The DeluxGear Lens Bumper (Medium) is basically a Lens Guard without the enclosed dome end. It has neoprene inside and tough Santoprene exterior. The Lens Bumper allows you to shoot without taking it off of the lens. That also means that you can shoot with your lens hood in use. Or, if you're not using a hood, you can keep the Bumper on the lens at all times.

I purchased this bumper thinking that I could just leave it on the camera during use. This is not the case. It covers up the zoom ring. I just use it as an additional lens cap and it does prevent those sideways bumps on the lens
I like the heaviness(not in weight but construction) and protectiveness of this product. I bought the medium lens bumper for a 24-70mm Nikon lens. On the packaging it showed more definitive sizing that is not located on the website. It was hard to get it on the lens and I may exchange it for the large so that I can cover part of the hood. It definitely will protect your lens. I did not give it 5 stars because it was hard to maneuver and I may actually need the larger size
Used on a Nikon 55-300mm VR over the lens. Shooting with one camera and another slung over my shoulder, every time I knelt down, the lens would crash into the cement. Now hopefully I have more protection. Works if you adjust it just right, zooming is slightly stiff, since the lens is moving alongside the foam. Well built. Takes a little getting use to, loose, adjustment, falling off when placed in a camera bag with liners, etc
