Dear All,

Just wondering how you carry the 70-200mm f2.8 lens plus a SLR/DSLR body? I know Lowepro 75AW can do that, but don't quite like that bag. Any experiences/suggestion on the bag for this set up? Dont want to carry all the other lenses, just a 70-200mm f2.8 lens, plus a body and a flash.

Your input will be very appreciated.

Thanks and cheers!

uh, i opt to carry the camera body separate from the lens(es). if i were shooting, i'd be holding the setup by the tripod collar, and with the camera body strap wound around my right wrist, but weight is entirely supported by the tripod collar to save my wrist from unnatural flexion.

Domke F2, if it is just the camera lens and flash, it should be more than enough.
or the taller one (can't remember the model)

if you are thinking of buying, try the safrotto, domke lookalike.

NTUC plastic bag...

:thumbsup:

don't attract attention/bangla robbers, etc..


seriously,
I carry my lenses seperate, choosing to keep the camera on my body all the time for easy access

i use those generic lense holders TCW sells... this nice cushioned one sells for around 22$.. fits the 80-200 2.8d just nice...

for the lense attached to the body... hmmm... backpack lor.. tamrac expedition 1 - 3 seem to be the best in my opinion.
:thumbsup:
