Disappointed with soft case LSC-0918 for 70-300

I bought a soft case for my 70-300mm, the LSC-0918 model, to keep the dust out when it's not inside a photo bag.

Got the pouch this morning and I'm disappointed with it. When you insert the 70-300 inside the pouch, the latter is wide enough but you cannot completely close the top with the strings. How daft is that, particularly when it's the pouch size recommended by Olympus themselves!

I found the same it just closes over the back cap does not close completely I got a LSC1022 instead it is a good closed fit for both my 70-300 and the 7-14and closes over the full lens.

I was thinking about that one earlier on, but decided to go for the LSC-0918 to keep things simple. As it turns out, I should have done as you did.

Hopefully, somebody wanting to buy a case for his/her 70-300 will find this thread before purchasing one.

The bad?news is I had bought a 0918 before I found as you did it is not the best one for the job I then got the 1022. But if it helps someone else........

Olympus have an odd system of designating accessories. I would have assumed the case 0918 referred to the 9-18mm lens!

Yes, I tried to figure that one out but it doesn't seem to be referring to any size I can think of.

Same with their lens hoods, I find it very confusing!

John, thanks, but the eBay listing is no longer available.

How can people sell something like that and make a profit, I'll never know.
