    Greetings all.

    Back "in the day," 52mm was the standard lens cap size for most Nikon lenses.

    I am wondering if there is such a size for digital cameras today? Or is there a size range that most lens caps fall in to, say 60-70mm?

    Thanks,
    ~Robert

    Nikkors have 52, 62, 72, 77, 82 and larger for the big telephotos. Currently my 60 micro is 62, my 300 f4 is 82 and all the others are 77. somehow I doubt if that helps. Take care.

    The Stanard for Pro Glass is 77mm, and smaller glass is usually standardized at 52mm. The mid-sized glass used to be standardized at 62mm, but that hasn't been popular on many of their modern mid-sized lenses.
