The black LensCoat for Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens is a sleeve for your lens that has a 100% closed-cell neoprene coat, offering protection from weather, bumps, jars and nicks. It is an excellent option for sports shooters and photojournalists who are regularly subjected to less than optimal shooting and climate conditions. This version comes in a matte all-black finish to better blend in where desirable. Or, it can be used just for its protection value.

Clear plastic windows are located in positions that allow you to view your lens functions, including the distance scale. There is a handy alignment hole that will make mounting the lens to your DSLR body easy.

The LensCoat also provides a thermal barrier, protecting your hands from the lens' cold surface in lower temperatures. It is easy to install and remove, leaving no residue on the lens. The LensCoat is waterproof, providing protection in harsh conditions. The increased protection this covering offers can help preserve the resale value of your lens.

Features several clear plastic windows over the VR and Focus limiting switches and also the distance scale
Includes an optional piece with touch-fastening fabric to cover the fixed portion of the lens barrel when fully extended. It also includes a piece to be used when the lens foot is removed.
Helps maintain value of the lens by protecting it from any scratches
Makes the lens easier to use in cold temperatures
Easy to install and remove - leaves no residue on lens

    LensCoat for Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Protection for a Big Lens After I ordered this lens I discovered some of the challenges it presented. First, it does not fit in any of the camera bags I own. It is hand-holdable for a short time, but I expect I will usually use it with a tripod outdoors. This product covers the lens using 5 precut pieces of neoprene plus a separate piece for the hood and an extra piece to cover the extension of the lens when it is fully extended. All the controls are accessible as well, there are windows over the VR and Focus limiting switches as well as the distance scale. Given that this lens extends when zoomed, LensCoat has come up with a thoughtful design that affords some protection from the elements as well as insulation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fine but not Great The individual LensCoat segments are cut to fit well and do not shift during handling. I feel confident that the covered areas of the lens are protected from the sort of scratches and bumps encountered during normal operation. It is not a suit of armor and will not save you if you drop your lens, nor was it meant to. I subtracted two stars for the following reasons: 1. $90-$100 is steep for a bit of cut neoprene. I paid the premium to avoid needing to construct my own. 2. The lens switches are difficult to toggle through the clear plastic window. I will likely cut the plastic out. Likewise, the hole for the zoom lock is too small to see which position the switch is in. However, operation of the switch is not hindered. 3. If you photograph subjects that may require sudden zooming, the LensCoat section for the portion of the lens that appears when zoomed to 500mm is useless. You cannot zoom out without first removing this section.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Lens coat used it for a Nikon 200-500mm/5.6 lens. at first sight upon opening the packet it felt like pieces of camouflage material - the picture sheet solved it!! i laid them out on the table and it was a piece of cake thereafter. The lens looks GREAT with the new coat on!! Definitely a great protective gear and GOOD LOOKING TOO!!! Immediately took it for a test run - the zoom lock window was a bit off and small too! and so was the clear window for the distance and f stop. !!! after a few attempts i got used to it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice padded lens coat I bought this for my Nikon 200-500 partially for protection and also for camouflage, I like to photograph birds and wildlife, and the camouflage vs a black lens really does make a difference, especially with birds. The lens coat comes with easy to follow instructions for putting it on the lens and has very thoughtful construction. They include a sleeve for when the zoom is extended to 500. This was an investment, a little pricey, but really good quality and meets my needs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would buy again.. It's a little bit of a hassle to put on, and it makes the notches hard to see, but overall I'm glad I bought it. A little protection from day to day use is welcomed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well protected zoom Nice fit! The velcro sleeve for extended barrel especially handy as this lens lacks dust/wx sealing. I have a love/hate relationship with lenscoats (I currently have 5) Decent protection but need to be replaced every couple of years. Pricey,so I'm takin' away a star.
