Finally! Canon has finally updated their outdated lens caps with a more friendly version. Canon’s ‘Mark II’ center-pinch lens caps will come in various sizes; 82mm, 77mm, 72mm, 67mm, and 58mm.

New lens caps – designed for greater ease and convenience
The newly announced Canon EF 24-70 f/4L IS and EF 35 f/2 IS will also come with newly-designed Mark II lens caps, which incorporate a hook mechanism in the center of the cover, as opposed to the sides. Simply pinching the hook allows users to quickly remove and replace caps mid-shoot, especially when using lens hoods. The re-designed lens caps will start to be rolled out across Canon’s entire EF lens range from the beginning of January 2013, and will also be available to buy separately.

No word on pricing for the lens caps but hopefully, it won't cost more than $10.
