Comments about Lens Cover for the Nikon 800mm AF-S f/5.6E FL ED VR Lens (Realtree Advantage Max4 HD):

This fits the 800mm like a glove, but it covers up essential features like the white lens alignment dot and all alignment dots on the 1.25x teleconverter (I'll pass on using the 1.25x coat altogether). This makes it slow to mount the lens all the while allowing more dust into the camera's mirror chamber. I'll be taking an exacto knife to mine to modify it so it is more user friendly. In my opinion this is overpriced for what it is (minimal materials, minimal labor to produce) but if you resell the lens, this will protect it and you'll get your money back then. Also protects your fingers from freezing on a cold lens barrel in cold conditions.

    Good product. For this lens its a must. It does take a little time to install, but it's easy. I actually use this in Hawaii to help reduce heat issues. A black lens in the tropical sun gets hot!

        Comments about Lens Cover for the Nikon 800mm AF-S f/5.6E FL ED VR Lens (Realtree Advantage Max4 HD):

        Good protection at a premium price. The price is the reason for the 1 star reduction. The reasoning "if you pay so much for a lens..." seems to be working, at least on me.

        The protection for the !.25 teleconverter is so narrow there is a problem keeping it on, so I keep it off. There really is nothing that can be done about this design-wise.
