Ruggard Neprene Lens cases

Just thought I would offer some feedback on this Ruggard lens case

I was looking to free up some space in my camera bag and one thing Pentax lens cases are, are bulky.

That's not a bad thing, but I needed more room in the bag.

I found the Ruggard Neoprene lens cases through B&H. Bought one, liked it, and bought a bunch more.

I'm happy to say their LPN-F25X30 fits most of my small Pentax lens collection,

DA 15mm F/4 ED Lens, DA 21mm f/3.2 Lens, DA 35mm f/2.4 AL Lens, DA 50mm f/1.8 Lens, DA 70mm f/2.4 Lens

The white tag is not part of the case, I had a local tailor add that on. That's my only issue with the cases, there is no exterior tag

to identify what lens is in the case. Nothing sticks to Neoprene, so a sew on label was my only option. That aside I would recommend

the product to anybody looking to free up more space in their camera bags.

question on how to eliminate lighting reflections from the eyes.

Thanks for the opinions, and pjv thanks for the link to Catchlights.
I understand why the lights look better at the 10 and 2 position, is because we are adjusted to see light coming from above. Seeing big softbox lights reflecting in the lower eye looks odd to me, and I've just started to hate seeing it. I also can't stand it if the light is softbox shaped, square, rectangular, octagonal or other. It is an effect that is just over used and I'm growing to hate it all together.

I'm curious if anybody has developed another photographic technique that provides the brightness, but does not provide the obvious reflection in the eyes.

Yes there is photoshop, but I have not been able to undo a soft box reflection out of a persons eye and not leave obvious traces. So I'm back to wondering of there are any tricks for photographing the model that does not show soft box reflections in the eye.

Thank you all for your advice, suggestions and opinions.
To answer some questions,
The reason why I like the SCENE functions is because I'm mot good enough to create the pictures I want using the other manual setting on the camera. When I see something I want a picture of, its now or never and I generally have not had the time to sit down, or go back to school on how to take pictures the old fashioned way, no offense intended. The SCENE functions are that intermediate step I need and (my opinion is) its what many other amateur photographers, or vacation only photographers need.
I did pick up the 18 to 135 lens with the body, but I found the SCENE functions takes better pictures indoors and low lighting with the non-zoom lenses so I was looking for feedback on those lenses.
I did get lucky with this shot of a water bomber from my 50-300 on a local fire nearby last week.

Again thanks for your help!
