What's the overall length of the 50-135?

Just wondering if it will fit into my bag...

So what's the length of the lens with no hood attached?

I don't have the lens anymore, but it is more then 5.5 inches. My guess would be closer to 8? Not quite as tall as the 200/2.8DA* but closing in on that size range. I just looked at the spec for the 200 and it is showing 134mm length, so I don't know what to say, hmm.

i think you must be looking at pictures of it with the hood attached. the hood is pretty big relative to the lens itself. compared to the 70-200s the 50-135 is pretty small

Question, can the 50-135 hood be stored / mounted in reverse when not in use?

Yes, you can mount it in reverse for storage.

The lens is pretty large- it doesn't fit in my Lowepro SlingShot AW 200 mounted on the K10D, but I love it none-the-less, this thing is TACK sharp, and fast!

I just whipped mine out and measured it (sorry, couldn't pass that up). With the hood in storage position and both lens caps attached it measures 6.25" long by 3.75" wide. That 5.4" measurement must be how far it extends past the body when mounted.

Agreed - from lens cap to rear cap I measure 15.7cm.

I see you list a 12-24 in your profile (assuming you still have it) - since I have both of the lenses, I took some side by side pics so you can see visually see the difference. *Note that I have a B+W filter on both lenses which increases length on both lenses by a few millimeters.

You are not being creative enough. I get it into my 100AW on the camera. I manage to stuff into a 100AW (I was dumb - should have bought the 200, but ...) k10d with grip, 50-135, 16-50, 12-24, 100/4 M macro and 1.7X AF rear converter. The polarizer goes in the front pocket, along with a small blower brush and a card reader. I took out all but the largest L shaped divider.
