Thread: Exotic wood lens cap prototypes - please respond to the poll

    Re: Exotic wood lens cap prototypes - please respond to the poll

    OK, aside from scratching the metal if they are not lined what about:
    Cracking over time?
    Exapnsion and contracting with temperature, humidity?
    Critters that may be attracted to the cellulose or other materials?

    And, as others pointed out. Outgassing?

    Lenses have been made for a very long time but while I have seen lots of metal, plastic, leather caps I can't remember ever seeing one made from wood. Why is that?

    Kindof like sun glasses. The value of the item is directly related to how easly they are lost. ie cheap glass' I keep for years, expensive ones, only a few month.

    Guess not. And the OP has been MIA for about 18 months or so, and the links in his signature are broken.

    Go figure.
