Last year I reviewed the Nikon 24-70mm lens thermo cup, which I think was pretty cool (and I still use it sometimes when I’m out and about). This time I got something even better to review; a Nikon 70-200mm thermos lens bottle from LensMug.net, a 1:1 model of the real Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens.
- Vacuum sealed, double-layered stainless steel interior.
- Leak-proof, rust-proof finish.
- Easy-pour stopper to keep liquid from spilling over.
- Rubber-grip focus.
- Zoom rings (it doesn’t do any actual zoom, though).
- Tripod collar to use as a handle.
- Holds 485 ml of liquid.
It is not dishwasher safe, so this means there’s no risk of you (or your wife/girlfriend) putting your real Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens in the dishwasher by accident 🙂
So, how does it feel? Very good, actually, it’s quite sturdy and the plastic feels like decent quality. The rubber rings makes the bottle real easy and secure to handle so it doesn’t slip in your hands. Also the tripod collar makes for a good handle when carrying the bottle around.
When you unscrew the top, you get a cup like with many other thermos bottles, this one has the tripod collar attached so you can use it as a handle.
The lens bottle has amazing details and I guarantee you won’t be able to tell the difference between this, and a real lens, unless you’re close, touching it or lifting it. Here it is next to a real Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 lens (with a rubber hood from eBay on it):
This Nikon lens bottle is usually $49.95 but it’s currently selling at $44.95 with worldwide free shipping. Get yours today from LensMug.net, where you can also find thermos bottles and cups for other lenses, including Canon.
This was one of the shorter reviews I’ve written, but there’s really not much to write about a thermos bottle 🙂 Basically it does what it says on the box and it looks great. The perfect gift for the photog who already has everything!
