Rain Gear ...Think Tank Hydrophobia or AquaTech Sport Shield

->> I know there is a thread from 2008 on this subject but aqua tech has changed the design not sure if think tank has (mine is about 2 years old) and looks the same as what is currently being sold.

I am using it on a Nikon D5 with a 400mm f/2.8 what I do not like about it is the eye piece covers part of the screen. Just a personal annoyance ... I do lock my photos on the field and it you can not see the lock with out moving around the viewing window.

I did see how ever that the new aqua tech has a little "over hang" by the eye piece just wondering if it is a plus?

I need to buy something for my 70-200 and just wanted to see some pros and/or cons

So... Go what do you use and why

->> the think tank 70-200 is a little longer so will work better with a 100-400 just a drop shorter with that lens that I would like but workable where as the aquatec is very short witht that lens
