Does anyone use Lens Skins? Wondering how easy they are to apply/how well they fit, can they be easily removed, do they hinder zoom any? Thought it might be kinda fun to dress up an inexpensive lens ...

You can buy vinyl wrap off ebay for around $5.00 for a 1' square "sample" sheet.

According to B&H:
Full Access to Lens Windows, Functions
Custom Cut for the Lens
Easy On and Off / Residue-Free
Won't Hurt Original Finish or Parts
Doesn't Interfere With Lens Moving Part

Why?

That was my first thought... They have some pretty interesting prints and the price is ridiculous.

Yeah I looked at the prices after posting my original question, and they are pretty ridiculous. Plus the reviews for them on BH are pretty bad.
