Rob asked me to share his Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens Cap modifcation with you:
 
Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens Cap Modifcation
 
" ... I modified the lens cap of the 8-15 4.0L fisheye lens with two small pieces of Velcro (only the soft part). The result is very satisfying! The lens cap won’t fall of anymore even when one presses one or both clips." (thanks Rob)
 
Rob modified his original Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens cap in a similar way - using much more velcro for that mod.

Chuck Westfall (Canon USA) has provided information about the weather sealing found in some pre-officially-sealed lenses.
 
According to Mr Westfall, "Pre-1999 white EF lenses such as the 200/1.8L, 300/2.8L, 300/4L, 300/4L IS, 400/2.8L, 400/5.6L, 500/4.5L, 600/4L, 35-350/3.5-5.6L, 70-200/2.8L, and 100-400/4.5-5.6L all lack mount gaskets but have moderate dust and moisture resistance for their switches, focusing rings and zoom rings where applicable."
 
For example, "The EF400mm f/5.6L USM lens was designed before Canon started offering "dust and drip resistant" lenses, so it does not have a mount gasket or a built-in protective filter. However, it does have seals under the switches and the focusing ring, so it is weather-resistant to a point. For best results in wet conditions, I suggest using a clear filter on the front of the lens and covering the lens barrel with a plastic wrap."
 
"Canon will not retrofit mount gaskets to EF lenses that were not introduced with that feature." I of course had to ask that question.
 
(Thanks John!)

Some reviews are definitely more fun to create than others. The Zeiss 100mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens review was definitely one of those. I'll try to get some sample photos online soon.
