      Exceptionally well-made & practical case

      I have 4 of these . . . plus 3 larger sizes. They give significantly more shock and dust protection than factory-provided pouches.

      Excellent for 50s, 1.4x and 2x extenders, and Lensbabys (at least the Composer).

      Great for storage as well as in the field . . . in bag or on belt. (The belt "loop" has two robust Velcro contact-points. The case would have to be hit very hard to be knocked off.) Two zipper "pulls" are convenient especially on belt.

      Superb workmanship. Durable external fabric with softer lining and 0.25" (0.635cm) padding in between -- top, bottom, and sides. (Logo is stitched on and easily removed if that's your preference.)

      Note: Another review claims this case can hold a 16-35mm. Absolutely impossible. That lens is a tight but serviceable fit -- with the shade reversed -- in the 11x14 case (what I use).

      FYI: made in China.

      Fits Canon 16-35 f2.8L II - no lens hood

      Product is quality made & fits Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II lens ONLY. EW-88 lens hood diameter too large to insert in case, otherwise product would have commanded 5-stars instead it rendered only 3-stars. Does not come with strap. Personally, planned to use as modular component system so strap is inconsequential. Not sure where or how to store EW-88 lens hood since it doesn't fit lens case when out on the field. Guess I'll have to store separately which bums me out.

      Comments about Lowepro Lens Case 8 x 6cm (Black):

      I am using that product with my smallesr lens for Canon 35mm f/2.0 with a polarised filter and with that filter and a cap it match the pouch but not perfectly.
      I would like to have a litte bit bigger pouch like 5 mm taller.
      But not the next sixe that already exist with a lowepro pouches

        Comments about Lowepro Lens Case 8 x 6cm (Black):

        Nice case, but a little to small for my Nikon 18-55mm lense. Fits but tiiight. You might want to step up a notch for this size lense.

            Comments about Lowepro Lens Case 8 x 6cm (Black):

            This case is perfect to carry a 50mm lens. I have the canon 5omm 1.8. The case has great padding and a solid zipper. It has an attachment system built in to attach to the lowepro belts that works great. I bought this one, the one for my 24-70, and the 70-200 and the deluxe belt. when fully loaded its is a bit bulky and heavy but the belt stays up and is comfortable. I would defiantly recommend this set up for a one camera body setup at concerts, events, and weddings for faster and safe lens swaps. You can buy this set up many places but you won't beat the price and the service that B&H offers!

                Comments about Lowepro Lens Case 8 x 6cm (Black):

                This case is too big for the shorty forty alone, but when stacked with a 52mm polarizing filter in its case it is a snug fit. For me, 52mm is a size I use only with this lens, so stowing the filter with the lens is convenient.

                (Note: this idea may not work with other CP filters -- the B+W MRC (44838) comes with a square molded plastic case that is not much bigger than the filter, so the fit is perfect. This storage suggestion works for a specific scenario. YMMV; Measure first.)

                Also, handy small case for miscellaneous items.

                        It gets 5 stars because it is well made and what you would expect from a Lowepro product. I bought this for my Nikon 50mm 1.4G. It fits, but just barely. The diameter is perfect, but with both caps and a UV filter on, the zipper requires a slight bit of effort to get closed - but it does close. A few more millimeters in height and it would be perfect.

                              Comments about Lowepro Lens Case 8 x 6cm (Black):

                              I have 4 of these . . . plus 3 larger sizes. They give significantly more shock and dust protection than factory-provided pouches.

                              Excellent for 50s, 1.4x and 2x extenders, and Lensbabys (at least the Composer).

                              Great for storage as well as in the field . . . in bag or on belt. (The belt "loop" has two robust Velcro contact-points. The case would have to be hit very hard to be knocked off.) Two zipper "pulls" are convenient especially on belt.

                              Superb workmanship. Durable external fabric with softer lining and 0.25" (0.635cm) padding in between -- top, bottom, and sides. (Logo is stitched on and easily removed if that's your preference.)

                              Note: Another review claims this case can hold a 16-35mm. Absolutely impossible. That lens is a tight but serviceable fit -- with the shade reversed -- in the 11x14 case (what I use).

                              FYI: made in China.

                                  My lens fits perfectly in the case. The innovative velcro belt loop opens easily, but it is very secure. That is very important for an expensive lens. The way the zipper overlaps the firm interior liner makes it a little difficult to zip on occasion, but I can live with that.

                                      Excellent build and protection quality. I like the Velcro loop on back because it allows me to strap it to any loop on a bag, strap or bag that has accessorie straps.

                                      Big plus for dual zippers mean you can unzip no matter which side you mount the case on.

                                      I have 2 Voigtlander EF pancake lenses (40mm & 20mm)and this fits them perfectly with very little excess space. Space is nice incase I want to keep lens hoods and close up filters on, then would be perfect fit. Padding is excellent and feels well protected especially needed when attaching to shoulder straps where they can be swung around often.

                                      Product is quality made & fits Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II lens ONLY. EW-88 lens hood diameter too large to insert in case, otherwise product would have commanded 5-stars instead it rendered only 3-stars. Does not come with strap. Personally, planned to use as modular component system so strap is inconsequential. Not sure where or how to store EW-88 lens hood since it doesn't fit lens case when out on the field. Guess I'll have to store separately which bums me out.

                                            I usually keep my lenses in a larger camera bag with my camera. But sometimes that bag is just too much to carry around with me everywhere. I really like these individual lens cases because they allow me to grab only what I need for the occasion (say a day hike) and put it into my day pack. The lens is still protected and I don't have to lug a huge bag everywhere!
