    Default Any recomendation for Belt sys set up?

    As above i am looking for some belt sys set up.actually my requirement is quite easy juz to hold my 24-105 or 17-40 either 1. another bag for 50 or 85mm either 1.

    sometime is really a hassle to change lens if i am carrying my bagpack, thinking if they are juz near my waist it will be faster and less hassle.

    any CSers got any recomendation?

    I have the ThinkTank Pro Speed Belt V2.0, but sometimes when loaded, it feels like it's a bit narrow. In hindsight, maybe the wider steriod belt would work better with heavy loads.

    Orient Photo but TK have more stock on hand.

    I got the pro-speed belt + all the skin components as set and save quite a bit than getting one by one.

    will suggest need not to buy the set... not worth.

    my suggestion,

    Skin Chimp Cage <--- can have 2 small lens or 1 lens + 1 flash eg. 580EXII

    Skin Strobe extra if you need to have 2 lens in the skin chimp cage, other this can oso be use for accessories.

    Digital Hostler , you can have lens attach with body. If you are going to use a Grip, then choose Digital Hostler 40

    Above can let you have up to 3 Lens+ 1 Body + 1 Flash or 2 lens + 1 Flash +1 Body and accessories.

    If you want any add on, it will be R u thirsty, for your water bottle.

    Above shd fit up all your space.

    Of cuz belt not quoted above as it is a must and you decide which to choose.

    hope it help a little for you to make any decision.

    Or a cheaper Lowepro Offtrail system. mix and match the components, worked pretty well for me

    A single Change Up will be able to take all that. I had carried my 5D (without grip) + 17-40 (mounted) + 50/1.4 + 105 macro all in the main compartment. 580EXII is either in the side pouch or in the Lightning Fast attached on the belt.

    thks guys for the recomendation! now i got roughly wat i want. now must find time go dwn TK photo to take a look at the real thing.

    currently the best setup i think suitable for me is

    -pro speed belt
    -lens changer 35 for my 24-105 or 17-50 watever not on the camera
    -lens changer 15-- for my 85 or 50mm wichever i bring out.

    cause i think i will still bring camera bag out. i only want faster access to the lens to lesser the hassle frm taking out frm the bag or when i am nt carrying the bag(ex. like i can leave my bag at someone care) the belt sys is really will be great! those lens i want is at my side.

    1 more question can i buy changer 75 to put 24-105 or 17-50? =p
