    My Vortex Defender lens cap in today. It was easy to put on and doesn't affect the 75mm lens viewing area at all. Thanks for posting this up Brian. I've already ordered a second one for my other Zeus.

    Yeah, I just ordered a smaller version for my 42mm Zeus as well. Glad you found the information useful.

    Mine came in yesterday, went on in about 10 seconds. A second one ordered this morning for my buddy's 75mm. Funny to think that a $6K scope comes with a "$50" rubber lens cap that is very inferior to a $18 option from Amazon and VOrtex. Thank you very much for the tip. If I were a NV dealer, I think I'd be stocking up on these and including them with purchase.

    What size did you get for the 42mm Zeus? 40-46mm or 50-59mm?

    YAY!!!!!! The original caps are certainly functional, but I replaced my 42mm Zeus simply because I liked the flip cap so much better. It is easier to open and easier to close.

    My buddy just ordered a Zeus 75. So the largest vortex cap is what he needs right?

    FYI, the Vortex Defender 50 (55-59mm) cap will fit the 50mm Zeus line (PTS536) of scopes.
