Hey Orb

So I got my 3 end caps and 2 72mm lens caps and 2 50mm lens caps from these guys.

Made in India stuff...all came in a nice tiny boxes, mailed with tracking confirmation, and all of them much much better than the junky lens caps at camera stores for $7 and up. These are the ones that the tabs sit flush when they are the lens... super deal for $1.50, totally satisfied!!

And the end caps even have a nice little "N" that is dannnnngerously close to being copyright infringement due to the font style...
