AquaTech ASCN-5 SoftCap

You Pay: $34.95
Product Highlights
  • Compatible with Nikon 500mm f/4 ED VR

The Aqua Tech SoftCap is a light and practical alternative to the leather 'snoot' style caps that are delivered with Canon and Nikon's big telephoto lenses today.

Constructed from a pliant silicon material, the SoftCap makes a snug fit right at the end of the lens barrel and is very unlikely to come off by accident.

You'll save a bit of weight and mass; and with a big lens to carry, every bit of savings counts--on a long journey, even a straw weighs a ton.

This SoftCap fits both the older non-stabilized versions of the current lenses as well as the current models, and can also be combined with Aqua Tech's SoftHood collapsible fabric hoods.

            Comments about AquaTech ASCN-5 SoftCap:

            The Nikon OEM cover is typical. The Aqua Tech is light, very sturdy and allows you to stand it up firmly on end without worry. Also, the Aqua Tech fits in my front pants pocket, where I always put my other lens covers.. Do yourself a favor and buy it today.

              Comments about AquaTech ASCN-5 SoftCap:

              I wanted a better cap for my Nikon 14-24. The Nikon cap, while providing protection for the glass, scuffs up the barrel of the lens and is subject to falling off. This cap works really well. And the insert does provide good protection for the glass as well.

                  Fits my Nikon 500 f/4 VR just great! Doesn't touch the front element and it allows me to stand the lens upright if I need to.
