I am going to buy myself a rain cover and I have more or less settled on the think tank hydrophobia 70-200 (I don't think they make a shorter one). I was wondering if anybody has experience of using one with a 24-70 and how well it works or do you end up with too much cover all getting scrunched up. I looked at Gregs camera and equipment protection video but he only mentions the protection he has for his 70-200 and 300-600. Is there an alternative option for the 24-70?

Here is that video for others that may come across this post...


To answer your question as long as you are using your hood it should be fine. Both hands are inside of the rain cover, which when focusing and zooming it prevents the additional material from bunching up. If you want I can shoot a few photos tomorrow with my hydro and 24-70 so you can see what I'm talking about.

Oh, by the way be sure to purchase from this link :0)

Thanks for that I will go with the 70-200 then. Unfortunately I can't use your link as the shipping and import tax would make it considerably more expensive compared to buying locally.

Thanks again,
Luke
