When I was younger, I remember my original Leica dealer explaning the
3 lugged lens cap.  Last month, I got a 3-lugged lens cap on a used
lens that I bought, and I couldn't remember what they were, but
did remember that they were intentional for something.  Now you
have revealed it.  Thanks for re-connecting those neural paths.
