Just curious as to why nikon produce so many different body caps? My lens scope converter came with the BF-1, D2X with the BF-1A and my TC-20E II with the BF-3. The BF-3 is the only one that fits all 3 of those (and also nikon extension tubes) - so why not just manufacture the BF-3 from now on? - seems like it fits everything. It can be a bit anoying when swapping in the field.
