I did a search and didn't see this asked, but maybe I didn't search right... so I apologize if I missed it. I'm wondering what the best solution is for carrying an extra lens or two? Would that be something by Think Tank? If so, what belt would I need if I were just carrying a couple of lenses (just smaller ones) and not a body?

Thank you in advance!

I like a belt. I got a simple webbed belt from Lowes ($5) and added a couple of Tamarac belt pouches (about $15-20 each). I can hang as many pouches from the belt as I need and it's light and doesn't cost much. You can also get "photographic" belt systems from most bag companies but, like most "photographic specific" products, they will cost more.

Think Tank's Hubba Hubba Hiney (HHH) is good for belt carrying a few small lenses. When the weather requires a coat, you put the HHH's shoulder strap on and carry it on shoulder or cross body. Get the Think Tank skin belt to use with the HHH.

LowePro light padded belt, like this http://store.lowepro.c​om/s-f-light-utility-beltexternal link
with your choices of LowPro lens cases http://store.lowepro.c​om/lens-casesexternal link or like this http://store.lowepro.c​om ...lens-exchange-case-100-awexternal link
makes a modular system.
For fairly light lenses, the lens cases will work on your trouser belt. But for heavier loads, the padded belt from Lowepro helps avoid the nuisance of your gear pulling your pants off! :D

I use the Tamrac Rally 6external link and really like it. It's enough for two longer lenses, or two short + one long and a body with lens attached, plus accessories.

The wanting never ends. The budget ends, oh yes, but not the wanting.

In addition to its belt system, Think Tank has lens bags in its Retrospective line: http://www.thinktankph​oto.com ...nestone-shoulder-bag.aspxexternal link

If you want something to attach to your existing belt, take a look at these cases,

They are very lightweight but have adequate padding to protect your gear.

Looks like an example of where being able to walk into a brick-and-mortar store to handle and compare the products is far better than reliance on pictures on a computer monitor, and the back-and-forth delays inherent to mail order shopping and return shipping! What we have lost by insisting on lowest price shopping via mailorder.

Oh, you make some great points! It would be awesome if I had a store nearby where I could try and buy instead of look, and study, and guess!!!

I'm lucky that I've got market leaders like ADORAMA and B & H, plus smaller stores like Photo Village, one train ride away. As to bags, B&H has eased up on locking down all bags with retractable wire. If you tried comparing two bags, it was like doing chest flys bringing the bags together and the bags would be misshapen under extreme tension. Now, it's easy peasy.
