    I know. It was amazing to me when I opened the box. I used the soft case that came with my 18-135.
     
  3. Randy, LowePro 1W lens case w/ HN-31 in shooting position...perfect fit. :biggrin:

    thx !
     
  5. If it makes you feel any better, the ($2K+) 28/1.4 came in the most ordinary Nikon lens box imaginable and didn't even include a hood! Plus it had the old style lens cap as well.

  7. Randy, someplace I have a nylon/foam insulated case for a water bottle. It has a zipped lid and (I think) a loop for a belt. They come in various sizes and I use to use them when I couldn't afford a decent padded backpack or pelican case. I got mine from REI, but I'm sure most sporting goods stores carry them. My son has some for use with his 55-200 and 24-85. He takes them mountaineering and mountain biking, so they do work!

    i just ordered a LowPro 1W from b&w...it gave me a good reason to empty my wishlist
    I got a tamrac today in town but it's too skinny for the hood
     
  9. I really don't use cases. If so then I would have to much to carry around. I store everything in foam padded Pelican Cases. When I go out to shoot or on vacation, I use a small or medium Tamarc bag and back pack. For me... if a lens is not mounted on a body, then It will be found in the Pelican.:smile:
