LensCoat Nikon AF-S 55-300 mm f/4-5.6G ED VR telephoto lens cover offers your valuable equipment some protection from scrapes and bumps, preserving its resale value. It also helps break up the shape of your lens, making it less noticeable to wildlife and makes it more comfortable to hold. The LensCoat Nikon AF-S 55-300 mm f/4-5.6G ED VR features access to the auto focus. A notch on the last segment lines up with the white dot indicator, making it easy to quickly line up your lens with camera mount even with the cover installed. Please note that the LensCoat Nikon 55-300mm VR includes an optional piece with Velcro to cover the fixed portion of the lens barrel when fully extended.
