I thought this fabulous lens (canon 200-400) needed a fabulous lens coat. . . .
Lenscoat and the others that sell these things don't have much besides bland colors and camo and are fairly expensive. I saved about $50 doing it myself and have something unique now. I know, I know what's $50 bucks after spending an arm and a leg on the lens but every bit counts . . . .
So, I bought some neoprene (3mm), seam seal and seam tape. I made this in about an hour. I don't do a whole lot of wildlife, mainly sports so no need for camo - just want some extra protection. . . .
I might re-do the top piece - working around the bump out for the tele-converter was tricky. . . . I'm also thinking about using the leftover pieces to make some cool clothes for the kids . . .
