Sony Alpha lens/body caps question

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I am trying to figure out if Sony Alpha DSLR cameras ever came with lens rear/back caps that had the "alpha" logo on it? Or did Sony ever make them as accessories? Or is it only a counterfeit product that I've been seeing on ebay and other places? (example: rear lens cap with alpha logo)

 

And what about a body cap as well? Were those legit products or is that another fake product that Sony did not make?

 

Thank you for your help and your time!

Re: Sony Alpha lens/body caps question

Sony's body caps and rear lens caps all simply say "SONY".

 

The front lens caps are available from Sony with "SONY", "ZEISS", "G", or "α".

One third-party manufacturer makes lens caps that have their own logo, which can look a lot like the orange alpha, but it's not.

Thank you for the helpful information! I prefer to not buy third-party things that aren't actually made from Sony!
