just what I needed

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my Panasonic G5 and two extra lenses. It holds those and my Macbook Air with all the cords,etc. I've had it for awhile and so far I really like it a lot.

Pros: Seems to be of extremely good quality and a good size for what I carry.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently took this bag on a week-long photo trip and used it to carry my Nikon D7000 with a 200mm telephoto attached plus a wide-angle lens and a 50mm prime. It also carried my iPad, chargers for everything, and misc camera gear, cheat sheets, cellphone and pens. I found the bag nearly ideal for my needs, which included frequently removing (and replacing) my camera and switching lenses.

Pros: Configurable, accessible, plenty of space, decent shoulder pad, durable fabric, zippers/clasps easy to get at, expandable outside pockets for water bottle or securing loose lens caps.

Cons: Handle is not at the center of gravity. No way to fasten a tripod.
