I'll check how it fits with my 75-300 to enable a comparison with a 12-100 if you are interested.

From what I can make out, the Oly 75-300 and 12-100 are exactly the same length. With no qr plate on the base, the press studs require the stretchy neoprene to be pulled only approx. 10mm to close the case.

The front of the case accepts the 90mm dia reversed lens hood for the 75-300, even pushed right into the furthest end of the case, so the 77.5mm dia. 12-100 should fit (or does fit, because I've tried it), but I didn't get a chance to check it with it's petal lens hood fitted in reverse.
