    Well not having the budget for those expensive neoprine camo covers and not being able to find a local shop selling scrim netting I was at a loss to hide my big (ok moderate) white lens.
    Then it hit me - wellie sock! A few minutes later with a sock and a pair of scissors (tiny set off a pocket knife) and there you have it. One 70-200mm f2.8 IS L + 1.4TC all covered in green - with a little slit to get to the zoom wheel. The focus is even usable since the sock material has some give in it, though not too much - but I use AF most of the time so it should not prove a problem.
