Has anyone noticed how finicky the mechanics of Sigma's rear lens caps are compared to Nikon's own? You've got to get them seated just right before they can be twisted and locked. They also seem to scrape against the electrical contacts sometimes. I wonder why Sigma ever used such an awkwardly-orchestrated design. I feel like I might lose a shot one day due to the clumsiness involved in putting them on when changing lenses. Is it just me, or do some others feel like replacing them with Nikon rear caps for the sake of practical use?

Sorry for the rant.
