Lowepro's breakthrough, purpose-built design allows a one-handed lens exchange. This inventive case is ideal for busy photographers who need to switch out lenses as they work. The patent-pending lens exchange feature temporarily holds and separates the two lenses as the photographer detaches the working lens and grabs the second. After the lenses are exchanged, the bag collapses back to a single-lens carrier.
A Lowepro first, it includes: two mesh pockets for lens caps, body caps or filters, a patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover, a SlipLock attachment tab and an easy-grip main handle that opens the compartment wide for easy and fast access, secure metal snap closure, removable and adjustable shoulder strap, 2 D rings and durable, moisture-resistant outer fabric. The S&F Lens Exchange 200 AW features a travel-friendly design that collapses flat for easy packing into a larger bag.

Good bag for swapping lenses
I picked this case up with a few other S&F products. The design was very interesting on paper, and I was excited to try it out. I can report that for street work, weddings, and just about anywhere you need extreme versatility (even in bad weather), this thing works wonders! It's a simple concept that's been executed quite well.

I picked this case up with a few other S&F products. The design was very interesting on paper, and I was excited to try it out. I can report that for street work, weddings, and just about anywhere you need extreme versatility (even in bad weather), this thing works wonders! It's a simple concept that's been executed quite well. The bag really does let me switch out a 70-200 2.8 with a prime, or other zoom without the need to set a lens down, or have more cases that barely get used. It really does let you put one lens in with a second lens already in the case, then pull out that second lens. Genius. BUT - I will say that it's a pretty extreme case. What I mean is, that you will find swapping between a 70-200 2.8 and a small prime can be a little tricky since the 70-200 fits pretty snug with the hood on, albeit not impossible, but then getting that prime way down in the bag can be cumbersome at times. Not a big deal really though, as a lot of people will be switching between two zooms often. They should make a smaller version of this case for anyone using primes. Again, for weddings and street work - this is a life saver in that I don't have to have more bags, or risk setting a lens down on the ground, a table, etc.

The case is exactly what I expected for my new Tamron 70-200 mm lens for Nixon
Good and sturdy lens case
This case fits my Tamron 70-200 F 2.8 perfectly. It also fits great on my Lowepro Toploader, and I tested it this past weekend when I had to rapidly change lenses to get a nature closeup. It will really be put to the test in the Rain Forests of Costa Rica in three weeks.
This is the second 200AW case I bought. Solid, durable and great for changing lens especially for jobs when I'm on the move and swapping lenses.
I love the exchange idea, this case is well designed and it works just as it's supposed to.
Purchased this item so when I went hiking or walking and wanted to travel light.Camera and a couple of lenses.I wouldn't need a sholder bag or several cases on a wastebelt.It has worked for why I purchased it.I like not having to set a lens down esp.in the woods to change lenses.I have carried a mix of either a Tamron 70-300VC and a Canon 100 macro or a 17-40 wide angle without the hood.
Exchange case does what it is made for (claims). It works well with a f2.8 zoom lens, with hood. Lens is not in danger of falling out even if I didn't get it all the way in.
Good product a little bulky but does the job it was designed for.
I have had this product for about 8 months and it gets almost daily use, mostly outdoors. It has even been left out on the deck a few times and thank goodness survived and protected the contents. I mostly shoot macro in the gardens or telephoto of birds, so this case usually holds either a Nikon 105 macro or a Nikon 300 zoom. Both are fairly hefty lenses and this case handles them well. I use the outside pockets for extra batteries and lens cap. I keep a few filters strapped to it in a "FISHBOMB CASE" also from Adorama. I also stash some little accessories along the inside side (remote, eye piece, etc), but... be aware that this area is open when the case is fully open. (see suggestions below). And lastly I stash a folded camera rain guard along the other inside side. BOTTOM LINE: If you want to travel light but need two lenses, think this case over... I just grab this case, my camera (in a lightweight cover "sleeve"), and I am out the door with everything I really need. If this case ever gives out I will be running to find a replacement ASAP. Would like to see: 1. some small inside pockets along side, or zipped outside - something secure - hate replacing that remote again! 2. perhaps some different sizes - current size is great for me right now - though I think I am pushing the weight limit, but I can see as one reviewer mentioned where is you are using smaller lenses it would be a bit too tall.
This case is just what you need for changing lenses out in the field... It clips on my belt with a VERY strong and secure velcro loop and makes it safe and easy to change a lens without having to fumble around and possibly drop one of the lenses or your camera body... One of the smartest purchases I've made...!
