Hi to all,

After this year of intensive equine competitions (with "abrasive" dust and sands all around, heavy rains), my 3 year old 70-200 VRII is completely wrecked.

Even though I cleaned it and took care, dust got in massively, rubbed everything and killed the AF motor, some inner glass, etc.

So,apart from addding a front protective filter (even if the front glass hasn't been damaged)..

What is the best way or product, according to your field experiences, to avoid these "dust/sand" issues (not during transport but in the field) and if possible, brands and links to specific products you've tested ?

Many thanks

Take care
