Damn Neuro,

Where do you find all this stuff!

I have a pouch like that that came with my Wonderpana, well actually they give you two, one for the Wonderpana and one for the CPL. What I really want is one thicker one to take them both, because the whole thing mounts on the lens cap bayonet of the 17 TS-E it is easier to just leave it all together and put it on and off complete, but the pouches are too narrow to store them together. Any ideas?

Get one of those zip-around CD/DVD cases and tear out all the inserts from it. Gives you a nice 3-dimensional pouch.

I use them when I load people my gear. And my 8-15mm is in one because it keeps loosing the lens hood. The pouch prevents that from happening.

I also have a set of macro tubes that came with a small pouch. I tend to always keep those in their pouch because i can then stack a prime in the same compartment without hard surfaces scratching against each other.

After buying many Canon lenses, I can say that the supertelephoto luggage/suitcase/cases are nice, the padded pouches of the 70-200 and 180 are quite nice, but the pouches are all but worthless as anything other than a dust cover and even then they are open enough to let dust into the pouch.

Has anyone ever used the lens pouches or found another use for them?

Just one more thing to keep track of in case of resale.
Someday Canon will either discontinue or change them, like the crappy lens caps.
Until then look at Sigma's excellent lens cases and sigh.

I keep mind in the box and when I sell the lens, it is new looking. 

The bags are worthless.

Somehow I missed all these replies - Surapon, as always, thanks for the great and interesting posts.  If anyone would find a use for the pouches, it would be you!

BL - $20 a piece, wow, that's a nice bit of cash for something so worthless!

Everyone else - thanks for the interesting posts!

yeah look it up on eBay.  $20 with $2 shipping is on the higher side, but I never had a problem selling them at that price as long as I was willing to let eBay auto relist once or twice.

I'll usually sell 3-4 of them at a time as they accumulate with lens purchases.  It's really strange, some bidders even differentiate between made in China vs Japan pouches... as if that makes much of a difference - go figure!

They sit in their original plastic bags, tucked into the styrofoam cutouts in the original lens boxes. 


Yes, then when you go to sell the lens, having the pouch adds substantially to the price it will sell for.
