Cheaper and better than the Nikon LF-1 Nikon quietly replaced the LF-1 with this cap, the LF-4. Nothing Earth shattering, but the new cap is easier to grip and has a larger flange to press against the lens’ mount as well as any weather sealing. Both are nice improvements, and like the LF-1 (and unlike many knock-offs), this cap easily and securely mounts no matter how rotated. So cheaper, better (just barely), and likely soon all that will be, that’s what you get. Perhaps the lower cost is due to the LF-1 being made in Japan…

Better Seal, Easier “On/Off’s” After I purchased the relatively new 55-300mm lens, I noticed that it shipped with a different rear cap than any other lens I have purchased. This was the LF-4 cap. After making note of this, I began paying attention to the practical differences between the LF-4 and the original LF-1.

Nikon LF-4: New evolutionary essential for every Nikkor Lens As camera owners, we all go crazy at times, finding ways to protect the front element of our lenses by purchasing filters, lens cleaners, lens hoods and such. Yet what is forgotten so often is that it’s the crucial rear lens element that the light passes through just before it reaches the sensors on our cameras.
