4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable to carry, a little narrow, April 7, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lowepro Slingshot 200 All Weather Backpack (Black) (Electronics)
I bought this bag knowing I'd be carting around my camera and lenses around amusement parks for the better part of a week, and I'm happy to say that it's quite comfortable. The key is making sure you get the main strap adjusted to a place that the bag doesn't angle off your back from the bottom. The right-side strap should also be adjusted, as it keeps the bag well positioned as you move. It very easily rotates from your back to being upright in front of you.

Your lens selection will have some impact on its usefulness. I have a Canon 5D body, and I can't pack the camera in when the 70-200mm f/4 L is attached. It's just too long. I does fit just fine when I have the 24-105mm f/4 L attached, but I do have to invert the lens hood or, again, it'll be too long.

In addition to those two lenses, I have a 50mm f/1.4 with the hood on it, the charger and a SpeedLite 550EX, and they all fit pretty comfortably. As with any bag, you need to pull out the Velcro dividers and figure out the best way to make everything fit.
