Default Question. Has anyone tried this on FZ35 to protect the lens?

Has anybody tried this set-up on the FZ35 to protect the extended part of lens barrel from impact?

Added in this order:

Raynox RT5855W adaptor
Step-up ring from 58mm to 62mm
Step-up ring from 62mm to 67mm
Lens cap, 67mm

Are you trying to put a lens cover on the inner lens rather than the outer barrel?

saly - I read this on a web page where you can leave this on at all times to protect the lens barrel from bumps when the lens is extended. You also do not have to have the lens cap off when you turn the camera on. I have always kept a Pemaraal adapter on my FZ15 to protect the extended lens barrel. Thread title should have been lens barrel.

I see. I think this would work, provided the lens cap doesn't hit the outer barrel when you retract, and that you are not putting too much weight on the inner lens barrel. Do the step-up rings + cap stick out beyond the outer barrel when you turn the camera off? If so, I would be concerned about bumping it when off and stressing the inner lens barrel.
