    Quite easy to swing it to the front to access my stuff.
    Loss of CG... no lah, much better on my shoulders after taking out the camera

    Its heavy when i stuff in so many things especially my 70-200. I still feel ok walking around a few hours with everything loaded in... but if whole day
    Well to ease load on shoulder I just take out the camera & hang over my head lor.

    From what I can see from the picture, the length of that lens should be around 20cm.
    So lucky to buy this bag finally. Have been calling shops up frequently to check if stocks have arrived.
    Then one Saturday morning after shooting, just pop into CP... there it is waiting for me The shop assistant still told me, the stock came in a few hours ago only.

    Hmm, don't know yet.
    Got to see if I get the Slingshot, which of my present bag can be replaced by it.

    Don,
    Slingshot is not wide enough, I feel it is good as a replacement for the TLZ type bags. I still keep my MicroTrekker 200AW if I want to carry more than one lens and still keep a Tenba DB15C bag for travelling O/S when I need to bring along my notebook along.

    Slingshot nice design though. I like it alot, in fact I used it most often now, but that means I carry very little with me, probably camera with one lens and flash if I needed but most of the time, just camera and one lens only.

    are the straps of the slingshot long enough to be slung across the chest? rather than on one shoulder?

    How do you mean?

    The way it was design, is that so it could slide from the backpack position to the bag placed in horizontal position with the opening right in front of the chest and the good thing is the bag can also be your elbow support for when shooting handheld.

    I believe the Lowepro website should show these advantages, I think it's their selling point.

    hey i got the bag from CP a few weeks ago, I even have to wait almost a month for it..but I did left my number for them to contact me which they did.

    The bag feels awkward when slinged...perhaps I wasn't too used to such bags... But its pretty big, provided you not really some pro or what...

    Its quite easy to shift to the front and it seems to be a great idea over how the camera could be accessed.
