Neoprene lens cover for Pentax 55-300?

Anyone know of where I might find a neoprene lens cover for my Pentax 55-300? I've searched all over, and cannot find one specific for this lens.

Thanks in advance,
Carol

Or the usual Lenscoat.

I think both of the UK firms will make one up for you. Lenscoat wants an exorbitant price for custom work. Outdoorphotographygear did up a DA300 one due to demand. Might be worth getting in touch with them. Both of the UK ones are excellent quality, better than lenscoat.

Thanks for those links! I'd really like to have one for this lens; but I've not found it, so no doubt would have to be a special order.

OpTech makes a variety of neoprene lens-protectors. I mix and match them to fit pretty much everything.

I haven't seen any "skin"s for lens, rather pouches.

I went to the KEH buyer recently, and he had many KEH drink cozies. I wish I had grabbed two, as this is the ideal item for you once the bottom has been scissored away - even has a camera-centric logo on the side! I slid it partly over my 55-300's nose, it would have been tight so not ideal for the focus ring but great for the rest of the lens.

I've got part of a neoprene black glove I could use to cover that part, but really want to get the full cover, if I could find one.
