    Agreed.. Sirui, Think Tank, Lowepro can all be bought from TK. The tripods and bags at the show has a very small variety.

    Go to TK and you can even get uncle philip to show you how to use the tripod. He spent an hour plus showing me the different tripods and how to use the one that I was particular interested in. That's before I even bought anything from him...

    Actually I like to know, I always has been using camera sling bags, If travel, wont thief steal your lens from your backpack in crowded streets?

    Not if you are using the lowepro flipside series. That's the reason why I choose the flipside 200 for travel most of the time I got too carried away.

    definitely, but I thought that sling bag is more safe than backpack ma, you dont know if someone is opening your bag from behind but sometime, all sling bag, very heavy sia lol..

    Will definitely check the flipside 200

    Buy backpack with those lockable zip (don't know how to call it), can put number lock on the zip. I got a TT HD backpack which I lock it when I walking inside the crowd, or when taking a nap during transiting at airports. Not totally thief proof but better than nothing.

    Lowepro Fastpack 250. It doesnt look pretty but gets the job done and doesnt cost an arm and a leg for a camera backpack.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    How about Karachi Outpost from Crumpler. Open from behind... when you are carrying it, nobody else can open the bag. Good for security and looks but weight, price and function wise (as in changing lens etc) will definately take a hit.

    I think the Thinktank Shapeshifter can fit a 14" laptop and may be a better choice.
