I've got a Tamron 200-500 that is about 9 inches in length. I love it but it's a monster and few of my camera bags will hold it. What camera bag would be a good choice for a Canon 7D with a shorter lens mounted and carrying the Tamron? All I'd be carrying is the two lenses, the camera and some peripherals. (I know. I should carry a tripod, too but oh, how I hate carrying a tripod. I usually lean against a tree, against a fence, car door, whatever.

Thanks!

There are quite a number of bags/backpacks that would fit the bill. Have a look at the Lowepro Vertex 200, it will easily fit your gear and allow room for the inevitable expansion.

Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

Do you plan to hike far with this gear? I use a Loka backpack (by F-stop) with a large ICU (internal camera unit - the padded part of the backpack) for my 100-400, which sounds similarly sized to your Tamron. I can actually fit it attached in a medium with the hood reversed, but I leave the hood on in the large ICU. The large ICU is 14" long. The Loka has an internal frame, good padding, and keeps the weight on my hips. I've had it fully loaded and walked all day without any complaints (my feet get sore long before my back).
