I have plenty to offer why I love Pentax. I plan to enter the contest in photo.net with the price of Pentax DA Limited lens case designed by Ned Bunnell. I saw the lens case in Yvon's Pentax blog. But in case if any of you enter the contest and doesn't win the lens case, anyone interested in my $1.50 idea for 6 lens protection. I don't have a nice picture to show or get harassed. I have been using plastic cups from Ikea to shield my lens from unexpected hitting when I carry them in my bag. Not as slick as the limited lens case but for all those who enter the contest, think about going to Ikea to get these plastic cups that are of the similar size to limited lens
It can't fit the bigger lens but I find them quite good to hold the limited lens, or a 50mm, or even a small zoom so that I can place my lens in a safer position with the outer cup that avoids falling on an uneven surface or let the lens to have scuff marks in rubbing each other.
Contest aside, you all should go to Ikea to try my $1.50 for 6 limited plastic cups idea while Hin can enter the contest as the winner and loser at the same time with a single entry.
Impressions & Notes:
- Very inexpensive to get for a pair of six. There are other sizes that are more like a bowl in shape. Bigger sizes are available that may fit the larger zoom lens
- Lightweight and works well as a holder in a backpack
- Color coding in green, blue, red and yellow can easily help me to sort my lens into groups for DA limited, primes and FA limited
- Once I take out my lens with this holder, I have no fear in leaving it in the wind as the cup is more steady to lay on a flat surface as compared to the lens alone
- You have to try it to see if it fits your needs.
