    When I bought my new lens, a lot of my photographer colleagues recommended I get a Lens Coat for it. At first I couldn't be bothered; but then I got a scratch on it. Once I got over the trauma of the scratch, I logged into my B&H account and ordered one IMMEDIATELY!

    Since it arrived the next day (as all shipments from this fantastic company do!) I quickly put it on the lens. The instructions are pretty straight forward, and the install/application was a breeze!

    I like the new look my lens has and since I shoot primarily wildlife, the camo will most definitely come in handy!

    Oh, and Im not too worried about little scratches anymore, the neoprene appears thin, but in my opinion provides a fantastic barrier of protection for my investment!

    Good thing about this product is that it makes your lens look good and saves lens body from scratches. That's it !!There is good scope to improve the quality in terms of fit/measurement as it does not fit seamless on all parts. Fitting instructions are good, however, company could add matching number stickers on the parts to make the process easier and faster for customers. Last, but the most important point, it is very much over priced for the item you get in terms of quality and quantity. The only reason I would recommend this product is that we don't have options to choose from.

    I use a Lens Coat on all my zoom lenses

      Really love this! It provides a great cushion and protects my lens from cold weather and minor scratches. It looks great, and I do think it helps disguise the lens when I am taking wildlife pictures. I use a lens coat on all my zoom lenses.

        Great fit on my new Tamron 150-600mm lens.
        Wish there was a way to adhere it better to the lens hood, something like a double sided tape or the like that could if needed be removed, but would stop the lenscoat "rolling up" when i pull it out of my lens case.
        Great cammo colours & pattern.

        Comments about Lens Cover for Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC Lens (Black):

        A little hard to install. The instructions number the different part, however the actual parts are not numbered. Some trial and error involved on the install. The final product looks good and protects the lens from end to end. Highly recommend.

          Why have an expensive lens and not protect it? This cover looks great and adds a nice layer of protection to the lens. It does, however, take a bit of effor to get on properly. The instructions are ok, but not the best. Once it's on, it'll stay on snugly and protect the lens from bumps and scratches. I'm not sure about drops, so be careful.

            This is a hefty lens and will get jostled around when I'm using it, so it needs protection from me. The coat is well done. I think it will keep the lens in good shape for years, until it comes time to upgrade. One of the things I am impressed with is all the pieces that are included for the several configurations of the lens and mount. Thanks

            Fits great. Good instructions, although pretty self evident how to install. Feels like it adds some protections from inadvertent scratch and dents

                I love how it now protects my lens. I"m not great at figureing things out, but I had a tough time seeing where to put all the parts. Now that they are on, right or wrong, I'm loving it!

                Pretty good fit on this lens. Hole for zoom lock needs to be a little larger. Don't really care for the clear plastic over switches and distance dial. Pimps out the lens nice.

                I use the Tamron 150-600 lens a lot at the beach. This lens cover fits great. I like that the last piece slightly covers the mount of the camera to better protect from sand debris and dust.

                          I use the Tamaron 150-600 for wildlife photography, and wanted this to keep the lens from getting beat up. It works fine, goes on as directed in the very brief directions. Seems quite flimsy and thin though, and after seeing it on the lens, I likely would not recommend it if a cover of thicker and stronger material were available.

                                  This cover snug nicely onto the lens itself, a couple of useless pieces
                                  Good rubber coating for rough users, prevent scratch and if you accidentally drop it lightly, it should reduce the impact a little. (Note: don't ever drop a lens)

                                  The shielding by the On/Off button is a little off but manageable to figure out which button to switch but just a little bit hard with the plastic, might wear and tear. Have to make sure everytime to make sure the right 1 is turn off.

                                    Not only does this neoprene looks pretty cool, but is also very convenient when it comes to protect the lens against bumps and scratchs. Very easy to put in place, and does exactly what it is supposed to. I love this product.
