    Very many of us use lenses which are far to large in diameter than Mr. Salomon has directed us to. The solution of a DIY with simple materials suffices.

    That would not be the retail price in the USA or Canada.

    The Canadian distributor is Nadel in Toronto. They sell to retail Canadian dealers.
    The USA distributor is MAC Group. They also sell to retail dealers.

    Why not check the cost at retail with, say, B&H?

    Why would I need to do that when I have a 3d printer
    By the way, that link doesn't have any 125mm lens caps.

    Finally printed the lens cap for my Schneider 360/6,8 lens. It is a good fit. Thanks for the file Click image for larger version.

    As a plus, you won't have to worry about anyone stealing it.
