Grabbed one of these today from Harbor Freight. SLIGHTLY smaller and lighter than the Pelican which for me is a plus. Replacement foam is $20.00 US but the foam for the Pelican is $50.00. I don't own the Sony 600mm lens but may rent one sometime. I don't now if the case will swallow that lens. I'll measure it later.

Well, I went to work on my new case today. I managed to get by with using just one of the two pick-a-part layers of foam. A Third is a thinner foam layer which is below the Pick-a-part layer. I did screw up though. I have somehow wound up with a large void near the hinged side of the case. I'm afraid it's not balanced well in this configuration. Your thoughts?

I don't know.

I looked at mine, and its tight against the case all the way around.

I took my stuff out and poked and prodded around thinking pressure from something in the middle might be pulling the edges in, but I couldn't duplicate the problem, and the fact that it happens with the lid closed is even more perplexing.
