    Got a gently used 50-300mm Nikon lens a couple of months ago. Of course it came without a lens cap....

    95mm is what the filter size is for the lens, but I have not found a Nikon 95mm lens cap. I did find a 95mm cap for a Hassey....would that work? How about those kind of soft sided lens covers that lenscoat makes?

    Help!! I want to take this thing outside and play but won't until I have some sort of protection for it.

    There's also the padded style that slips over the lens. Could even offer added protection? I was in Boston recently, and this person walks into the hospital I was at with one attached to his camera. Kind of looked out of place :whistling: Even though he was being a snob and wouldn't even say Hi, from what I could see It did looked awesome :cool:
