I was looking for a good fitting lens case for the Olympus MC-20 2X teleconverter and I couldn't find a lens case that wasn't too big. Then, I came across this case which is designed for a GoPro Hero:

If the case wasn't square shaped, you would think it was a custom case for the teleconverter. The converter fits in it very well and will not move around when you're walking/hiking with it. The case is considered a "hard case" but there is some give in the top and bottom panels. At $6.99, I consider it a great deal.

I know the MC-1.4 teleconverter is a bit shorter in height, but if I had the MC-1.4, I wouldn't hesitate to order one as a small piece of padding could be used if needed.

Guess that is my deal for the week!

I have both the MC-20 and MC-14. I glued a pair of rear lens caps together so they can be carried as a set, then drop them into a neoprene beverage can cozy. It works well and doesn't take much space.

Clever idea! I may have to think about that if I get the MC-14. Do you find that you use one converter more than the other?
I often use the MC-20 on the 40-150 Pro, especially if I'm travelling light, and use it on the 300mm if I have bright sun and really want the reach. I'll use the MC-14 on either lens if I have some overcast or want to keep the shutter speed that little bit higher.

Thanks for the replies. I'm still thinking about how often I would use the MC 14 for the purpose of slightly faster shutter speed. But, I also need to spend a lot of time practicing with the lens as I got it in the late fall, and haven't been out that much this winter compared to what I'll do not that we're entering spring.
