Which Soft-Case to use?

Hi
Is there a chart that shows which soft case to use for each of the 645 lenses?

Thanks

Not that I'm aware of. I measure my larger lenses (length and diameter) and then look at the case inside demensions. Lowepro has some excellent lens cases at reasonable prices if you shop around. Note that I am only familier with 35mm lenses. Good luck!

There is a Pentax 645 "Interchangeable Lenses" guide and it tells you which cases and hoods belong to which lens. This guide is also available for 6x7 and 35mm Pentax systems. A must have for each format.

Thanks to Phil and others for the info. Does anyone know where I can get a PDF version of the 645 Lens guide?

The Pentax web site has all the old manuals, though they are b&w photocopies.

Yeah I can only find the 35mm lens guide on the Pentax site as well. Here are colour copies I found on another web site, much easier to read. The A and FA lens guides.

The password is Pentax if you are asked for one.

The 645 lens review in this forum also mentions the soft cases, see Pentax 645 Telephoto Primes - Lens Reviews and Specifications - SLR and Interchangeable Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
