Well at least this announcement is moderately more exciting (and possibly affordable) than the two lenses.

Had these for years.

A simple eBay search for Canon center pinch lens cap

will get you these (knock-offs, of course).

For a fraction of the price, I might add.

Too funny, I've been using Tamron center-pinch caps on all my Canon lenses for 10 years now.

Center pinch caps....at least we know why Canon's new lens prices are so much higher.

I no longer have to live with the dishonor of using Nikon or Tamron caps!

Those Canon caps look just like the cheap ebay knockoffs you can get for $1.00!

The ebay knockoffs even come with a lens cap leash!

Why would you need a leash when you could have one of these:

(yes, I know, shameless plug)

BTW, those eBay knockoffs aren't perfect. The Canon logo wears off over time. Still, better than the current OEM.

This is clearly why the new lense are so expensive. It's taken Canon 10 years of R&D to get those caps just right. The 24-70 f/4 is actually a $900 lens with a $600 cap.

Yep that's what I thought as well.

Seems strange that they left out the 'ultrasonic' . And also changed from the gold lettering.

I had a cheap 'knock off' centre pinch canon cap back when I had a 28-70L . It looked so much like the now official canon version (maybe canon are sourcing their caps from the Chinese eBay sellers ) . It made getting the cap off so much easier in that deep hood.
I guess at the end of the day it's only a cap .

We need white caps, they separate Canon shooters from the others, just like the long whites. Have EOSfun

I believe the reversible design is quite innovative and may justify the cost.
