The ACPROLC18 is a good case for the Canon 300mm f/2.8 L IS USM with hood I was looking for a case to carry around the Canon 300mm f/2.8 L IS USM with hood when shooting sports so as to avoid having to bring in a large backpack or rolling case into stadiums or high security areas. It was much simpler to sling the cameras around my neck, carry my monopod in one hand, and this Ape Case ACPROLC18 with the lens in it over my shoulder. The case is protective enough for bumping around crowds, in hand-carry luggage, the back of vehicle, or on public transportation. It is not good for check-in luggage, however. The lens case is wide enough to accommodate the 300mm hood and long enough to fit the lens plus the EF 1.4x teleconverter attached. It comes with a shoulder strap to carry over the shoulder and I appreciate the yellow interior which is great for visibility.There are two things about this case which seem like slightly counter-intuitive design decisions:1. The plastic latch on the front is opened by pushing on the top half of the front of the latch. That pops open the bottom and frees the tongue portion of the latch. It's hard to explain, and actually sometimes I still get it wrong. But it is good from detering people from opening your lens case. For example, when I use this case, no one else can get it open to get at the lens. So, I pretty much do not have to "share" my long lens.2. The zipper for the case is under the flap. The manufacturer's picture shows the two zippers joined by tether to each other to slide the zippers open from ON TOP of the flap. In practice, that is not always convenient. Often, for more security, I will have the zippers and tether under the flap, making the case a little harder to open. I'm quite used to it by now so it doesn't bother me, but I thought I should mention it.Where this case excels is value for the money. There are other cases out there that have more padding and therefore more bulky, and have latches and zippers that make a little more sense, but they are at lest 2x or 3x the cost of this lens case. I don't store the 300mm in this case, and half the time I transport the big lens in a rolling case anyway, so this case is for special situations where rolling up with so much gear would be a hassle or intimidating. This case does what it promises to do for a very good value. 4which makes it pretty much useless for use with a belt system or ... I was looking for a tall and narrow case, and this fit the bill perfectly. However, the belt loop on the back is permanently affixed on the bottom, which makes it pretty much useless for use with a belt system or the attachment loops that are found on many packs (it also makes it a right pain for use with conventional belts too, since it means you have to remove the belt to take the lens pouch off.) I had assumed it had velcro like the Lowepro lens cases, but this wasn't the case. Since the dimensions are unusual and hard to find elsewhere I'll probably keep this, and cut the bottom of the loop and sew velcro onto it, but I'm not particularly happy about it.Construction wise the padding is a bit thin but adequate. It seems solidly put together enough, although the belt loop is sewed on crooked. I do rather like the bright yellow interior color though. 2Great quality, but price suddenly jumped!! Great case, plenty of room and length for a Nikkor 200-500mm, even with the lens hood attached.Only problem now, when I bought mine only 2 weeks ago, it was only $22.95. Now they're selling for $39.95. Why the sudden jump??Still worth the higher price, it's a really well made caHere's 3 photos for fitting and size reference, this is a D7200 with battery pack and 200-500mm Nikkor attached, hood reversed. This lens adds 11" for a total measurement of 13.75" from lens cap to camera back. Lens hood diameter is 6". This combo fits perfectly, secure but not tight, quickly comes out. Case will also store lens alone with lens hood mounted, (unreversed). 5It fits! It fits! - Nikon 200-500mm w/ reversed hood & lens foot Finally, after trying several lower priced, but very nicely design lens cases found on Amazon, the Ape Case fully fits the Nikon 200-500mm f5.6 super telephoto lens. The other brands were too small. They had nice handles, zippers, pouches, etc. But none can carry all the attachments with the Nikon 200-500 lens.I've always had hesitations on Ape Case camera bag designs and still have a few objections with this lens case design. But bottom line is this fits my hard to fit lens at a moderate price. There's 2 other brands that are $20 to $110 more than the Ape Case. But I can stop looking.What I like:+ Nikon 200-500mm lens with reversed lens hood and lens collar/foot slides in/out smoothly. (Being nearly square accommodates the lens foot that circular cases can't handle!)+ Plenty of padding on the bottom and around the sides.+ Wide belt loop. (But it's so wide, to use as carry handle or attach to camera bag/backpack.)+ Bright yellow interior lets you see what's inside.+ Nicely padded shoulder strap.What can be improved:- Top flap needs the buckle to secure. Pulling on the flap unzips the twin zippers to quickly access the lens. (Hook & loop should be added for extra security.)- Buckle not intuitive. You press down on the face of the buckle, which can be undone if you bang into something. (All conventional buckles squeeze from the sides.)- Need to be pull the top flap forward to gentle pull on the strap joining the twin zippers to close the case. (A conventional flip top with single zipper would be better.)- Top carry handle/strap is too narrow allowing only use with 2-3 fingers. (Should be bit longer and sewn further apart for a better grasp. Hence the belt loop makes a better carry handle.)- Belt loop hook & loop tabs are small and can undo. (Longer tabs would be more secure.)- 2 small pouches can only carry memory cards. (Better to have a pouch for lens filters or cleaning cloth as most other brands.)