      I just got the Realtree Lens cover for my canon 500 f/4 IS lens. The lens cover is just what I wanted to protect my lens from scratchs, bumps and dings. The lens cover fit perfect and was easy to put on my lens. The cover was camo so it also works well when I am out into the field shooting wildlife photos. Great product I gave it five stars.

      I purchased two of these - for both the Canon EF 300mm f2.8L IS and Canon EF 500mm f4L IS. They are just slopply made - stitching holes around clear plastic window started to rip open when putting the coat on the center portions of both lenses. There are no holes pre-cut in the clear plastic window for the various switches. You have to cut them in yourself. Instructions say that you can operate the switches without cutting - NO WAY!!! When you cut the respective holes, the window buckles and looks ugly. The only part that fits reasonably well was the cover/coat for the lens hood. The rest is JUNK.

            Was able to put this product on my lens in a few minutes, easy to place on lens. I no longer have that bright white lens when trying to photography wildlife at close range. I haven't tried in the field yet but observing others in the field it seems to work quite well. It provides great protection for the lens.

                    I bought it as a means of giving the lens a little more protection while hiking with it slung externally. While I haven't been in any demanding situations with it yet, I would imagine that it'll do it's job

                            White lenses are not ideal when seeking timid birds etc, so a well fitting cover is good for cutting reflection and providing bump protection for costly gear.Not the easiest thing to initially put on your lens, though.

                              Installed easy enough in about 15 minutes. Comes in a couple of pieces you stretch over the lens and into place. It is neoprene so it has a nice fit. You have to remove the tripod mount to install the one piece so make sure you have the appropriate sized allen wrench before you get started. There is one piece that has adhesive backing on the one side. You are supposed to cut this long strip to fit the part of the lens where the tripod mount is. You have to cut a few pieces since the strap mount, etc. are there. Be very careful removing the adhesive backing. On the first piece, I removed the adhesive with the backing and didn't realize it. It doesn't re-adhere to the back of the neoprene very well. I suspect I'll have to cut another piece and try again.

                              The clear plastic that goes over the lens controls covers the buttons, but it is pretty easy to manipulate them through the plastic. The instructions say you can cut holes into the clear plastic to have better access to the controls, and I have seen people do this so I just always assumed it came that way. Appreciating that it would add cost to the product to just do this at the factory, it would not be terribly expensive for them to include a small paper template so you could have a guide to cut it yourself. I'd rather have the holes to access the buttons than the plastic covering them.

                              Other than my suggestions, the product is quality made and I'm glad to have something to protect my lens from minor scrapes and bumps.

                              Good and very snug fit, took me a few minutes to put all the pieces on. Like I said...Overpriced for 4 chunks of neoprene and some stitching:(

                              In the big picture...Tis cheap insurance for expensive glass.

                                Comments about Lens Cover for the Canon 500mm f/4 IS Lens (Realtree Advantage Max4 HD):

                                I just got the Realtree Lens cover for my canon 500 f/4 IS lens. The lens cover is just what I wanted to protect my lens from scratchs, bumps and dings. The lens cover fit perfect and was easy to put on my lens. The cover was camo so it also works well when I am out into the field shooting wildlife photos. Great product I gave it five stars.

                                  The LensCoat system covers the lens and assists your efforts to be less noticeable during your wildlife photo sessions in the field. The cover also helps protect the lens from bumps and nicks.

                                      Got this to save on weight, since the factory issue cap is a bit big and clumsy. This is easy to put on, with the lens hood in either direction, and does a good job of protecting the lens surface with a stiff insert in the cap.

                                            Great protection for my new Canon 500mm F4 IS L lens. The only thing that I was disappointed in was the photocopied instruction sheet* that came with it. While there was a lot of written text there was only one hand drawn illustration of the 5 LenCoat pieces. I would have liked to have seen a photo included to have made the application of the pieces easier to follow. In fact I gave up on the instructions and just found a photo on the Internet of the pieces mounted on the lens which easily allowed me to finish.

                                            * For the retail price of this accessory instructions should should have include at least one photo.

                                            Also the addition of the LensCoat increases the diameter of the Len Hood making the original Canon E-163 Lens cap difficult to mount. If you do get it on it tends to crush/bend the LensCoat out of shape at the front of the lens.

                                              Excellently made and fits like a glove to protect the body of the lens. The camo is nice to have for wildlife photography. Wouldn't have ever considered owning this lens without a lens coat.
                                              I personally didn't care to have the plastic covering the switches, (many folks do though) so I removed that.

                                                Easy to use and really fits tight. It serves two purposes. One as a protection and the second is camo. One more excellent thing aasit protects the switches from being shifted during walking in the forrest. Without this coat it's very likely that some of the function you have placed in a certain position will be shifted.

                                                    Protects my investment as advertised, but a bit of a pain in the *** to put on. Might have been better if they had used double sided tape rather than attempting to stretch the cover over parts of the lens. I was afraid I was going to tear it during installation on the lens
