does anyone have a preferred dust cover that allows you to use the Zoom on the lens but still protect from dust?

The velcro piece (lenscoat) that attaches to the "zoom barrel" can be only 1/2 to1/3 fastened...
thus allowing for zoom action with some dust protection at the base, I have (2) 200-500's I've
shot in rain/heavy snow/dusty rodeos and have had no problems with either. HTH

FWIW, LensCoat changed up this design for zoom lenses with the one for the Sigma 60-600 S
It's a very light fabric sleeve that "gives" as you zoom in and out. Pretty lame in my opinion so
I had the Mrs. fashion me a velcro one with 2 adjustment strips and it works quite well.
