Hello folks,

I am looking for a lens bag that I can use to carry around 3 of my lenses. Something like the Think Tank Retrospective Lens Changer 3 but cheaper if possible.

Are there any other alternatives around that are similar in size? The bag should be big enough for a 70-200mm but not too bulky and it should have good protection.

Thanks all..!!

Although I have never had one, the Lowepro Exchange Messenger DSLR might fit the bill. It costs around 30$

Thanks Bluemax! I did try the Lowepro Exchange Messenger bag but it had little to no protective padding inside the bag and it just didn't feel safe carrying the lenses around in that bag.

I think Think Tank is expensive, but it's well worth it! I have the Retro Lens Changer 3 you mentioned and I love it! It's very well built and has plenty of room for my 70-200 f/2.8, plus a couple other lenses, a flash, body, and other accessories. It also looks great and doesn't look like a camera bag. The black is very sleek and clean.

Thanks equach206! I guess I'll go ahead and order one anyway. Better to invest in something I know is good quality and is going to last me a long time :)

You will not be disappointed. Think tank gear is worth every penny.
