Source for Pentax Lens Softcase for F*300

Do anyone know where I might find a Pentax soft case to fit the F*300, or an equivalent quality 3rd party brand case that will fit?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Sorry if this should be in the accessories forum.

More than what you will need but the biggest of the 3 should fit the F*300,

FWIW the stock case requires you to remove the tripod foot each time you store it. A larger case would be more convenient, IMO.
good luck!

The case that came with the SMC FA* 300mm f/4.5 lens is the S90-160 which you can see here - Pentax S90-160 Lens Case (Soft) 33929 B&H Photo Video

Actually NO. The F* 300mm f4.5 came with a special soft case which was rectangular in shape and closed with a zipper. The case had a special fitting for the long tripod foot.

My 1997 Pentax price guide lists this case as the SS10-22. You can see a side view of the case here.

Thanks, that case looks great. Now to just fine one. In the meantime may opt for a neoprene.

I'm sure you must know, although I received ONLY LAST WEEK a unused, boxed lens with the unopened lens case S90-160. My comment also specified the FA* version of the lens (see difference here - http://www.bdimitrov.de/kmp/lenses/primes/extreme-tele/F300f4.5.html). You probably cannot buy an original 1991 case anymore.

The Pentax S110 - 200 case works with the F* 300 4.5 with the tripod foot on. You can find them on eBay sometimes.
