Summary: With a generic web belt, a topload case and a couple of these you have the beginnings of your ideal belt rig. I purchased two to go with my topload zoom case 1. I have three lenses in my regular kit currently and while the shortest would fit in the lens case 1S I didnt want to restrict my rig to only being packed one way. The construction of the case is solid and its easy to open and close with gloved hands.
Summary: I love Lowepro products. I own several items they make and I am happy with all of my Lowepro purchases. I got this for my 18-105 VR lens I like the double zipper on the top of the case. I like the cap holder inside the lid. I like the quality of the stiching and the materials used. This is a no brainer purchase if you are looking for an individul lens case.
Summary: I was shopping for a new 50mm lens, so I wanted a lens case to protect it. What I was looking for was fairly straightforward:- Good construction- Not too big, not too small (had to be able to fit my 18-200mm Tamron in the case as well when I'd using the 50mm)- Good value for moneyI already have a LowePro camera bag, and I've had it for over a year now with no sign of wear and tear at the seams, so I knew that they made quality products.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Summary: I bought this for the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG APO Macro, which was said to fit in this case. It does, but just barely - have to really squeeze it in there. But in itself, the product is very well made and is my third Lorepro lens case. I'd buy another, just not on faulty size information this time. I use a couple on a regular web belt while I shoot, and leave the camera bag in the car.
Summary: When I ordered this case I did not know what to expect. I needed to carry an extra lens for my Canon T1i and I did not want to carry around a big camera bag. The first thing that I noticed was how well padded the lens case is, how well it fit my extra lens and how protected the lens was when inside.
Summary: Although very well constructed with many tiny little features, this case hugs the lens too close. There is very little padding between the lens and the outer surface of the case. I have a 72mm filter-thread lens from Sigma that is the right length for this case but it has to be squeezed in if the lens hood is retained. It's so tight that a bump from the outside seems like it will snap the lens hood.
