I knew I forgot something :oops:...:P .

Bjorn knows me from the Fotomateforum - apparently I'm one of the very few who is/was not completely convinced of the sharpness of the Carl Zeiss 24-70 f/2.8 SSM :lol:.

So sure mate, I'll do it right away.

Crumpler 6million dollar home.

Holds everything plus ipod, sunglasses and phone. Will need to upgrade it eventually as I am always shooting with the 70-200 and then need to change lenses to put everything away as it will not fit when mounted on the body.

I just got a 7D (yesterday) with some nice lenses, and a speedlight etc, and after searching around on the web found the Naneu U-120 http://www.naneubags.com/products.mdv?p=ug-u120

Quoting myself:

In hindsight, though the bag is well made, I wish I had given more thought to my choice.
With camera, two lenses (EF-S 15-85 IS USM, EF 70-300 IS USM), battery holder and speedlight on board, it tips the electronic scales in my bathroom at 6.5 kg. That's nothing at all to a weightlifter, but you are certainly conscious of it on your back, exspecially on the steep hills of my home city. And if I throw my laptop in the compartment designed for that purpose there's another 2kg ... and it feels like much more.
As I said, it's well built, sturdy and offers lots of protection. However the camera compartment consists of a removable inner padded bag inside the outer shell. To access your equipment you open the two zips for the outer bag, and then the two zips on the inner, after first lifting the velcro retainers. This is not a quick or quiet process. Apart from that, I like it :-)

Razvan,
I like that bag, especially the front area for storing odds and ends.

Yes,I love it too. I can store all my accesories in front like spare rechargeable batteries,lens & body caps,SD cards,cleaning cloth,flash "leg",infrared remote...& in the upper side,it's reserved for my polarizer filters.

As I do a ridiculous amount of hiking I always go backpack.

I have been using a Lowepro Primus AW for the last 8 months (love the bag) but am going on a 2 month trek through Europe soon and needed a spot for a laptop so have just added a Lowepro CompuRover AW.

Have only tested the CompuRover a little but love it so far.

I love this Kata shoulder bag, It holds everything in my list except the big Vivitar lens and my Tripod but they have there own cases. It will also carry a 15" laptop in a pinch.

Plenty of storage in the front flap. And see the Sigma 100-300 f4 fits nicely

well i had one bag, a Lowepro Nova Mini

Image

that was for body with lens on it, and spare lens, but now im begining to get more kit, body, 3 lenses, flash, batteries, memory cards, tripod etc to carry it all around or even to keep in one place in the house was getting difficult, so went to warehouse express's warehouse where they have a shop with same prices as the website and went through loads of bags trying them out etc, and fouund the best one to be Lowepro Slingshot 302 AW

Image

which has enoug space plus little more for any other gear i might get but also a holder for tripod so i can keep everything together.
