Re: Review of Billingham F-stop 1.4
Happy new year too !
Thanks, and nice pictures. The F-Stop 1.4 is my workhorse Billingham bag after the L2, both similar in looks.
My main choice for Billingham was the durability (the distributor claims he uses his Hadley daily for 15++ years), and then it boiled down to these two, 1.4 and L2, as they fit my camera stuff well, and were light enough in weight (every 100 grams is critical for my weak shoulders :-)). I use the 1.4 when I bring longer lenses or a bigger DSLR; otherwise, the L2 is great.
Having both bags, I can move inserts between each one to create smaller compartments if needed, and even some salvaged from older non-Billingham bags.
Personally, the only things I wish for were that the front straps were replaceable like the Hadley's, and that they had more comfortable shoulder pads than the SP40 or SP50.

Nice work on the review. The pro sells out pretty fast at tin cheung but the 1.4 is an excellent choice nevertheless.
