Does anyone have a source for these? (A lens cap with a flange which covers the electrical contacts on the lens). My 1.7x AF adapter came with one and now I want more!

Thanks, but I had already found that guy and he's sold out. His ones were also "Looser fit than average on some lenses" which didn't fill me with confidence

Look on ebay from Hong Kong - it appears that they've cloned the genuine Pentax design used on A series lenses and the results are an excellent fit.

Aha, perfect, thanks. I never think to check the US shops.

Thanks DM, I'll do that. I'm actually going to Hong Kong in 3 weeks, must scout out the situation with local Pentax shops.

Genuine Pentax rear caps are available from SRS at around 6. Free post to forum members.

These ones are not genuine Pentax, but are almost as good:

Those look like the ones I found - mine have "PK" rather than Pentax on them though. I bought them as a set of one lens cap and one body cap, but can't remember which seller they came from now.
