    Question Nova 5 AW or Stealth Reporter 500AW or Mini Trekker Aw?

    Hi peeps...

    Finally decided to retire my Lowepro Nova 3 and get a new bag. Considering to get either the Lowepro Nova 5 AW or Stealth Reporter 500AW or Mini Trekker Aw.

    I have got the following equipment.
    1 x 19-35
    1 x 28-75
    1 x 70-200 f4
    1 x camera body and a flash.

    Having a hard time to choose between the bags. Trying to think long term as well, if i upgrade from the 70-200 f4 to the 70-200 f2.8 IS, will the above mentioned bags still be big enough? Anyone knows the price of each? Anyone recommendations from people who tried the above?

    Thank you.

    suggest u go for either the 500AW or mini trekker, as both of them are long enuf internally to contain ur future 70-200mm/f2.8. (according to lowepro.com's measurements)

    problem now for u is whether u prefer shoulder bags or backpacks. i personally have both, but use according to different purposes.

    Yeah.. i have been using a shoulder bag all along.. but feel like having a change of style. Also, was thinking that maybe a backpack may offer better support, yet, the shoulder bag offers greater convenice in terms of changing lens. hmm.. so when do u find yourself using the mini trekker and when do find the stealth reporter more useful?

    how much did u pay for the bags? where did u buy them?

    Cheers!

    Is the Mini Trekker AW (new) at S$145 considered expensive?
