It's 3 inches x 5.6 inches. which is 7.6cm x 14.2cm

Was thinking of this LowePro Lens Case (external link) for $12 shipped but the maximum length is 13cm long, just 1.2cm short. Do you guys think I can stuff the lens in there?

Any recommendations? Don't want to spend more than $15.

I've got a couple of those cases in different sizes and they're pretty nice - the length might be ok. It's a bit hard to say from looking at the numbers.

I just checked a 1W case (length = 12.5 cm) with a 100/2.8L macro (length = 12.3 cm). That lens actually sticks up out of the case more than a cm. The case closes fine, but it's tight. I'm wondering if the spec from LowePro might be a bit optimistic.

Also - the way it's listed on Amazon, it's not clear that the 13cm is internal, or external. On one of these cases that's a pretty big difference (1W | external = 16cm, internal = 12.5 cm)

FWIW - I didn't measure anything - got the lengths off that web thingie.

I really like my LowePro "lens Exchange". It's $38 but it's really neat how it works.
