Raincover for Nikon 200-500

->> Hey guys ... from your experience, what's the best raincover to get to use with a Nikon 200-500? I'm thinking about getting the Think Tank Hydrophobia 300-600, but have concerns about how it can handle the zoom.

->> It isn't perfect, as it is really built for a 600 (therefore long, and more importantly the front diameter is too wide for the 200-500 or 200-400). But because it is, it can handle the front portion moving in and out a lot as the lens zooms. I have used it that way, and know of no better solution. (I also have aquatech, and the Think tank is much easier to use... and kept my gear drier). So until ThinkTank makes a new version that better fits the 200-400 and 200-500 (hopefully), I use the 300-600 Hydrophobia.

->> Ditto, I use the Hydrophobia 300-600. It works really good.
