    An easy way to transport your 600mm.

    By B Mac

    Comments about Lightware Z600 Long lens 600 Case:

    Great construction and it makes it easy to transport your 600mm lens. Fits great and it's so much better than carrying around a trunk case.

    Comments about Lightware Z600 Long lens 600 Case:

    I bought this case for a Canon 600mm f/4 lens. I also own a similar Lightware case for the Canon 300mm f/2.8 lens, and it has held up quite well. The Z600 case does not seem to fit the lens as snugly as the case for the 300mm, so, I plan to add some foam lining for better protection, along with a solid piece of honeycomb plastic for the base of the case (to better protect the large lens element. The other alternative on the market is a backpack style bag (not sure, maybe Tenba or Tamarac).

      Comments about Lightware Z600 Long lens 600 Case:

      Puchased this to hold my 500 mm lens and camera when traveling, makes it easy when on safari, grab and go. It's well constructed, made in the USA, and lightweight. Has multiple straps, which mades it easy to secure to a vehicle seat or carry if needed. Easy to fit in the overhead of an airplane if needed. While it will never be a rugged as the hard case that is supplied with the lens either a 500 or 600 ml lens, in my opinion it's so much easier for travel because it's well padded.

      Z 600 Long Lens Case

      • Storing Gear

      Comments about Lightware Z600 Long lens 600 Case:

      This product would have been acceptable to me if it had some sort of Shoulder Harness for carrying, and a couple of pockets with a zip fastener for accessories. It is very difficult to carry such a big case [which becomes heavy when fitted with a 500mm f/4 telephoto + camera] over long distances with only a shoulder strap.

        Comments about Lightware Z600 Long lens 600 Case:

        Cannons provided hard case is too heavy and bulky. The Lightware case provides protection in a compact (relatively speaking) soft case that is much easier to travel with

          Comments about Lightware Z600 Long lens 600 Case:

          I bought this case to transport my Canon 800mm IS as hand baggage around the world. My lens complete with lenscoat cover and travel coat fits perfectly even with the original foot on the lens without causing any peeling back of the covers. When carrying the case with lens in it, it is functional and light, (given that this is a heavy lens),and the square shape is very advantageous when outting in overhead bins or carying on top of a wheelie bag, (tip but the wheelie bags with 4 wheels then roll rather than drag its much better).

          My one slight moan is the trap pack is not big enough for a 1 series body but is useful for a bunch of other stuff and I have not been brave enough yet to transport my gear with the body attached to the lens with the trap pack removed

          Overall this is for me a perfect solution to fly with my super telephoto and I heartily reccomend this product.

            Lens case easily fits and protects a Canon EF500mm f4.0 lens and camera body.

            Wish it had a backpack strap type addition.

            Comments about Lightware Z600 Long lens 600 Case:

            Product is great and meets what I expected. Only concern is space, I put a Lens Coat on the lens and it tends to roll off when pulling the lens from the case. Had the same problem with the 300 but I bought a case for the 400 and it works great. I wish the case was just a little larger.
