Great quality, exceptional bang for the buck Dec 09, 2010
This is a Domke branded case, made by Tiffen. Domke is an old and well respected brand in camera cases, and it was purchased by Tiffen some years ago to flesh out Tiffen's product line.
I have no idea whether this particular model predates the Tiffen acquisition, but as with other Domke/Tiffen collaborations I find it to be a very nice product. This thing is incredibly sturdy and well padded, with a semi-rigid structure that should shrug off most small impacts. It's got a hook-and-loop belt loop which is probably the weakest link structurally - it's still fairly secure, but I can see how it could be ripped off of a belt if enough pressure were applied to it. It also includes a handy shoulder strap should you wish to carry it that way, although it's so small the belt loop seems like it's more practical.
The shape of the case is somewhat of an oddity. Unlike most lens cases, it opens to the *front* and not simply on the *top*. This means it's not cylindrical, and instead the opening flap is sloped upwards on the front of the case. The flap is secured with twin zippers on its sides (which are linked together by fabric), as well as with a generous patch of hook-and-loop on the very top of the case. This design enables easier access to the lens, however it also means that the case isn't secure at all when it's not closed up, so do be careful on entry and exit.
One thing that should be reiterated - this thing is called "compact" for a reason, it's a very small case. It can hold my Olympus 50mm f/2 Four Thirds system macro lens along with my Micro 4/3 adapter, but only just. It should be fine for small primes, but even kit lens type DSLR zooms will probably have trouble squeezing into it.
A perfect hard lens case for a small prime lens Nov 29, 2010
I just received this compact lens case and was totally surprised by it! Originally I thought it would just be a compact carrying lens case for a small lens, but it is not that simple! It is a tough lens case with stiff exterior and well and sufficient paded interior. In the buttom, it also provides additional protection for lens. It comes with a strap to letting you to easily carry it all around, and it can also be mounted on your belt. The two zippers are both YKK brand, and they are connected with a handle which enables you to access the lens easily. I put my Nikon 35mm F1.8G lens inside, and it fits perfectly. The quality of this lens case is way above my expectation. I strongly recommend it!!!
Good, almost great Dec 28, 2012
Good protect from bumps and the double zipper pull-down allows quick access to gear. Price like all Domke is reasonable especially considering it’s made in the USA. The only gripe I have is the back loop does not inspire total confidence.
Fits my Nikon 35mm like a glove. Dec 14, 2010
The quality of these Domke cases are brilliant. They are sturdy and secure without being bulky. This case is ideal for my Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
It fits nice and snug, with the lens hood reversed.
Well done DOMKE!

very small case, great quality for $7 Dec 04, 2010
This is a very small case. Appropriate for a small prime lens or maybe a kit zoom without a hood. Quality is excellent, especially for the $7 price.
