My CP lens is a Hoya and my UV lens is a Cokin.

The Canon lens cover clips nicely on either one of these.

I have made a photo of the UV lens in front of my A1's lens and enclosed it with this message.

So this means the factory Canon cap doesn't fit with this filter? I was on ebay about to buy it. If that is the case, have you come across a screw in cap?

Thanks,

I have a UV haze 72m and the canon cap fits just fine. I would assume they all should if they are the same dimension. Naive assumption???

Well is yours double threaded? The one in question has female threads on the outter side to allow for a 2nd filter. I thought from reading a prior note in this thread that someone mentioned that double threaded filters might not accept the factory canon cap.

Didn't realize you needed double threaded solution, sorry.

XH A1 Lenscap works with the 72mm hoya filters

It is true! I just found out for myself. The lens cap protector for the XH A1 does easily fit the 72mm hoya filters. So you can leave the filter on forever. I am happy about this. J
