    Although many lens manufacturers include a case with their lenses, Canon makes you pay a preium price for a soft lens pouch that unfortunately doesn’t offer much padding or protection against mild impact. Still, the case is well made and will protect the lens from dust and will help prevent scratches. The drawstring closure secures the pouch very well, but the leather-like bottom is stiff and can make it more difficult to fit this lens pouch in your camera bag. I have two canon lenses, each of which is stored in these soft lens pouches (one is a different model but has the same design), and I find that I must tip and twist the leather bottoms of the pouches in order to fit them into the padded compartments in my Canon camera bag. I would prefer a more form fitting case for my Canon lenses, and I honestly think that Canon should provide them with their lenses, at no extra cost. After all, Canon is surely making a thick profit on their lenses, given the prices that they demand. Still, the Canon LP1116 Soft Lens Pouch is made well, for what it is, and it is certainly a better than nothing form of protection for your expensive Canon lenses. I give it 4 stars for the materials and build quality, but would probably rate it lower if based soley on design and protective properties.

    I already have 2 of the smaller versions for other lenses but wanted to be sure my EFS 17-85-mm would be snug as a bug in its own pouch instead of a cheap felt sling thing. Well, Canon came through again with another of its soft felt line the LP1116. This pouch is thick and has the same firm bottom made of naugahide that protects the inside lens. The cord is strong and silky and doesn’t open accidently the way a silky cord would. Obviously we can’t throw the pouch around and we have to be careful but it really does the trick and feels good in your hand. The moment I buy another lens, I shall have to buy its matching pouch.
