                  The original dedicated Nikon case for the 135 F2 DC. A little bit pricey but one of the best choice to protect and store this beautiful lens.
                  A worthwhile investment.

                      I purchased this case for my 70 - 300 mm Nikon lens. The fit was tight but worked. I bought a second case for my Nikon 18 - 300 mm lens. Fits perfectly. Great protection for the lens. Hard case, nice leather finish. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quality hard case with maximum lens protection. B&H is the only store that carries this product. They ship quickly, I received both my orders in a timely fashion. I'm delighted with the product and with B&H. There is nothing negative to say about these hard cases. I bought two over the span of a few years and I will buy another to protect my next lens.

                              I use the CL-38 (two actually) to store my Nikon 105mm and 135mm DC glass when it's not in my bag. A little cumbersome for transporting your lenses, but perfect for keeping them safe at home.

                                This is a true classic - perhaps not the most practical (or least expensive), but still a great fit for my 105mm f/2DC or my 18-200mm VR (without the hood).

                                  Comments about Nikon CL-38 Hard Lens Case:

                                  Needed good lens cases for my Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR and Nikkor 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR lenses that added minimum bulk for month long trip to NZ and AU. Bought one CL-38 case and found the 105 fits well with a little additional foam padding in bottom (cut from foam mouse pad). Found that the longer 70-300 fits with bottom pad removed and thinner pad (from mouse pad) in the bottom of the CL-38 - so I bought a second CL-38. These are "old style" Nikon cases like those I had with my Nikon F lenses - same excellent quality! Lens hoods do NOT fit in the CL-38s, but these two hoods nest together well. Both lens cases, nested lens hoods, and D200 + netbook computer fit easily in LowePro Classified 250AW shoulder bag. The CL-38s were very useful for carrying these lenses in cities & on trails, in butterfly sanctuary, on boat trips, etc. (I don't like carrying a large bag or backpack, I prefer carrying just the camera and extra lenses in city or on the trail.)
