I would appreciate any info from anyone who has been using the LensCoat covers, specifically on a 300mm f2.8Lis.
How is it wearing, is the stitching holding together?

Are the plastic windows wearing OK?

How easy are the mode buttons to use under the plastic window?

Are you able to still use the front buttons on the lens to autofocus?

Do the covers slip at all on the lens?

Any advice on fitting and experiences in using the covers?

Thanks in advance......

Just got a Lenscoat for my 500 f4 IS and it's quite well-made and good fitting. The buttons under the plastic window are not to difficult to use, as the clear plastic is somewhat stretchable. I've to remove the foot of the tripod collar to fit mine.

I got mine based on user feedback from wildlife shooters at Naturescapes.

I got the lenscoat for my Sigma 300-800 and it is not very well made. One piece is the wrong size and the window for the distance scale doesn't really line up with what's underneath. I have a JRF cover on my 500/4 and it is just fine. I think it is an issue of which model you bought more than which brand.
