Must have item! Lens armor requires some patience, but works well on my 18-200 VR lens
on September 8, 2008
I honestly cannot say enough good things about the Camera Armor. It not only is well designed and protective, it gives full access to all the controls with almost no loss of feel or function.
The sole exception is the dial near the shutter release, which is a bit more difficult to access, but that is a very minor quibble, and well worth the protection for your delicate camera!
The Lens Armor (which is included in the Camera Armor package, and available separately as well) requires a lot of patience, but once it is on the lens properly, it stays put nicely on my 18-200mm VR Nikkor lens (72mm lens opening). I believe the problem "SCOTTGUNN" writes about is because he probably had the much smaller 18-55mm VR lens (with a 52mm lens opening) that comes in the D60 kit. The Lens Armor documentation says it will fit on any lens with a 48-77mm lens opening, but I found that while it took me a while to get it on the larger lens, it was very easy to pop off the smaller one.
Once the Lens Armor was seated properly, it stayed on, and offered protection (and sunshade) just as I'd hoped!
Camera Armor just might be the most valuable item you can find for your DSLR under $50.
