    Hi all,
    I am just wondering if they changed the lens cap design on the 5060?
    The tube I am using on my 5050 works well to protect the lens, and I
    sort of got used to it. Have they given some thought to improving upon
    the 5050 and come up with something better?

    Cheers, Frank

    The CLA 7 is attached to the 5060 by unscrewing the silver ring around the
    periphery of the lens barrell.

    I think you can leave it on all the time to act as a lens hood/proptector.

    The lens-end of the CLA 7 has a bayonet adapter for new versions of the 0.7 and
    1.7x converter lenses. I assume to make attaching them and taking them off
    easier and quicker.

    The lens of the 5050 is also threaded so you can attach filters.
