      I have only just received this lens cover and have not yet had the chance to use it in the "field". My main reason for its purchase, was for protection of the lens, this lens is expensive and, with common use, as with all equipment, there is the chance of an accidental "ding" here and there. As this is a lens which mostly, is to be mounted on some form of "Gimbal" head, on a tripod, probably, 95% of the time, this means the chances are much greater, that it will suffer superficial damage to the outer casing of the lens, with the continued mounting and dismounting to the head. The second reason for the purchase was, having read other comments in forums etc., in regards to cold weather use, the lens cover also gives some degree of protection to ones hands. The lens coat is a very good, tight fit, care has to be taken when putting it on the lens, it is not something that should be hurried, I spent about 1 hour making sure everything was correct, as some pulling and stretching is involved, too fast an application could damage any part of the cover, which would essentially, ruin, the "whole", as, the lens cover comes in 5 separate pieces. Although not a cheap item, (what camera equipment is), I feel very confident, that this lens coat will offer me good protection and will do exactly what it was designed for, on the one hand, a seemingly very simple solution for a problem with a lot of initial concern. In terms of cost, the lens coat is probably worth twice the asking price, if it protects as I think it will and even, one day, might bring its rewards in a much higher re-sale value, when and if, the lens is to be sold and the lens looks new.

      I was going to get the lens cover anyway, to avoid getting divots in my 500mm when I inevitably whack it against something. I like the camo, and any product that makes me look dorkier to the general public is a must-buy for me.

      The cover actually looks ok, wildlife doesn't flee at the sight of it, and the general public has responded with favorable commentary rather than ridicule.

      But...

      Is no one at LensCoat able to cut the neoprene in a straight line? Pieces look like they were cut freehand. Not very inspiring. Also, the poor fit of the front piece covers the focus operation bottons at the front of the focus ring; who thought this was a good idea? There are clear plastic windows for the various other buttons, but not for this? Also, was it really impossible to have a section that covered the focus ring?

      All in all, a decent product idea let down by poor execution. Way overpriced for the quality, but still the only real item in its class for someone who's not a dedicated do-it-yourselfer.

      Would I buy it again? Maybe, but with low expectations and I'd grit my teeth while doing it.

            I use camo lens covers on all my long lenses. It is the first thing I buy after the lens. Not only do they protect the lens, but they may also prevent an unwanted glare at that critical moment when you are about to capture a great shot.

              Used to help conceal the big lens from sharp-eyed subjects in the wild, this cover offers good camo. However, to my surprise it leaves a fair amount of the lens body uncovered.

                  great material, great padding.
                  imo, the cons are.. no cover for focusing ring (but it's already shown in the pic). and it blocks some important marks on the lens.
                  (VR on/off and tripod collar). and i also hate the clear plastic that cover my af limiter. somewhat little bit annoying.

                          I am very satisfied with the construction of the product. It certainly can add value to your lens if you ever want to sell it.With this cover on your lens will always look like new. It is a bit cumbersome to install ( you have to remove the tripod foot) but once you have it on it makes for a great protection.

                                  Lens coat does not provide a cover for the focus ring.
                                  I cannot see any reason for this I had to make one myself with camo tape.
                                  For a product that cost over $100 I was disappointed with this ommission

                                      Great protection for my lens. It is well fitted, although it does cover the AF-on buttons located on the lens.

                                        I use the product primarily for protection of the lens. Fit was good. No real negatives, except maybe little pricey. Great camo for those who desire that also. I use on all my more expensive lenses, sure helps preventing nicks, etc. when you bang into something accidently.
