        Hi Louis, i ordered 2 from Amazon. size 46. I put on on my 50 1.2 and it works pretty good. There is a darkness to the corners that is not really full blown vignetting but not real great either. If you crop then I see no issue. Not sure what other lenses I can fit the other 46 on yet. I ordered a range of different sizes from Asia will let you know after they get in. All in all i think its the best idea since sliced bread. But i hate lens caps so it does not take much. Cheers.
