Your camera is around your neck or slung over your shoulder, and when you get something out of your trunk or lean through your car window, your camera develops a mind of its own. It swings forward and bangs whatever is in front of it. As a photographer, you know that if there is something to bump into, your camera will find it. Finally there is a solution. It's called the Lens Guard. The Lens Guard is like the bumper of a car. It provides impact protection while preventing mishaps.

I normally use a B+W screw-on clear glass protector (dSLRs don't need UV filters) and a lens cap to protect the lens front-end glass element. But even in docile situations... protecting the lens glass is one thing... a hard clunk against a telephone pole is another thing. Lens repairs are pricey! Out in the countryside... scrambling over rocks to shoot kayak races... or boulder hopping to get that fabulous waterfall shot... or when the wisdom of fleeing supersedes the notion of wrestling with the bear that's coming down the trial... I don't move without a DeLuxgear lens Guard on whatever lens is mounted on the camera. The superb lens protector has saved the day many times. For my money... a Lens Guard is unbeatable lens insurance and I don't ever leave home without one. Happy shooting!
Haven't had it that long, but seems durable and fits my lens nicely. My only complaint is that it is bulky to keep on the camera while it's in a toploader case, but if it wasn't then it wouldn't do it's job would it?
i use this product with my sun sniper so i don't bang my lens and we all know it happens.i love it.
