    Default Lowepro Stealth Reporter 300 AW Big Enough for 70-200mm F2.8 Sigma Lens?

    Dear All,

    Just wondering if the Lowepro Stealth Reporter 300 AW bag is big enough for a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens plus a DSLR body, one or two smaller lenses and some extra?

    Care to share your experiences with this bag?

    Thanks a lot.

    Cheers!

    Default just barely

    http://www.7daycameras.co.uk/lenses/sig70200%202.8.htm

    this one shows dat the sigma lens is abt 18cm long.

    http://www.lowepro.com/Products/Shou...er_300_AW.aspx

    lowepro list the bag as 19.5cm tall. so, u shld be able to squeeze the lens in with 1cm+ to spare. but, 70-200mm is abt 82cm in diameter and plus the tripod collar ring, u might find it a tough squeeze shld u need to fit in another 2-3 more lens, depending on how to arrange ur bag pockets.

    hope it helps?

    Yes it should be big enuff. I am using the old version (Lowepro S&F Reporter 300 AW) and I can fit in one DSLR body, one 70-200mm f2.8 lens w/ tripod collar, a mid size lens (e.g 17-40mm f4L), one 50mm f1.8, and an external flash, along with other small accessories (eg spare batts, CF card) that fit into the smaller pockets.

    u can. but normally its recommended to store them in ur bag separately. attaching a lens will restrict the amt of usable space left in ur bag.

    Bigma is referring to the Sigma 50-500mm. You mean you got that lens? If so a Minitrekker might be better, its a big lens! (hence the nick 'Bigma')

    Then it's my fault I meant I got a Sigma 70-200mm Not too much interested in big lenses like 50-500mm at the moment.

    Cheers!

    Off topic a little.

    Can the Bigma (50-500mm) fit into the Lowepro Stealth Reporter 400AW?

    actually consider the 300AW and 400AW, why not just top up a bit for 400AW, just little bit bigger but more space for you to put things (by not squeezing them).

    Good to know that. Acutally I prefer sling bags to backpacks. Easier to change lens I guess. I don't carry too much stuff when shooting out, mostly two to three lenses plus a flash and a couple of filters. So I got myself a Nova 4 AW. Compact AW is not compact at all imo, too big for my gear and size

    Nova 4 has better protection than Stealth Report 300 AW and is cheaper too. Don't like the soft cover of Stealth Report's, especially when putting the Sigma 70-200mm lens in.

    cheers!
