Great Bag!!!

I was in the process of designing a custom bag for my 500mm. When I saw the Nikon CL-L2 soft case, I thought I would give it a try. It's perfect for my needs. Although I have to remove the additional padding it comes with, . It fits my 500mm F-4 along with my D-850 attached.

Much Easier

I love my Nikon hard case for the 500mm F4E. I purchased the Nikon CL-L2 soft case to make things a little more flexible and it works. When I need to just go, the lens is much easier to grab. When I'm not sure what I'll be capturing, I can carry the lens with me and mono pod allowing me to bring an extra lens for a different window on life. I feel safe with the lens in the case and my 500mm fits perfectly, shade and all. The construction is fabulous.

Case for the Nikon 600

I purchased this soft case for my Nikon 600mm f/4G VR lens. It comes with extra padding for different sized lenses, but I was only able to use one. Case is a perfect fit for the lens and two-section hood only; no camera body or lens cap. Comes with a zip-close Nikon Filter holder, which I put in one of the two expansions Le mesh side pockets. The shoulder strap is comfortable and also comes with a hand carry strap on top. Appears to be very well made and I'm totally satisfied with the purchase!

Will this case be usable for the AF 300mm 2.8 (the old one)
Asked by: Anonymous
You could use the CL-L2 case for the Nikon AF 300mm f/2.8. The case will be on the bigger size, but it would work.

Will this case hold a Nikon 600/4 lens? Do you have room for a teleconverter or a Nikon D810 camera body?
Asked by: Anonymous
The case fits the 600 f/4 nicely but there is not room for a camera body. I carry my camera body and teleconverter in a shoulder bag with other equipment. This is a nice field case in place of the Trunk-case the lens is usually stored in.

How is this case carried? Does it have a shoulder strap or does it have backpack straps?
Asked by: Anonymous
It has a strong web heavy padded shoulder strap. Sturdy and holds a 500mm f/4 or 200-400 f/4 lens with a pro body. I do not put a body on my 200-400 f/4 lens until I am ready to shoot and do not carry a body in this case. It has 2 straps on side and top & bottom to carry tripod, also. Has a sturdy soft handle to carry the lens from top of case.

Will this case hold the Nikon 200-500? Is it the best one for the purpose?
Asked by: David
I can not say for certain if the CL-L2 will fit the specific lens you mention, but I offer the followingfor your consideration: I bought the CL-L2 to carry and protect a fabulous and veryvintage Nikon 400mm. It does the job perfectly. The bag is just the right size for my lens (whichmeasures a full twelve inches) with some room left over to include my Nikon D300s inside the well-padded CL-L2. The bag is nicely balanced, comfortable when carried on the shoulder, and I really like the grab-and-go handle on the top. The is extra loose padding inside that wraps nicely around the lens for extra protection. When I fly on commercial aircraft, the bag fits well under the seat or in the bin. I did a lot of bag research prior to purchasing---and this one met all of my needs and has yet to disappoint.
