Nikon's rear lens cap issues.
I bought a Nikon DSLR which came with two kit lenses. I was shocked to see how cheap the rear lens caps which came with the lenses. The rear lens caps are transparent and the material is some kind of soft transparent plastic tupperware material.
When I twisted the rear lens cap, I realized that there were shavings of the plastic lens cap which landed on the side of the lens, but luckily not on the actual glass.
I realized that Canon doesn't even make such cheap rear lens caps, but proper black hard rear lens caps even on their cheapest lenses.
Anyone here had problems with these rear lens caps from Nikon? Like, popping out by itself, because they're so soft. What's even more disturbing is that if you drop it, or you have some stuff in your bag and it gets bumped by something, it will fall out. Now, there's a good chance it will get scratched or having some dust on the actual lense itself. Not cool.
