I’m a junkie for m4/3 primes, and like anything valuable protecting them from damage is a consideration one can’t avoid. While mirrorless has moved us toward smaller and lighter gear, protection moves in the opposite direction. Camera bags add bulk, as do other products. Do you add this bulk, or do you risk your lenses by keeping things smaller and lighter? I have been doing the latter. And one night on the town concluded with me arriving home only to find my Olympus 12 f2 had a tiny ding on the body due to contact with something else. Knowing how much I love this lens (and how much it cost!) my heart was broken. I thought, why doesn’t someone make a cover to protect these things? Can they be protected without adding bulk? Can the protection be so compact that it is only slightly larger than the lens itself? Can it still permit full manual focus? Can it be made such that it doesn’t interfere with filters or other add ons? Can it be made in a manner that nothing contacts the lens itself, except a small band of plush material?! I searched for such a product and found nothing, so I decided to solve the problem myself. What follows is what I came up with. Please tell me what you think!
