Would the LensCoat for a Sigma 500 f/4.5 work? I've not tried them yet but I noticed that they had one for that lens.

A quick search on the net found this and there are other options around that look equally cool/pretentious

Cool find Arjay! They would definitely have some forum discussion potential.

I would suggest your considering a spotting scope case.

Very field worthy - heavly padded, robust, lots of ways to carry it, can leave on the tele and still use on tripod. Most are very well made.

Can be a bit costly though.
