What's a hoodie for on lenses?
I mean the hoodies that is made of sponge material , not the plastic hoods we use on our lenses..

Do they fill a purpose?.

Thanks,..

They're to protect the lens hood which can suffer scuffs and scatches during use such as wandering through the bush or setting the camera and lens down wherever convenient and also for storage and those with big fast $5000 lenses often want to prevent this as it can seriously impact resale value or they just don't like to see scuffs and scratches on their expensive equipment. And those big lens hood are not cheap to replace. About $500 for some of the big Canon lenses...

Ouch, $500 for a lens hood? That's half way to a good tripod and head. What do they make them out of? What in the world justifies that sort of price unless it's part of a milspec toilet?..

Maybe military toilets are made out of Canon lens hoods?..

These are not typical lens hood but surely Canon charges a premium price for them because no one else makes them. Have a look at the size of them at the link.$500 really isn't a lot of money when you consider these lenses are about $6000..

Just looked up the price for the 800mm. $12,000. $500 for a lens hood, yea that's not such a bad price I guess. ..
