    Just a short review, I thought I'd share for anyone interested. I was considering putting this on the deals list, but might as well do a quick review. I was looking for a separate bag for my PL100-400 that I could carry with a strap or on a belt, separate from my camera bag, so that I was more likely to take it with me on hikes etc. It did come with the same type bag as the Olympus 40-150, but is not padded have any type of way to attach to a belt/strap/sling out in the field. Good enough to keep it in a drawer though.

    Another user recently proposed the Ape case, which I thought looked ideal, but thought I read the belt loop was on the lower end of the case. It was about $18. I continued my search to see if I could find something better or cheaper and much to my surprise stumbled on this set of 4 neoprene bags on ebay. The deal was too good to pass up.

    The set of 4 was only $7.99 shipped (50% off apparently) and since it was only one state over, I got them the next day even. Can't beat that. You get 4 different sizes. They are tastefully black with soft red interior and lips. They have a belt loop that feels very secure, a locking cinch, as well as a plastic clip to attach to a bag/backpack/other. They seem well made and are well worth what I paid.

    The smallest size is ideal for a prime M43 lens or compact zoom
    The 2nd smallest easily fits something like 75mm F1.8 or 12-40mm zooms
    The 3rd easily fits the 12-100 w/lens hood
    The largest, which was my primary interest fits the PL100-400 or 40-150 with room to spare, however the one drawback is you'll have to remove the tripod collar. For the price that's a fair compromise, but I can't help wondering why they are not wider for APSC/Full Frame lenses? Luckily the PL100-400 collar is very easy to remove and replace.

    I haven't yet used them out in the wild, but am glad I purchased them. They also would be more than suitable for travel protection or packing multiple lenses in a bag/suitcase.

    I have no affiliation or vested interest in whoever makes/sells them. Just thought I'd share a good deal. I did not post a link, but can if it's allowed (not sure if encouraged or not?)

    I have a set and use them when I travel, or when the lenses go into a rucksack for protection.
