I showed it with the 100-400 attached to a MKIII, I think the 70-200 2.8 is a little taller but I'd do it, or get the 20, it's not really that big of a deal.

Yes, your pictures (and your review) are very helpful.

Having said that, the 70-200/2.8's are slightly longer than the 100-400L (7.8"/199mm vs 7.4"/189mm). So it will create a bigger bulge than shown in your photo.

I never said R10 is a bad bag -- it's probably perfect for my current gear. However, the R20 is arguably the better bag for those wanting to carry a 70-200/2.8 mounted. My dilemma lies with the Mk II ("to buy or not to buy"), not the Retrospective series....

:cool:

Ah. Didn't realize that. Still probably wouldn't be a huge issue - there is a lot of material in that flap and you'd just have to try it. For me, I'd think the 20 would still be too deep.

I just received my R10 yesterday. I had to come and review the photos here... Mine is green, and darker than they appear online.

In these shots on POTN it looks like a more neutral colour, with a darker tan edging and straps. Mine is green, a dark neutral green but pretty much green. I was definitely surprised.

I think I'd lean toward black now, though I don't think this will show dust or dirt... maybe I will fall in love soon. I will work on that!

I do think the size is amazing, wonderful. I can't believe I was looking at the 20 or 30, for all this holds! Now, to be able to lift it all. :-)

Care to post a photo (with the bag next to something for colour reference)?

A Macbeth Colour Chart (external link) is obviously the ideal, or you can simply use a US dollar bill....

Weird, maybe it's your monitor ( do I dare say that to anyone here) cause the photos I posted are the same color as my bags and yes there is a little bit of green in them, I guess that's why they call it Pinestone, a cross between pine and rocks?

THe only reason to get a 20 is for the additional depth (longer lens). I would not want to carry any more stuff in it. The 10 gets way heavy enough. I think it is common for all of us gadget freak photogs to load up on stuff when we really should only have 2 lenses (+1 on the camera) and a flash and some minor incidentals.

I just ordered a Retrospective 10 in Pinestone...
Hoping it gets here soon. A backpack + Summer does not feel that nice.

Ha! I am Canadian! But in the Bahamas, so I have some US and some Bahamian. They don't deal in Canadian.

Here are two shots. Maybe it is the light here, between the sky and sea - it is very blue compared to Ottawa. But I have to say the R10 does look lovely with the US dollar - the colours are comparable, and with the dollar on it, it looks a bit more like a grey-green.

Maybe I should stop staring at it. ;)

Well, yes. I think mine (in my eyes) seems more a heathered pine green... less stone.

But each day I am loving it more, so that is a good thing.

I ordered either the 10 or the 20, I've forgotten now :) , at the start of June when they were sold out but on backorder.

Seeing this thread has reminded me of my order. It seems to be taking a long time to fulfil those orders - did I read about a strike or something somewhere?

Considering the international membership of POTN, I don't think Canadian bills are going to be meaningful to many of them. On the other hand, US dollars (or Euro bills) are much more universally circulated and make for much better reference.

Yes, looking at your shots, I would definitely agree that there is a lot of green (far from neural grey), so "grey-green" is perhaps a good way to describe it.

(But of course, as a guy, I'm very colour-challenged....)

In her initial post, Janine's R10 definitely had a more neutral-gray look to it. However, it may be because of the warm surroundings.

Once Janine added a black accessory bag (which helps to set a reference), it became easy to see the green in the pinestone.

The outdoor light (bluish) may have helped as well.

Back indoors, but now with a black accessory bag as reference, it's easy to see the green.

By far, your photos showed the most green (and I'm not talking about the US greenback)....

Thanks for reproducing the previous photos, RetroBlader!

You're right, with the black accessory bag the green is more evident. But I see the edging as a medium tan, too. And the strap. Mine are green-grey and darker.
Or perhaps it is more reflective so the colours aren't as faithful.

Or my mind is confused from all this sun and warm air...

If you dont mind me asking:
I have Retro 30 and love it so much (the look, the carrying capacity, etc), so I used it as a transport bag from house to car when I have a shoot.
Now I want the smaller one for walking around, would Retro 10 a good fit for it ? My concern is I think Retro 10 is still to big for my walking around kit: XTi with 18-200, 430ex and 28 1.8, isnt it ?
Because Retro 10 is similar size with Retro 30, just 3 inches narrower, right ?
Thanks.

Actually I don't think so, its really about the same weight as the R-30 ( about 3 pounds) . I love the Domke F-5xc or Urban Disguise 30 for a small set up. Much lighter and compact. The Domke is less then a pound and forms to your body, the UD 30 is a little more luggage like but still much more compact then the R-10.

I am actually using my R-10 similar to how you use the 30, its not a small bag but it does hold a lot. Nice bag but not one I would take everywhere.
