Ebay has these offered, sporadically, at exorbitant prices, just wondering if anyone
knows of an alternate source. Thanks.

Hi Bill,

I propose you the following: dissect the glass of a 49mm filter. Tape the outer extreme of the lens compound until the ex-filter fits by reasonable force, and then you have an Oly RC with 49mm thread accepting whatever there is out there for 49mm, including a cap.

Cheers,
Ruben

Sounds like a good idea, Ruben, thanks!:)

If it makes it easier to find one, I'm pretty certain the Trip 35 and Pen EE use the same cap...and probably any other Olys that take 43.5mm filters

Thanks, Ben, I have one being sent to me, but this is useful since I plan on getting
1-2 more 35RCs as spares (yes, I like them that much!).
