    Any ideas on how to secure the lens cap to the camera body with a lanyard? It is a cute little thing that my big fat fingers keep dropping. It is often difficult to put back on and I've dropped it a few times already. Sticky things tend to fail after a while and I'm not keen on drilling holes in the cap to tie some string through it if it is visible. It would be costly to replace it.

    I gave up with mine and put it away. I bought a b + w protective filter and the lens hood instead.

    Buy a cheap pinch cap from eBay, many come with a small hole to attach a piece of string. If no hole just drill one. I do this for all my lenses as the original cap usually isn't as good.
