Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: I bought this case to hold several manual focus lenses that I use with my Sony A7r.I can stack 4 lenses easily, 2 in each pocket, keeping them in easy reach. Lenses I typically keep in this kit are a 50 f1.2 Zuiko, 105 f2.5 Nikkor, 35 f2 or 1.7 or 1.4, 28 f2 and 24mm f2.8, or an 85 f2 in place of one of the others.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: It's a really clever idea, and I suppose with a smaller lens, particularly one without a foot attached it probably would work well. Unfortunately, with my lenses (Olympus 50-200 and 7-14) it's just a tad bit too narrow. The main problem is with the hoods, they get hung up. It needs to be about 1/2" bigger in each direction.
Excerpt: I had purchased an S&F Utility Belt some time ago, but had not yet used it. When I saw this lens exchange case I remembered the belt and knew that this was just what I needed to go along with my 70-200 f/2.8. This case makes quick lens changes possible; it sure beats running back to the equipment bag to change lenses when you're working alone!
Excerpt: I've had a couple of back surgeries and needed to lighten the load on those days when I was not up to carrying a lot of equipment. Weight is now dispersed down to my waist and legs instead of my back and it makes me decide what will be my on camera lens and my carry lens. The actual changing of the lenses works great. The only drawback is trying to snap the securing button at the back after closing. Would recommend this to a friend?
Excerpt: I should have brought this years ago. I shoot some event photography and prefer to use 17-40 and 70-200 on my 5dii lenses instead of a 24-70. I use backpacks to carry my full kit but these are no good in crowds as you keep backing in to people when framing a shot. I have tried various sling and shoulder bags but they are always too bulky for moving through crowds. This is perfect allowing me to change lenses easily and often, but still being very small.
Pros: Change Lenses, Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Easy to use, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: I shoot 6 - 7 times a week, 3 - 7 times a day, as a Real Estate and Wedding Photographer. Switching lenses is really not my favorite part of routine. I have thinkTANK Lens Changer pouches for this "lens changing" routine. And it is effective if you have one empty pouch to hold the lens that you just removed from the camera (especially if you do not have any desk to temporarily lay your lens).When I saw this "200AW", I liked the idea that you can actually temporarily hold...
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Great Design, Lightweight
Excerpt: Used with my 100-400mm "L" Telephoto Zoom when out taking shots of seagulls, pelicans, various other wildlife! It is gray to be able to change out a lens without having to stop & set gear down! A great lens carrier with the added availability to change out lenses!
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
