I can't decide if I should get the retro 30 or the 20? I have owned the 30 before and loved it but now I am wondering about the retro 20? I don't carry much gear the 7D with the 70-200 MKII attached along with a 300 4 IS with a TC and for good measures the Sigma 17-50 2.8 OS.

Will the retro 20 handle this? The reason I am even thinking the 20 is because I like the height

Thank you

Mike

Yes. I use a R20 and used to use it with a 1d2 w/ 300 f/4. Fits perfectly. You will not go wrong with that bag.

But is there room for the other two lenses I mentioned? I would prefer to get the 20 because it is smaller and the height is more appealing to me

Thank you

I think you could squeeze it all in but it would be tight. I have the R10 (same footprint as the 20, but 2" shorter) and I carry my 5D on 24-105, 100-400 unmounted (same size as your 70-200), and a 580EX flash in the main compartment. The additional height of the R10 would allow me to comfortably carry the camera mounted on the 100-400. Keep in mind that you can always put a lens in the front pocket and the side of the bag will accept TT's pouches so you could throw the 17-50 or TC in there.

Thank you

Here is the TT Retro10 with a 300f4L, 70-200 2.8 II, and a 16-35L on the left. With my 5D atop the 300 the bag closes fine. Only problem is the body would rub against the 70-200. The retro 20 will give you needed depth but I think you would still run into the width issue. I think you may need a bigger bag or only pack one of the larger lenses.

The height difference in the R20 might allow him to put the Sigma and 300 f/4 on top of one another with nothing mounted on the 300.

Her's what I carry in my 20 7D with the 70-200 2.8 MKII attached, 400 5.6 and the Sigma 17-50 2.8 OS all in the main compartment but I could add one more small lens or a flash then you have the outside pockets. Lots of room in a well designed bag

It's a wonderful bag isn't it? Love my retro 20. I am carrying my 7D with 100-400, 24-105, 50 f/1.4, I've still got room. Just ordered a Retro 5 for my GF-1.

I also love my retro 20. I hold a ton of gear in mine. Maybe too much. 10-22,24-105 and 50mm unmounted. 135l mounted on 60d. One 580exii,two yongnuo 560s. One pocket wizard. Two filters. Intervolmeter. Two rf602s and one transmitter. My blackrapid strap. All of my lens hoods and an iPad 2. And of course some flash stands batteries gels and cards. I could actually place some smaller lenses in there as well. Very roomy bag

I just got the retro20 and absolutely love it. 24-105 mounted to 5D, 1 short lens, another long lens, flash and all kinds of misc. stuff and still room to spare.
Very well constructed and stylish, I wish I got this bag a while ago. Great asset to storage gear.

This morning I loaded up my gear in the 20 and what a pleasant surprise I can put my 7D with the 400 5.6 attached in the bag I was shocked I didn't think it would work. The most of what I was expecting it would fit but would not close all the way but it's perfect. What a bag I love it

I loved my 20. But sold it as it was so friggn heavy with all my gear in it. I researched everything before buying it except for the accumulated weight.

What did you have in it? From looking at some people's lists, it looks like they stuff more into a shoulder bag than is really practical. I don't like digging through an overstuffed bag when I'm shooting.
