Summary: I have been using this bag for the last (9) months and this is a follow-up review to the one I posted 1-19-2008. This bag is truely amazing. It holds all of my gear in the main compartment with the use of the adjustable divider system, including the following: Nikon D300 body with Nikon AF-S 17-55mm F/2.8 DX Lens with hood in bottom center portion of bag under the camera body/attached lens.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Summary: To me the real genius of the design is the height of the bag which makes it possible to carry two long lenses vertically, thus keeping the bag compact. Mine carries: Canon 5D with battery grip Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 Canon 100-400mm f/4-5.6 Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 Canon 17-40mm f/4 Canon 50mm 1.4 Canon 1.4x extender Plus, all of the lenses' hoods and tripod mounts, polarizing filter, cable release, cards, etc.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
Summary: One of very few bags that will hold a 70-200mm lens upright. With a 70-200mm lens there is still room for a pro body with a 17-55 or 24-70mm lens attached and two more loose lenses in the bag. The outer pocket is large enough to hold a large strobe and a battery pack and it has inner pockets that are good for filters and similar items. Designed for a waist belt which helps with distributing the weight onto the hips. Two problems to consider with this bag.
Summary: This bag is amazing. It holds all of my gear in the main compartment with the use of the adjustable divider system, including the following: Nikon D300 body with Nikon AF-S 15-55mm DX Lens with hood reversed and attached to body Nikon MB-D10 Battery Grib attached to body Nikon AF-S 70-200mm VR Lens (Without hood) Nikon AF-S 105mm VR Lens (Without hood) Nikon AF 10.5mm DX Fisheye Lens Nikon AF-S TC-17E II Teleconverter Nikon SB-800 Speedlight Nikon MB-D10 AA Battery Pack...
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features, Weatherproof
Summary: I have purchased many bags over the years and this one I find to be the most versatile. I Bought it from B&H last year and carried it through Europe. Granted I went a little heavy, 15.0 lbs at the airport scale but everything about this bag is top quality. It fit under the seat of the airplane with no serious problem.
