New: Otect Q-CAP Q11600 lens cap for Leica Q, Q-P, Q2, and Q2 Monochrom cameras

A few weeks ago I reported about a new spring-loaded lens cap that was recently released in Japan. A reader sent me some additional information: the Q-CAP Q11600 is made by Otect and it fits Leica Q, Q-P, Q2, and Q2 Monochrom cameras. The lens cap can also be purchased from eBay, Leica Store Miami, and Etsy (more expensive).

Additional pictures and detailed product description:

Q-CAP Q11600 for Leica Q, Q-P, Q2 and Q2 Monochrom
The new and improved version of our CNC machined lens cap for the Leica Q range of cameras. Precision machined from aerospace grade aluminium and hard anodised in a deep black for the best protection and colour.

After over a 18 months of prototyping, testing and design work we have finally arrived at what we believe is the ultimate solution for all Leica Q users. This brand new design features a unique locking mechanism for an incredibly secure fit to the lens hood of the camera. We have been trying to get this cap to fail during testing but it just refuses to move and stays firmly affixed to the end of the hood as if held in with magnets.

Effortless to remove and install. We guarantee you will be happy with how satisfying it is to use. We owe this to the unique injection moulded shield and spring mechanism built into the product. Two tabs snap into the inner surfaces of the lens hood for a strong positive lock that leaves no play between the hood and the cap.

Still no branding on the front for a discrete, stealthy look which blends right in to the aesthetics of the camera. The surfaces of the cap are perfectly planar with the surfaces of the hood so this just feels like an extension of the camera. We now have two removal tabs on the product and you can install it either way as it is symmetrical.

Even greater clearance than the 1st generation Q-Cap, there is more than enough room between the cap and the front lens element for big filters or variable NDs. Super slim design adds less than 2mm to the length of the camera when installed.

Included Otect lens cloth keeps your lens clean when not using the cap.

Made in the Netherlands and shipped worldwide.
