I spoke to one TT rep on the phone and asked if I could get a 5D2 with a long lens mounted, a 24-105 and the 16-35 into the bag. The photo showed just the camera and the long lens in the bag.

His response was that one could squeeze my other two lenses into the space that the long lens was in, because the bag is soft sided.

Now, I would not want to squeeze two lenses into a space even if there was room; I'd rather have a more modern bag with padded dividers. I guess that conversation made up my mind.

if looking for something thats "covert" has anyone considered lowepro's classified series?

i would say the lowepro is a cross between the TT retrospective and ud designs.

I tried the Classified and I hated it.

I'm an unabashed fan of TT gear and these bags look very nice but I don't think I'll be throwing away my Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home just yet. They look like they will compete head on withthe Crumpler Million Dollar Home series and those bags are awesome.

I've been using a messenger style Crumpler for about 4 years - there is no way I'd ever go back to having a bag with dividers for one body and two or three lenses. I love the convenience of just being able to reach into the bag and there it is. Trust me your gear is tough enough to be transported in a padded bag.

I like it but not the price tag but it's right in line with the Domke which it reminds me of, I may get one

I'm using the Lowepro Stealth Reporter series and am happy with it.

I ordered the Retrospective 10 yesterday and am excited. I have the UD20, UD30 (my favorite bag) and a UD40. They have their place as well but I really don't like working with the zippered top, the retrospective you can fold the flap behind the bag against your hip and use it as a lens changing bag. But the main reason I got it is to have my MKIII with the 85L mounted in the bag and the 24-70 in the pocket but also because I can if I want, put the camera body in the outside pocket and several lenses inside like the UD series but with an open top for quicker lens change (that zipper really does grab at things when I'm in a hurry trying to pull lenses out on my UD30. I looked at the UD35 but it did not look like something I'd be comfortable using. I howevery would have passed on the Retrospective if it had a space for a computer, I don't shoot that way and want it as simple an light as possible. There are tons of other bags to choose from if I ever want to carry a computer.

If I like the Retrospective 10 as much as I think I will, then I'll probably get the lens bag as well for when I only want to carry one or two spare lenses or a lens and a flash and keep it light.

I had a Classified 200AW and I couldn't stand it. It just wasn't for me.

I have a TTP UD20, which I use for rangefinder gear and LOVE it. I might go for a UD60 for the DSLR gear... I shoot out of the UD20 all the time, but I have to agree, the "slit" to access gear isn't as convenient to shoot out of as messenger style bags. But I like it. You can fold over the two sides of the bag to open it up more.

I see the Retrospective bags as TTP's take on the Crumpler ____ Million Dollar Home bags. I have two of the latter (6 and 7, "classic") and they're "okay."

I don't think anyone can be disappointed with TTP's stuff; it's built really well from excellent materials.

Looking forward to it. Any chance you have a photo of it while it's slung over your shoulder? I'd like to see how it conforms to a person. If not it's no big deal.
