For anyone reviewing this thread to help make a purchase decision:

The LowPro case mentioned is a very tight fit for the lens with a long Arca-Swiss type adapter plate mounted on the tripod foot. It's also tight enough around the lens hood that it will pull the zoom out when the lens is removed from the case if the lens hasn't been locked at 200mm. (It may also pull the hood off).

I wish it was just a tiny bit larger...

Unfortunately, unless there's a custom-made case available (Nikon, are you listening?), what's out there is what's out there.

On the bright side, I was able to squeeze in an NC filter on the lens in addition to the CPL and the TC-14e III in that semi-hard case.
