    I just bought a canon 2x extender mark I (the old version, not the
    newer mark II) came minus the front lens cap (the side that fits
    to the lens). I have been told by several local stores that the
    regular EOS body cap will fit...but it doesn't. Perhaps the body cap
    fits the newer mark II? I'm not sure. I have also tried calling
    canon and they weren't too helpful.

    Anyway, does anyone know where I can get one of these old 2x front
    lens caps?

  2. The Standard body cap should fit it. Is there a lens that protrudes from the extender? ( entneders dont have lens, teleconverters

    The canon web site will list the options for the lens.

    Extender is the Canon name for teleconverter.
    It does have a protruding front element, so a body cap will not fit. My 1.4x
    came with a screw-on cap that fits over the protrusion.

    No, it won't fit. The 2x cap is a bit deeper.

  6. As others have replied, a regular body cap will not fit. Earlier
    extenders came with a screw-on cap, later ones with a deep version of a
    body cap. I prefer the body caps and purchased one from B&H to replace
    the original screw-on cap. Email me (privately) if you're interested in
    a screw cap.
