Is there a lens cap, perhaps after-market, for the G5 that will stay on?:roll:

I think a sensible option is to purchase the lens adapter which allows for a 58mm filter. That takes the worry out of the lens cap falling off allowing something invasive to scratch/mark the lens.

I am in the same boat with the G3. Darn thing doesn't stay on.

Why not try 3 dabs of silicone inside the rim of the cover. The silicone is rubber and sticky. You could apply it with a toothpick or something similar.

This has worked for me ona couple of occasions. I took some of the label tape from a Dymo label maker and cut it in strips about 1/8 inch by 3/4 inch or so. Iremoved the protective film on the back of the tape and stuck it in three areas about 120 degrees apart around the outside circumferenceof the filter. These tape stripsincreased the outside diameter of the filter just enough that the lens cap that came with the cmaera (in this case it was a 35mm SLR) would fit on and make a snug fit with the lens cap. The tape comes in many colors, so you can use whichever best matches your camera. In my case I used black, and you could never tell that there was any foreign object stuck on the edge of the filter. I'm not familiar with the G5 so I don't know if this will work for you, but it might be worth a try. Good luck.
