But their size will be listed as the size of the OD of the front of the lens.

Best,
-Tim
