The best thing about the lens exchange is that it allows me to remove a lens from my camera, place it in the case before removing my additional lens from the case that I am exchanging it with. The case expands easily with one hand to hold both lenses during the exchange, then just as quickly closes securely until needed again. The case also has room for a few accessories such as lens cap and filters. I love that the strap is long enough to wear across rather than just over my shoulders, much more secure. Most of my shoots are outdoors or on location in places where I cannot put my equipment down or prefer not to. My Lens Exchange Case has made lens exchanges quicker and safer! I just might buy another!

This is an interesting concept for a lens case. It is designed to carry one lens, but it folds out a bit to provide a "docking station" for a second lens while you are changing lenses.

This case did not work out for me, because I found that it really was not adequately sized for the Nikon 70-200/2.8 lens. It did fit in the case without the hood, but with the hood, it was such a tight fit that it was a struggle to remove the lens from the case. This made the lens swap process cumbersome instead of streamlined. I think the case needs to be about a quarter inch or more bigger in diameter.

Comments about Lowepro S&F Lens Exchange Case 200AW:

This case - lens carrier works well to carry an extra lens and support a second lens when swapping out lens on the camera. I use it primarily when carrying a canon 70-200mm f 2.8. However, it is a tight fit when the lens shade is on the lens and a lens coat lens cover is used as well.. You have to take extra time to make sure the 70-200 is "loosened" inside carrier before swapping lens. I have only used it mounted to a belt, so can't say how it works with the supplied strap. The belt mount is very secure when carrying and swapping lens.

Exactly What I Needed

Comments about Lowepro S&F Lens Exchange Case 200AW:

I used this in the field for the first time last week. Anytime you want to change a lens in the field, it is difficult unless you have a place to put the camera or lens down or someone to help hold things while you are making the change. This case is great! While it only holds one lens, it opens with an additional pocket which can be used to hold one lens while you pull out the second lens and attach it to your camera. You can now easily change lenses yourself with the bag hanging at you side!

Excellent lens exchange case. I shoot Fuji primes so this case may be a little overkill for me as it is fairly large.

Does not work as a lens changeing solution with pro lens.

By JB

from Vallejo Ca

Verified Buyer

Comments about Lowepro S&F Lens Exchange Case 200AW:

This product works ok as a lens storage but not great. I was told by your salesman that it would work with my 80-200 2.8 S Nikkor, its just a little small for the lens with a quick release on the foot. Its advertised to expand to allow you to place the lens you are removing in the case and have your hands free when changing lens. To do that until you removed the lens you are putting on your camera you have 2 lens in the case. As a working photographer I use high quality lens, my 28-70 2.8 has a 77mm barrel and a lens shade, my 80-200 2.8-S also has a 77mm barrel and lens shade. these will not fit into this carrier, even when its extended, and if I try to use it that way when I remove the lens that was in the case I risk dropping a $1,500.00 lens. It just does not work.
So my final conclusion is that while its a good case it does not work like its advertised to.

I only have one camera body. I Use it to change a canon 24-70mm and a 70-200mm, and its amazing. Comes with pocket for your lens cap so you don't have to worry about loosing them. The quality and construction is excellent. If you want to travel light this is a excellent product.

    Comments about Lowepro S&F Lens Exchange Case 200AW:

    Decent lens case, very innovative design: I really like being able to hold the existing lens while swapping to the next one within the case's design. It's only fault, and it keeps me from using it more, is that it cannot accommodate the lens' hoods. Its just too narrow.

            Watched a few YouTube videos for tips on how to safely use it. Exchange case works well if you open it up so lens fits in pouch more securely. Would like the option of attaching filter carrier to the case itself rather or maybe in addition to two mesh side pockets. Will probably try attaching filters to strap. Overall happy with purchase.

                Perfect for my frequent juggling act with a 300mm and 70-200mm. Although this holds just one lens, the two separate pockets let you slide one lens in then remove the other. What a great idea!

                Purchased this case for Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS ii. According to the description this should fit. However the case only fits the lens without the hood. If leave the hood on the lens, the case looks very bulky.

                      I purchased a second lens (16-35 L) for my recently completed vacation to Ireland. I had postponed purchasing a second lens because I couldn't figure a way to safely,quickly and comfortably exchange lenses. The Lens Exchange 200AW answers every one of these requirements.The best part is I am able to perform a lens exchange between my new lens and a 24-105 L with the lens hood in the installed position (not reversed) on both lenses.
                      Important- I use a Black Rapid wrist strap to let my 6D camera body dangle while I tend to the lens exchange!I can't see performing a lens change on the fly using a neck strap as the camera body would get in the way.
