Bayonet Type Cap for the 35/2.0 Ultron?

The thick original lens cap of the new small Ultron is annoying and prone to lose it. Where can I find a bayonet Type cap? Old Zeiss Ikon lenses have them (larger diameter) and supposedly very few C/V lenses, but l'm not aware which one.

I have no useful suggestions, but I agree that Voigtlander lens caps* really suck. I've had five CV's now and I love them all, but the caps have been consistently terrible.

Well, nice to get that off my chest

*To clarify, I specifically mean the plastic pinch type, not the metal ones.

I never lost one of the push-on felt-lined caps of the V/C LTM-lenses. They didn't enhanced the size of them notably. Too sad they stop making this lenses more and more! The cap of the 35/2 gets off each time storing it in tight cases (and I don't carry suitcases when using my RF stuff).

The 28mm 3.5, 35mm 2.5, 50mm 2.5 metal caps are very nice. The pinch type as on the 35 1.4 are always falling off

Measure the lens' exterior diameter and try one of the various Kaiser push-on caps B&H sells.

Push-on caps not fitting well on lenses with outer bayonets. I already tried some of my stock, 43mm (Schneider, too tight) or 44mm (too lose).
Workaround is a snap-on cap thinner than the Voigtlander, which will not drop so quickly -- and keep waiting for someone making caps fitting the outer bayonets.
