Summary: I bought one of this in May 2011 and planned to buy another one today and was shocked with the price change! I just bought this for only $11 in 2011 and now it is $45???? What the heck! Review on the product, it is great for my long lens and wants a new one... good quality but the heck with the pricing!!! 4 stars is for the product and I want to give -0 on the pricing....
Summary: I bought this one for a friend, as I already have a Tamrac equivalent. I could compare them side by side. They are essentially equivalent: same size, same thickness, same way to attach to a belt and I like them both.
Summary: This case fits my Canon lens perfectly, but I still feel it's not enough protection for L lenses because of their weight. The wall of this case is less than ½" in thickness. I would think dropping this with a 3 lb. lens inside will definitely break the lens. It is better use for travel to protect lenses from bumping into things.
Summary: I love all Lowepro products! The Case 2 fits my Tamron 70-300 with plenty of room to spare. Love that it works with my other Lowepro 100 Sling bag and never have to worry about it coming off. Has a bottom velcro that locks it in and has plenty of cushion.
Summary: What a good buy and it handles/protects my lens very nicley. Very well constructed and although I haven't dropped the lens, I feel that this case is so well padded the lens would be highly protected.
Summary: This works great, fits a Canon EF 70 - 200 F4 IS with tripod mount attached and the lens hood reversed. The fit is snug with the tripod mount, but it fits fine. The protection only seems to be foam, so you still wouldnt want to drop the lens case with anything breakable inside.
Summary: This case is perfect for carrying my telephoto lens. It has a sturdy lining which is padded enough to protect the lens from any bumps it might encounter. It is perfect to use if you don't want to carry around your whole camera case while on a photo outing.
