Can anyone confirm whether an ipad will fit in one of these bags?

Ipad will fit easily in the back sleeve - I can get my laptop in there.

Besides the few "fro man" YouTube video links posted on here, are there any other Retrospective 30 reviews out there?

The same review is up on Cambags too.

Corrected link!

That link is bad...

But this one is good...

Maybe I don't need the 30...? The 20 and 10 seem to be able to handle my gear list, I only have one gripped 5D Mark II and 3 lenses total...?

Yep, that is what has made me rethink my 10/20/30 decision. Nice review Ben!

Well rethink the size of what I need and want it for. I'm not trying to decide on the Retrospectives vs. Urband Disguises...and then of which ever one of those I choose, which one of them, etc...

I basically want a carry around bag, to hold my 5DMKII with either a 24-70, 70-200, or 50, mounted. Then hold what is not mounted, and maybe a 580EX Flash and all the little things, but yet not be real cumbersome, easy to get to and still take photos etc...

I think the Retro Pinestone 10/20/30 will work with that, and I plan to get more lenses, so the 20 or 30 is probably more for me.

How do most of you all compare the Retros vs. UDs, function wise etc? What does one do better than the other and what its for etc?

the main difference between retros and UDs is the zipper -vs- flap style top. The fabric used is also different and a bunch of the details, but the opening is the main difference.

if you want a 70-200 attached in any of these, you want a retro 20.

but yeah, pick the flap -vs- zipper top first, then get the size you need.

The R20 will fit a 70-200 2.8 on a 5DmkII no sweat and leave a bunch of space open as well. It's then a question of whether you want the camera/lens laying on it's side in the bag (R30) or standing vertical (R20).

+1 - the 20 is the way to go if you want the 70-200 mounted and vertical.
