Lexington, KY - OmegaBrandess Distribution announces 4 new Lens Guards to fit lenses and hoods from 3 7/8 inches (10 cm) in diameter all the way to 8 1/8 inches (20.5 cm).
The new XL, 2X-L, Jumbo, and Giant Lens Guards protect any of your larger lenses and many of your basic lenses with hoods. These include:
"These lenses cost hundreds, and even thousands of dollars, and yet there have been no solutions to protect them while on your camera....until now," states Tom Nickell, the CEO of DeluxGear.

The four new Lens Guards offer the same quality and protection as DeluxGear's current Lens Guard line. Each is a padded cover that fits snuggly over the end of the lens to protect lenses and filters and help avoid costly trips to the repair shop. The cushiony, shock-resistant inner core is made of 0.25" (6mm) thick closed-cell neoprene and is encased in a tough 0.08" (2mm) Santoprene outer cover. This powerful combination absorbs impact and prevents scrapes, scratches, and dents to lenses.
"Anyone who has one of these larger lenses, including outdoor and sports photographers, will find Lens Guards to be an inexpensive form of insurance."
