After months of looking, I have finally found a 35SP that hasn't been used for a long time, and thus hasn't been messed about with... After a CLA it'll compliment my 35RC nicely :)

The only thing is that it doesn't have a lens cap! Does anyone have any ideas where I can get one - eBay doesn't seem to have much. I am in the UK.

Thanks for any help!

Any standard 49mm "pinch-cap" will work. These are available at any well stocked photo store, or online at eBay, Amazon, etc.

I have an original olympus cap, send me a private message if you're interested.

I know...a Pentax cap on an Olympus body...unless you're a collector this will work...
Lens cap is a 49mm slip-on...I had it, it fit, I used it...

I really try to stay away from using lens caps on my rangefinders as it is too easy to start shooting with the cap on! Prefer using lens hoods instead.

I'll second that! Been there, done that. IMO hoods offer much more protection.
