Transporting 600 f4
Jul 2, 2012


I'm heading to Africa soon taking my 600 f4. It's unlikely that I'll get away with taking it on board the plane as carry on. If forced to check it I plan to check it iin at the section for handling fragile items, sporting gods etc. I'm of two minds on how to pack it. Option 1 is to use the hard case it came in which holds the lens very snugly and is quite a hard case, I could place rubber foam around it and shrinkwrapmit as well. Alternatively I can pick up Pelican hard case and pack it in there.

Any feedback or experiences transporting this lens would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


In theory, theory and practice are the same, but in practice, theory and practice are different.
