Hi All.

What would be the smallest (but still decently padded) bag to carry a 40d, 28-135 lens (attached), 70-200 lens, and 430 flash? I wouldn't mind being able to squeeze in a 50mm, but that's not critical.

I thought about the Slingshot 100, but the pointy part on top adds extra bulk that I don't need.

thanks,

- Frank

Just head down to Best Buy and pick up one of their small bags. They have a bunch to choose from, are pretty cheap, and you get to try them out with the 40 they'll have sitting there. I have a real small one from them to hold just my 40 with 17/55 mounted and a 100mm. It was something like $20.

for reviews of POTN members of many bags,

but the Nova bags are good, very padded.

6 Million Bag due to the length of the 70-200.

But I love my Domke bags, and this one would suit your gear

What about a Domke F-5XC? It sounds about right. I will have one later today and will try to post a few pics to compare it to the F-5XB and F-5XA. But I am only speculating at this point.

These bags are lightly padded but more padding than domke usually provides which is none.


But I am only speculating at this point about the FXC. Did I say that already?

I think a Nova 2 will be able to fit all that. I suggest you go to a store and try it out (i.e. put your stuff in it), though.

I have a Nova 2 and can fit an Xti w/ 28-135, Sigma 10-20, 50 f/1.8. When I need my 430 EX, I fit it in the side mesh pocket.

I know the 3 will, you can check my review but maybe the Nova 2 will.
