      Bought this for my new Canon T2i with a 18-135mm lens. A little bit of pushing and stretching was required at first, but after that it fit just fine. The Zing cover that fit my old Canon EOS 300D with a standard 18-55mm lens was too large for the T2i body and too short for the longer lens.
      These covers are great for cushioning a camera in your carry-on bag when traveling, and offer some protection during bad weather
      I like the velcro closure under the lens which makes it easier to get off and on, and that it can be dangled from the camera strap by a hook or easily shoved into a bag or pocket until needed. Also, the color is a much darker blue than it looks online. I had planned to turn it to the black side, but found it unnecessary. I'm very happy with this product.

      I have the standard SLR cover and really like it. The design is a bit different with the zoom cover, and I find it a little cumbersome. Also, extra velcro catches on things. I wish they made one sized in between the standard SLR and standard SLR Zoom, as the Zoom cover is quite big on my Kx and 50-200mm lens.

        Nice when just carrying the camera and lens. Offers a little protection from bumps and rain sprinkles. The only thing I don't like is the velco catches on to the case but its not that bad.

          I love these types of covers. They are great for easy use and protecting the camera. I do a lot of backpacking and biological field work and keep my camera in my pack much of the time (top pouch for easy access). This cover protects my camera and lens while in the pack and comes off easily and quickly when I need it. Also a great plus is how light weight it is. Perfect for people doing a lot of outdoor work.

            Comments about Standard SLR Zoom Cover (Gray):

            Using a daypack for a camera bag works well for backcountry hiking and disguises a pack full of expensive lenses in more civilized settings, but it can place loose cameras and lenses in jeopardy. The Zing SLR zoom cover was an elegant solution, taking up little pack space while giving a snug layer of neoprene over delicate camera controls and glass. My Canon 60D and zoom are well protected with the Zing, but they also give me the ability to protect the camera outside of the pack, which I occasionally do when hiking. I took a few tumbles on a recent backcountry hike, and my camera and zoom survived just fine. It takes more than a few seconds to unsheathe the camera when one needs to use it, and it is not a waterproof case, but it performs exactly as expected. A larger lens with a lens shade in the stored position will fit fine, but the tight fit requires a few extra seconds to remove the cover.

              The cover works with my D3100 and 55-200mm lens just fine. The velcro strap wraps around the lens and holds the cover on pretty well. It is a streachy tight fit, but covers the camera pretty well. I felt comfortable with a light mist that the camera was still protected.

              I would say for me I've had to get used to taking the cover off and putting it on. The cover is snug. And the attachment to keep the cover with the neck strap is not easy to attach and detach. But it is nice to have.

                wrestle a little bit to get canon slr with zoom 55-250 in and out of it, but not too bad. using it as protection for camera and lens within small daypack.

                    excellent for protecting smallish DSLR with large lens within another bag. Velcro around lens doesn't seem as durable as the velcro-less design of the non-zoom Zing covers, but does accommodate much longer lenses.

                    I bought this SLR zoom cover when I went on a trip to Alaska this May. It is the first time that I had brought my SLR on a trip, I usually just use a point and shoot but I was very happy with this product. It gets used to getting your camera in and out of but once you did it a couple of times it really works well. I didn't want to have to carry around a clunky large camera bag and this worked perfectly, I just stuck it in my back pack and off I went. Protected my camera perfectly. I am glad Ii bought this product because I wasn't going to at first.

                    I use this product to cover my Canon EOS XTi. Instead of lugging my hard case for this camera on my shoots, I use my new Zing cover and place it into my back pack. It protects against scratches. I like it.

                      I use this case as my everyday means of protection, although will use something more stout if warranted. It's lightweight and easy to slip on and off.

                      I recently bought a Canon T2i, but have no camera bag. I was leaving for a cruise to Alaska, and really needed protection for my new toy. I came across the cases, but didn't like any of them. Then the neoprene section came up, and I made a list of several to look at in-store. I had actually chosen a different cover, but once I saw them all, I felt this one would give better overall protection.
                      In the field, I was very happy. It fits the kit lens easily, and was just a bit snug on the 70-300mm lens I rented. (Nature is far away sometimes.) It comes with a short (4-5") clip-on strap, so you can attach the cover to the camera strap. I preferred taking it off completely. It WAS windy where we were.
                      As I stated in the title, this cover performs very well. The only real drawback is that it looks kind of silly. Especially with the kit lens. But I wanted function, not form. This does the job.
                      I like the color, but it is reversible to black.

                            I have the standard SLR cover and really like it. The design is a bit different with the zoom cover, and I find it a little cumbersome. Also, extra velcro catches on things. I wish they made one sized in between the standard SLR and standard SLR Zoom, as the Zoom cover is quite big on my Kx and 50-200mm lens.

                                I went to B&H looking for a sort of a camera glove for my digital SLR so that I can feel comfortable putting my camera in a tote bag without feeling that it will get scratched up or too bounced around. (I have a proper camera bag for home storage, but it would be much too much to carry around with on a regular basis.) [...] I LOVE that it is reversible. It can be black when I want it to be inconspicuous, but it can be grey when I want to be able to see it easily in a bag full of other things.

                                  Not only did the strap break the first time I used it, my new $900 camera and $400 lens crashed to the concrete floor and went flying across the room. I actually would like a replacement AND a refund. Hopefully the camera is not damaged long term - it seems to work but not sure if damage will show-up later. Very unhappy with what was a very cool product.

                                    The cover itself is very easy to use and seems to give some basic protection to the camera overall. The only problem is that I have a Canon 20D with the battery grip, which adds several inches to the camera body itself. Unfortunately, the cover does not even come close to fitting over that.

                                    So, if you are looking at getting this for anything other then a basic body and medium sized zoom lens, look elsewhere. I think I will just get a small case for the unit I have.

                                      Fit my camera snug. Material stretches well and would accomodate different camera shapes. Velcro is strong and reliable. You get protection from scratches and bumps while carrying the camera or setting it down, and without the bulk of a camera bag that fits less like a glove.

                                      Note: You will not be able to leave a lens hood on the lens unless your lens and hood are substantially smaller than the lens cover portion of the Zing cover. A lens hood otherwised makes it quite difficult to fit a camera with an attached lens into the zing cover.

                                      But if you are o.k. with leaving off a lens hood and a lack of pockets for accesories, the product is excellent.
