Thread: Lens coat

    Default Lens coat

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if you do use a lens coat for your lenses and where can we get for 70-200mm and 300mm lenses. I saw someone with the new army digital type of lens coat but didnt have a chance to ask him where he got it but for me, any good lens coat is fine as not as not funny colours will do.

    Thanks.

    the problem I had with gaffer tape is that the white residue tend to stick around and have that sticky feeling...

    Cathay is horribly overpriced.. If you aren't shooting with super telephoto lenses just camo gaffer the lenses and replace the tape every 2 - 3 months.

    now, you got to spend hours just to gaffer up your lenses or cam, done meticulously, to make it look great. And then, got to do it all over again every 3mths. Ain't it an utter waste of time and tape?
