Struggling to close a 600mm lens case
Jan 28, 2013

I am struggling to close the polycarbonite lens case that came with a 600mm f/4 IS USM lens that I have just received.

The lens is seated properly in the bottom of the case, but on trying to close the lid, there is about an inch still to go when I get resistance. It is not the lens foot, but seems to be in the area around the filter.

Do I simply push harder? There are quite a few pads which have some give in them. But I am scared of damaging the lens. Is this normal?

Yes it is the right case for the lens, all fits perfectly except the lid does not close completely......
