    I'd think it would be possible to meet in say, on one of the weekend nights in town.

    Those staying around Serangoon Central, can come over to pick it up from me direct - but give me a call at 9640 8500 first. Thanks!
    that's great.

    i'll probably bring along my kit to let you guys take a look. Monday evening fine with you guys? I have 9am to 6pm classes that makes no sense if I bring my kit out to...

    City central, like BK Peninsula Plaza; say, 7pm?

    Ah good. See you guys on Wednesday evening then.

    I assume most of you would want the brochures too, right?

    I assume you're talking about the Modular Accessory & Strap Accessory Systemô?

    http://www.tamrac.com/g_modularaccessory.htm

    It really depends on your usage, but from the descriptions and photos I've scanned through the site, there are primary differences:

    1. Raincover seems to be non-existent
    2. Lens cases opening by zips - it is going to slow you down struggling with it horizontally. That's my experience with Lowepro, thought Tamrac may have it differently designed, but whatever it is, I sure can't tell from the photos.
    3. How are you going to carry other things like I do? Notepad, CF card wallet, earplugs, extra batteries, small 50/1.8 etc?

    One key thing that is recommended for the ThinkTank system that I must explain, which is, the camera body should not be kept in a pouch while being on the belt. It's not a safety concern/call thing, but more so a real world issue, imagine this - once you take your camera body out, would you want to have one empty pouch taking up space on your belt's real estate? It will definitely hinder you physically - as well as this. Imagine you're in the open, and suddenly it rains. Are you going to be able to move as fast with a camera slung on you, or kept as extra weight on your belt? There may be some who would say, "my camera isn't weather-sealed" - to which I'd suggest, keeping an eye out for rain shelter nearby as you move; for those whose cameras are weather-sealed, then you still have the option of moving slower to shelter at the expense of getting a little wet

    Hope this helps!

    No problem. So long you don't feel I'm not selling koyok

    One thing I forgot to mention. The Lightning Fast flash pouch, fits a 550/580EX with an OmniBounce snugly. Couldn't find anything from LowePro that fit like that.
