A relatively small bag that can hold a big lens.
, August 10, 2012
My reasons for looking at this bag were pretty simple: I wanted a bag that I could carry my 70-200 f2.8 attached to the camera in along with another lens or two that wasn't too big. In these regards the bag performs as advertised. Now while the bag's buiild it very good I do have some reservations about it.
1. When carried on the "right" side of the opened bag, as pictured by lowepro, the lens hood for my Sigma 70-200 catches on the strap that is there to help hold the center wall in position. Reversing the position of my lenses in the bag (putting the big lens under the strap) does make it easier to pull out the lens but it does alter the camera's body possition when attached.
2. I find the top of the bag a little hard to open far enough to make camera access easy. I may be better at it and find it works but it doesn't quite seem to open up the entire top for easy access.
I can't comment on the tablet pocket as I do not have one of those at this time.
If you have a large camera body with an extra grip in will probably be too big for this bag. My little DSLR fits fine I had looked at buying this bag from a photographer using a big bodied camera with grip who said it doesn't fit.
The slot for an extra card will hold one card in what I'd consider the standard protective case but it's tight.
Finally I can not comment on the bags wear characteristics at this time. I am a big guy and it seem to fit but I haven't worn it for a long period of time.
For reference what I currently have in the bag's main section are a Rebel body attached to either a Sigma 70-200 2.8 or Sigma's 17-70 with enough space left for my 18-55 kit lens.
