Small cup yet functionally sound
As with many items for sale on BTA-MALL, sellers merely paste the mfg's description of a product, rather than simple general information about the actual product. I'd like to see less marketing blah blah blah, and more obvious general descriptions, or even some specifics, of an actual product.
Ounces(Without lid) = Just shy of 400 ml or 13.5 ounces or 1.7 cups
Ounces (With lid) = Just shy of 380 ml or 12.8 ounces or 1.6 cups
Height from top to bottom(Outside) = 4 & 3/4 of an inch
Height from top to bottom(Inside) = 4 & 3/8 inch
Bottom width = 2 & 1/4 inch
Top width(Inside) = 3 & 1/8
Top width(Outside) = 3 & 1/4 inch

5-star Mug w/ 1-star Lid :(
This is an awesome travel mug. Got it for my filmmaker brother and he loves it, but I tend to use it a lot more cause it looks so cool! Good insulation and appreciate the sturdy design.
Would give a 5 star rating BUT:
The lid creates a suction and is impossible to drink out of, even when open. Not sure if the one we got is just flawed, but it looks like the air-displacement hole either doesn't line up or wasn't drilled through all the way. I attached a photo of the hole-in-question. Hopefully others haven't experienced the same problem!

Deceptive pictures and wasn't as advertised.
The cup was nice , or so I thought. The packaging was nice but the pictures that the description showed were deceiving. I thought when I bought the thermos cup that it would be deeper inside to put hot liquids in but found out when I unscrewed the cap that it was just a metal insert that was placed in the cup that only fit half of the cup. When I went to take the insert out, the rest of the cup was made of plastic and frankly, cheap quality.
When you go to list an item, please take better pictures of the product. I feel like I got jipped because I paid $27 (originally $13 for the cup) for next day shipping.
Had I known that the cup just had a metal insert placed inside and that the cup was made of plastic, I'm not sure I would have bought it. Very deceiving and deceptive advertising. Will be looking around for another cup that keeps my coffee and hot chocolate HOT.

Zoom feature really throws 'em for a loop!
Pros: It's fun everytime after I show off the zoom feature of the lens....then I take the lens cap/lid off and take a drink of my coffee. If I only had a camera attached to the lens cup to take a picture of everyone's expressions!
Pros: I was very impressed by the nice stainless steal interior and the functionality and realisim of the lense's-cup's zoom feature! Also the over all quality of the cups design. This was worth the price of admission here.
Pros: a great conversation starter and peace especially for techno Geeks!
Cons: The bottom has what seems to be a dust cap that ships with every real lens. It is removable and I thought what a great gag it would be if I mounted the Lens Cup to my Nikon DSLR 5100 and demonstrated the zoom feature...then removed it from the camera body and took a drink! It seems like that was the idea here as there is a what appears to be a bayonet mount revealed below the cap. But it does not fit my DSLR 5100. So there is no way to attach the lens cup to my digital camera body. A dissapointment! I guess it allows to make the surface area of the bottom of the cup larger, so that it is not as top heavy ( as easy to tip over) as it is with the bottom dust cap in place. Also the cups top is fairly wide and screws onto the cup. Physically it looks like a Nikon lens cap but it is a bit of a giveaway that it says "LenZcup" on the top. Also the lid/lens cap is designed and looks just like a Nikon pinch to remove lens cap. Awesome design detail! But the con here is funtionality of a to go coffee cup containing a hot spillable and staining coffee inside! You have to completely unscrew the lid to take a drink! This leaves a fully loaded disaster at the ready to happen..... to splash about all over your cars interior and or your suit and tie! A better design idea guys....still make the the top/cap removable, incase you want to eat soup and or wash the cup, but take one of the pinch ears that you've molded into the lens cap design and make it a flip tab so now the lens cap/ lid serves as a sippy non-spill removable lid! I know you can't please all of the people all of the time! No charge for the design improvment idea ....just send me one of the newly designed lids!

A little leaky when closed
Let's be clear: this is more a joke than anything else.
Still it does the trick. My colleagues here in the US are used to seeing me around with my camera equipment and they do double-takes when I sip from my lens.
The cup is functional and looks pretty much like the real thing - well enough to pass for it without a close look.
I post a picture of the two side by side for your convenience in evaluating the resemblance. Not perfect: I dropped one star considering the price. [Update 3/3/16: I paid $20 for it, at the current $10 it's worth ****]
Other caveat: there is an opening that allows you to drink from the cup when the lid is on, unfortunately it is not watertight when closed. I dropped another star for that.

Realistic looking, canon not printed on cup anywhere, a couple design flaws
So I really like this cup. It's pretty realistic. However I was expecting it to say Canon somewhere on it since that was the description, but it doesn't. That's ok I guess. They'd probably get sued if they used the name Canon on it anyway. It does have a sliding drinking hole cover, so that's nice. There are a few design flaws as a cup though. The bottom of the cup slides around pretty easily. Makes me afraid I might spill something. So it would be nice if it had a rubbery grippy bottom. The other thing that is kind of annoying is that there is no air release hole on the other side of the lid. So when you go to take a sip, it's really hard to get any liquid out since the air can't escape anywhere. I might end up going all "bob the builder" and drilling a small hole in the other end just to fix this problem.

Awesome novelty mug with personality
The cup is well made and a great novelty item. It is almost a 1:1 size to my 70-200mm f4, although the mug is a little taller. For the length the cup has, it would have been nice if it was deeper internally to allow more of your drink of choice. For this reason I gave it 4 stars. Visually, I don't see anyone who is a photographer (amateur or otherwise) mistaking it for a real lens, especially a Canon L series. At the same time it is a good representation of one. It does what I want it to, hold liquid, look cool doing it and showing off a bit of personality.

Needs a drinking hole.
Really cool mug - but you have to completely take the cap off to take a drink - there's no drinking hole in the lid. I drive to work every morning and having an open cup of hot coffee in my car is never ideal.

Looks Legit. Speaking as a photographer, its good enough to fool most people as long as they dont pick it up and play with it.
Im personally planning on taking this on a cruise with me to carry around alcohol with no one being the wiser. Ill just go to a private place to freshen up my ordinary, bland, soda. Seems like a fairly decent product.

This cup design makes me laugh, it's just too cute! Received it yesterday so I used it this morning for the first time. I came across some potential problems. There is something wrong with the opening in the lid where the liquid comes out. I can only get a dribble when I drink it. The insulation really isn't that great either. My tea was very hot when I made it and by the time I got to work (about 10 min later) it was almost room temp. I can see how the numbers can be rubbed off over time. But I think if you just don't put it in the dish washer, it should be fine. This cup probably functions better as a mug to use at home instead of a travel mug with a lid. Other than that, it's worth the price. Definitely a photographer novelty cup.
