I am looking for suggestions on a bag to carry a 40d w/ grip and a 70-200 2.8 mounted. I like the idea of the thinktank holster but there is no storage place for tripod ring when I use a monopod.

Domke F-3x will swallow it with no problem, and give you room for a flash, small alternate lens and/or water bottle and lunch.

I second Jon's recommendation. I can fit my 40D with grip and 70-200 f/2.8 mounted no problem. The F-3X is one fantastic bag.

I have been looking for the same answer, but have a few more lenses. I have been looking at the Domke F-2 and Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home. I think both of these are big enough, but not 100% sure. I was going to go with the Domke but then read that it doesn't provide much protection/padding. So I started looking at the Crumpler 7 MDH. Any thoughts or suggestions? Likes or dislikes about either bag? Will these bags fit my gear?

How are you positioning that combo within the F-3X?

I know the lowepro fastpack 350 and slingshot 300 will both hold that combo.

I had 7MDH.. I had normaly i had my 30D + BG, 35-350, 17-35, and flash light on my bag. with some extra caps, batt n memory card on the front pocket. but there is a few problem, u will feel the weight after sometimes, due to the fact that it is a sling bag. Secondly, if you need to have a 3rd lens with u, u will not be able to fit it anymore. I suggest, you get yourself a backpack, like the Karachi outpost or lowepro sling AW. anyway its just my 2cents... :D

I used a Lowepro Toploader 75AW for exactly that, this past weekend.

The F-2 will do fine. So, for that matter, will an F-802. Domke bags aren't heavily padded, it's true, but in something on the order of 30 years I haven't suffered any impact damage to any of my gear. In addition, don't forget that the outside pockets provide an additional amount of protection to the contents of the main compartment.

Nose down.

the 7mdh doesn't exactly accomodate a camera with the 70-200. It's a bit too tall and the top barely latches. Un attached, it's fine. I'm going to have to do some rearranging in mine.

Agreed. If you remove the flap in the front pocket, it will take a big flash too, plus there's a pocket in the lid for memory cards.

Thanks guys. I didn't want to but might have to resort to a sling or backpack. I really like the shoulder bags, but also want comfort.

I guess that is why most people have more then one bag. I already have two but keep on out growing them.

The Domke F-2 with the Post Office Pad on the strap's quite comfortable.

I have my 7mdh loaded up and with the shoulder pad it's not bad. Of course, most of my shots have been location based, so I haven't carried it around for more than thirty minutes at a time, but so far, it hasn't been too bad. I am going to get a back pack as well though...

I have the 40D with grip (sometimes) and the 70-200 2.8 IS attached in my Velocity 9x bag. Very comfy and I still fit 2 more lenses and a flash. This is only if you like sling bags. I have to have one because I like holding the gear that way.
