LensCoat LC1004002M5 Overview

Dedicated to the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS II telephoto, this Realtree Max5 Lens Cover from LensCoat provides waterproof protection for your investment. It also safeguards against scratches and impact, while offering a thermal barrier to keep your hands warm in cold conditions. The cover is easy to install and remove, sliding on like a sleeve and leaving no residue on the lens. It has clear, flexible PVC windows over the AF and IS controls and the distance scale. A small hole lines up with the camera's mount indicator to make quick, easy work of aligning the lens with the mount.

Another benefit of the LensCoat is that it helps break up the shape of your lens, making it less noticeable to wildlife so you're less likely to scare them off. The cover is made in the USA from 100% closed-cell neoprene. Included with it is an additional piece designed for use when the lens is zoomed out to 400mm. This accessory can be attached and removed quickly via the touch-fastener strip.

fit is ok but not perfect

The lens hood part of the cover fits a bit too tight and keeps the lens hood for connecting to the camera properly

Great cover

Used it the other day on my lens while using the wire on a fence to stabilize better. Had no fear of acquiring any scratches

To many CONs for this price

I own it for almost two months and still don't know If I would buy it again. The material is excellent and I like the camo. Most parts fit well and protects the lens which is the best thing about the cover but... First disappointment was the last part which doesn't fit and often slides towards camera. Most of the time it doesn't matter, but if you are wildlife photographer and time is important for you, then it is a big problem. While changing camera or attaching extender, the cover part slides between camera and the lens. First you need to fix cover and start other manipulations. This part also covers the lens buttons and might be a problem for fast access. I would be happier if buttons wont be covered. Next thing is a part which goes on zoom barrel. With part on, you cannot zoom out. Hood cover makes problems when attached backwards for travel. I just leave the cover on only for protection but I will never pay this much money in future.

Generally good but has drawbacks

I used the LensCoat Cover on a recent month-long birding trip to the tropics. In general, I thought it worked well. Pros:  Protects the lens hood and the mid section of the 100-400 very well. Color is nice and muted. Cons: I didnt use the removable zoom section because (a) it would take too much time to remove, and (b) I didnt want to have to keep track of it while actively shooting, or (c) when you want to walk with the lens at the 100 mm setting rather than the longer 400 mm setting, again where to stash it so its not lost. (When you are hiking trails and crossing streams, its best not to have the extended lens dangling.) Maybe if some sort of wrist loop was attached to it that would allow you to whip it off and not loose it, it would make that section more usable. The narrow section that covers the Tighten-loosen ring slipped around a bit. And, as mentioned in other reviews, the section that covers the manual/auto focus slide is not the easiest to access through the plastic window.

Great Concept, Too Many Moving Parts

By Vanessa

The lens has so many moving parts, it's hard to make a proper cover. However, it would have been nice if there were a section that fit around the lens shoe (foot/tripod thingy) without having to remove it. That's about the only adjustment in the design that would have made it better. Again with so many moving parts, they did a descent job trying to accommodate & include everything.

Camo to help my white lens

Helps conceal my white lens when sitting in my blind.

Fine but overpriced

More of less does what it says it should. Overpriced for what it is and half of the pieces simply get in the way. I'm sure there's a better way to protect your lens and add camo.

Great protection and appearance

By Jon

Fits and works well considering all of the separate pieces required for this lens design. Looks good and offers great protection against wear, bumps and scratches. I had considered purchasing this for some time and I should not have waited. Many people may not need this level of protection, but if you do I can recommend this.

Any suggestions as to best camp pattern? Arctic trip (only 1) and safaris in Africa top list. I am thinking digital as it seems to just break up the lens but new to this
Asked by: Cathy
Unfortunately, there is not one particular LensCoat pattern designed for use both in Arctic conditions and in jungle/savannah environments. Most photographers that will be shooting in multiple locations will purchase multiple lens coats. If you will only be taking each trip once and you do not want to invest in multiple lens coats, you may either use the lens as-is, or purchase the pattern for the location in which you think you will take the most images. The Digital Camo option would be good for arctic conditions and may have slightly more flexibility, but the color may stand out in sandy or wooden environments found in the jungle/savannah, for which the Realtree Max5 may be a better option.

question

Does this fit the older style 100-400 L push/pull style lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, this one will only fit the version 2 lens, if you have. Version1, you will need the cover specifically made for that lens, hope this helps

question

How do you zoom with the neoprene on the barrel, or is it stuck at 400?
Asked by: James
It can only be added when fully extended, it's attached with Velcro. So if you have it on a tripod at 400 or if keep extended to 400 I use it, otherwise I leave it off most of the time

question

Sorry I have another question. I am really considering buying this wrap. But it is costly! Do you really feel it gets you closer to birds if you are also wearing camo clothes and hat? What if you are not wearing camo clothes, then does it even matter? Thank you.
Asked by: Rhiannon S.
I would say that it can, provided you are stealthy in other ways as well (no sudden movements, camo clothes). Breaking up the head profile is important, because birds get most nervous when they perceive they are being looked at. But it won't fool birds all the time, and there are limits.The wrap also protects your lens from scratches, so you could look at it as an investment, if you ever want to sell your lens one day.

question

Is this an all one piece cover or several pieces? Is it easy to take on and off?
Asked by: Rhiannon S.
There is a separate piece for each section of the lens. It is fairly easy to take on and off but I leave mine on all the time except for the zoom section. The smaller pieces tend to shift some and have to be adjusted but it is still a great product.
