Fuji's new XM-FL lens cap is a 24mm (37mm equivalent) f/8 pancake lens cap weighing only 32 grams. It has built-in filters that rotate into place  --  a cross-star filter, soft filter, lens protection filter, and blank so it can operate as a standard lens cap. Focus is from 1m to infinity.

In order to use the cap as a lens the camera must first be programmed from the menu to shoot without a lens.

It is expected to be available on February 26th for $87.
