AquaTech 1406 overview

  • 1Description

Serving as a slimmer alternative to the manufacturer's original lens cover, the ASCN-4 Soft Cap from AquaTech is compatible with the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR, AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR, and AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lenses. It protects the front element from dust, dirt, and scratches when the lens is not in use. The cap is crafted from waterproof, flexible silicone rubber, and fits snugly on the end of the lens without touching the front element's surface. Additionally, it can be used in conjunction with AquaTech's SoftHood collapsible fabric hood.

    AquaTech 1406 reviews

    ASCN-4 Soft Cap for Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8 & 800mm f/5.6 ED VR Lenses is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aquatech Soft Cap I bought 4 of these for my exotic Nikkor tale lenses. I previously had used the Don Zeck caps for my 400 mm f/2.8 and 200-400 mm f/4, but was never completely happy with the fit and bulky handle, plus the cost was high. I found these Soft Caps when looking for something to use on my recently acquired 200 mm f/2 and 300 mm f/2.8 lenses. I liked them so well I decided to replace the Zeck caps on my 400 and 200-400 lenses. They make a nice tight seal and are easy to install when the hoods are not in place. I have not seen the issues mentioned about an oily residue on the glass. The hoods do seem to attract dust that is easily rinsed off or blown off. These caps are not as easy to install with the hoods in place compared to the Zeck Cap, but they do stay in place better.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from SoftCap on Nikon 400mm f2.8 The SoftCap fits well and provides some additional cushioning to the end of the lens. Since the backpack I carry the camera/lens combo in holds the lens in the upright position resting on the SoftCap, I am assured of a bit of extra protection for my lens. The negative to this cap is that there is no mechanism whereby to store this cap in the field. I plan to place a piece of adhesive Velcro on the face of the cap so I can Velcro the cap to a strap or my tripod to keep the cap in easy reach.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits perfectly as described but grabs dust A perfect fit for the lens as described (watch the video first, that makes it easy to see the best way to handle this soft cap) and very compact when I don't use the big lens hoods. But this type of silicone rubber really collects dust that you cannot easily brush off or even wash away, so I wish it were coated with a dust-repellent material like Slick Sil. Glad I have it though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind Fits perfectly on the Nikon 400/2.8G VR. It's worth the price for the peace of mind when standing the lens face down to put a body on. Nothing unseen is going to touch the front element. It's a great alternative to carrying the nylon lens hood because it's fast to apply and remove and takes little space. This makes it worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the Nikon 800 f5.6 FL I have been using the Aquatech cap for my 600mm which I eventually sold and been very happy at how it fits the front of the lens perfectly. Now I discover that the cap for the 400mm also fits the 800mm.
    Date published: 2013-07-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits Perfect on my Nikon 400mm f2.8 This lens cap replaces the Nikon provided leather sock. Its is easy to install and remove ant does not make contact with the front element if placed on the lens just enough to secure the lens cap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice- Have Several Great product I use on several lenses. Much better fit than the Zeck Cap. I wish it had a handle like the Zeck
    Date published: 2017-03-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Products Use these on all my lenses. Easy to install and remove, the extra protection is well worth it.
