Any one using Slingshot 200 AW? How does it perform?

I am considering to get a bag for myself. Probably to fit 1 body, 3 mid-size lens and a flash.

I am not looking into shoulder bag or backpack as its too common and the later is abit troublesome. Belt and pouches (lens case) are good alternatives but I wonder if they hurt one's waist for long run especially when they are fully loaded and hinder movements. :think:

Any guys here are specialist in bags? Please give me some advice. ;)

Thanks.

So far I like it, feels more comfortable than a shoulder bag but does not fit a 70-200 f2.8.

How much does it cost for a brand new one? And did you bought it a CP?

some might like to consider the tamrac velocity slingpack series. seen it at TK photo. its roomier than the slingshot AW and the bigger ones (7 and 8) can even carry a DSLR/SLR with grip. :)

Thanks for the suggestion. TK Photo is in Shaw Tower - Beach Road? Never been there before.

Bought at CP for $85.
I put my 70-200 f2.8 at the bottom, camera with grip mount mounted with 17-40, other slots squeeze a 28-75 & 50mm 1.8. Flash put on the top compartment.
Love this bag :lovegrin:

this one not very practical as it will be difficult to get the camera with long lens out from the side access.

The bag looks spacious. Is it troublesome to turn it to the front and get ur staff ? Will the bag lost is CG when the camera is unloaded when you sling at the back ?

Buy Buy Buy!!!

Wah, I didn't know so many people interested in this bag. Maybe someone can do a MO for this bag. LOL. I am really eager to get myself one of this, but now exam period so camping in for books until late Nov!

From what I can see from the picture, the length of that lens should be around 20cm.
