What lens pouch do you guys use?

I took ownership of an FA 28-70 F2.8 yesterday, and it was love at first click. But being that “wonderful” silver coating, I want to keep it from getting too bad and scratched up. I was looking at the Pentax lens pouches and found the S120-150 was suitable for the D FA 28-70, and was wondering if this would be of sufficient size for the FA. If not, what alternative(s) would you suggest.

I have always found the Ape Case to be a pretty good no frills case. Most feature a nice removable inner liner and as a bonus the line is a trendy Hi Vis yellow sure to impress your fellow photpgraphers. Most adapt to a shoulder strap or a belt. They are available at B&H at affordable prices.

According to this page that case is indeed the correct one.... FA* 28-70/2.8 AL | The K-Mount Page

Dimensions suggest it should work.

I have that pouch I use with the FA* 28-70. It works fine. No handle and no belt strap though. I like the large tamrac pouches in the field. Nice belt loops.

I use OP/TECH USA neoprene fold over pouches, the lens and pouch then inside a bag or case. These have excellent protection for the lens finish.

I use similar pouches made by Ruggard:

I use a fabric pen to make the cases so I can tell what lens are in what pouch