- Longevity of the zipper pulls, buckle, flap. (Material quality is good though.) 5... this for the Nikon 200-500mm telephoto lens and it's perfect with a little space at the top I bought this for the Nikon 200-500mm telephoto lens and it's perfect with a little space at the top. It is well made and padded to protect the lens. It's zipper closes the top to minimize dust, etc. It also has a snap that holds the cover in place. Has a strap handle and a shoulder strap that is comfortable. Recommend this case without hesitation. 4Looking for a case for that Tamron 150-600mm lens? This case is nearly perfect for my needs. There are 3 ways I use this case with my Tamron 150-600 lens:1) Lens only with hood in reversed (stored) position2) Lens only with hood in normal extended operating position3) Lens attached to Nikon D800e body but with hood in reversed positionThis versatility makes it a joy to own and use this case. The case is just wide enough fit the lens hood, lens, and the D800 body nicely, but without excess slop. Product construction and quality is top-notch as you would expect from Ape Case products. I also use the Ape Case ACPRO1800 and 1900 camera back packs and love their stuff. The only peeve I have is that I wished the case had a small pocket around 5" square to store miscellaneous things like batteries etc. As it is, there's 2 TINY pockets only large enough to store a CF memory card in each, which is essentially useless to me as I keep 3 sets of memory cards together in a heavy duty case. However, this complaint isn't severe enough to deduct a full star. Product is still a 5 star item with a single wish. 5Overbuilt and under-priced! Five stars isn't enough for this product.For whatever reason, it is difficult to find photography gear that's anywhere between "Chinese sweatshop quality" and "costs more than your camera did." These cases give you the best of both worlds: professional quality at sweatshop prices. I somehow doubt their marketing department will quote me on that.For starters, this isn't a lens sock. This is a rugged, standalone, kick-it-down-the-stairs kind of case. They're padded on all sides with closed-cell foam padding, and if you have a mirrorless camera like I do, there's a second sleeve of padding that is inside to keep your lens from rolling around. I would, without question, feel comfortable throwing my lenses in the bottom of a backpack full of loose laptops and power bricks. Airline baggage handlers probably see these in their nightmares.I love that these are zippered (and padded!) tops, not that drawstring nonsense. I love that the zipper isn't right up at the top edge, so that the lens is still protected if you drop it on that edge, and you don't end up breaking both your lens and the zipper. I love that there are both horizontal and vertical attachment loops(belt loops, or whatever they're called, AND that they're both velcro-secured, so you don't have to take your dumb belt off to get the case on and off of it. AND, I love that there are two little loops at the top, so that you can attach a neck/shoulder strap--or use an old camera strap to sling it across your body.Fit: I bought both the small (ACLC8) and the medium (ACLC10). The small will fit the 16-50mm kit lens that came with my Sony a6000, and it can fit it in there with 16mm worth of macro extension rings installed. The medium is a perfect fit for the 55-210mm kit lens. In both cases, the lenses have the front and rear lens caps on them, and both are a snug fit with the inner sleeve of padding installed in the case. The lenses don't fall out if the case is turned upside down, but they come out easily if you grab them. Perfect! The fit is equally as good on the two Olympus kit lenses that I have.Either the small or the medium case will fit 96% of the lenses out there. If you have only one lens and you're not sure which to buy, buy them both. Figure out which one fits, and then use the other one as a field pouch, to corral up all the loose cords, batteries, and other items that are bouncing around in your camera bag. Honestly, unless you have a telephoto lens, the small size will probably fit fine. 5Nicely made. Very nicely constructed, with a good zipper as well as a clip-type closure. It fits my Canon 5Diii with the Tamron 150-600mm lens attached, as can be seen in the photo 5My New Favorite Lens Case This Ape Case is well built, light, and has all the features you want in a lens case. An inner padded yellow insert can be removed or left inside to more accurately match the diameter of whatever lens you are using (I'm using mine with the Fujinon XF 55-200mm f:3.5-4.8 R LM OIS Zoom Lens, which fits perfectly when the inner sleeve is removed from the Ape Case.) There is padding in the case even when the inner sleeve is removed. A double set of Velcro belt fasteners (one horizontal, one vertical) gives you ultimate flexibility in mounting case on a belt or, perhaps, on a larger equipment bag. The zipper operates smoothly, and doesn't seem that there will be any problems with its operation over time. It's actually pretty good looking, too.The case comes in a variety of heights, so you have to check the dimensions of your lens to order the specific case that is best suited for it. Also, note that Ape Case also sells another case which looks very similar on Amazon, but does not have the removable padded insert. Depending on your preference, one or the other design may be best. I prefer the removable padded insert because I can then use the same case for a variety of different lenses. These cases are not cheap, but they aren't outrageous, either, and the quality and the design are very good for the price range, so I rate these as a five star recommendation. 5My New Favorite Lens Case This Ape Case is well built, light, and has all the features you want in a lens case.
