This is my first prototype for a home made lens coat. I bought a small roll of that rubber matting for my dashboard from a cheapo variety shop in Mosman for $2.50 and had most of it left over. So i thought i'd give it a go on the 500mm
Obviously never going to be as good as the real thing but for less than the price of my daily coffee i reckon it isn't too bad. At this stage just stuck on with sticky tape. I might go back to the shop to see what other colours they have and then use some sturdy double-sided tape on it. the biggest part of this lens is the hood so even just disguising that would make a big difference i think.
