Will this fit in the empty slot of the 5-lens hard case?
Asked by: Christopher
Yes, it will fit the empty slot on the 5 lens set but it will be tight since it does protrude above the edge of the top. It will push on the foam on the lid of the case. it is safe to store it in the 5 lens case but just know that it is a very snug fit but will not damage the damage and is safe to store in there.
