a neopreme cover for the canon 70-200 2.8L IS is 90 dollars (generally) it comes in camo as well as white and black... the question is, is it worth it? does anyone own one or know someone who does?

Go for the CAMO!!! :-) I'm considering one of these for a new lens on the way myself. Might put it on the Christmas list. :-P

You never know when your going to find yourself in the middle of a war and wishing to have the camo! Afterall with a big white canon lens you would be a sitting duck!

Sitting duck would be ok if you're out for some snow geese shots. :-)

i just think it might be a good investment if im going to be out in the cold with it cause the exterior is metal and it will get verry cold on the hands

This is just me thinking outloud, but if its cold outside wouldnt you be wearing gloves?

BTW I would love to cover all of my lens in black.

was that sarchastic at the end?
and gloves and small buttons dont mix...especially gloves that are in the snow alot from strapping in bindings...my golves have a leash on them and i take them off to take pictures but if im standing for X hours taking pics my fingers will fall off

Bit of a side track...semi-related I guess; I bought some fingerless gloves at the local sporting goods store last year. There is a mitt that flaps back and fastens with velcro, thumbs also. Works great in cold weather. Really easy to use. There are several models available with various materials (microfleece, wool, etc...).

If you have that kind of money to cover a lens by all means have at it... I can assure you that its not needed though. I shoot snowboarding all winter and a cold lens has never been and issue. I typically wear pipe gloves and the glove on my left hand always stays on... the glove on the right hand comes off while I shoot. I dont usually shoot long enough in one spot to get that cold.

These gloves and buttons certainly mix.

Link does not work, and a search for glove liner on that site also does not work.

Hmm goes right into it for me, must cache.

Go to //www.underarmour.com

click shop, then either mens or womans, then snow sports, then accessories, then gloves-liners.
