First time poster here.

Recently got a canon 60D for taking pictures of my cats as I have like 20+ (no joke), so you guessed it i like cats but now im stuck into photography and really do enjoy it and wanting to start taking my kit with me when im out and about, so now i have a 40mm pancake which is tasty and a 70-200 F4 L which is awesome.

so got the camera brought a Lowepro 180 AW which doesn't even the 60D properly and now with the 70-200 the bag in is just the most useless peace of nylon i have, so now im using it to store my bits to keep them dust free.

I was looking at Domke F6 as its not to big and not to small as carrying around something to big would be a pain, but im having trouble finding posts to see if the L lens fits in the lens compartments with lens hood reversed as they look rather slim in pictures.

So after blabbering all that the only question it comes down to, does the Domke F6 fit my F4 L with lens hood reversed.

Can't go wrong really. I have 2 Domkes and they seem to have an interesting quality in that they seem to expand to fit about whatever you seem to want to shove in them on any given day. Here is a pic of a gripped 5D and a 70-200 in an F6 with room to spare. If it's not perfect, the used market on them is strong. Just sell it and get another.

If you're meaning you want to carry the 70-200 vertically in the F6, the F6 is too shallow. You might want to look at the F3x, which is about the same volume but, IMO, a much more versatile bag. The F6 is well-suited to the person who uses wide-moderate telephoto prime lenses however.

Thank you for you replies.

Jon, I took a look at the F3X and its looks pretty good so I will bite the bullet and purchase that one.
I cant believe its this hard to find the perfect bag for your needs, its hair pulling.

I'm hoping it will have ample room for bigger kit like a 5D if i ever do own on.

I do, and it will. I've carried a 1D3 in it on occasion. I have both the F3x and the F6; the F6 mostly decorates the closet while the F3x sees the world.

I like that you said you have "20+" cats. It's so many, you don't even know how many you have! :D

Good choice. I have the Domke F-2 and F-3x and I use the F-3x most of the time. I carry my 7d, the 17-55 and the 70-200 f/4 with room to spare. Sometimes I throw in a wide angle or my 100mm macro. The end pockets each hold a flash and the front pocket section holds filters, extra batteries,etc. It's so nice and soft that it never feels too bulky. I like it because the 70-200 will sit in it vertically. I pull out the F-2 for long trips where I want to carry 4 lens rather than 3.

Is it worth spending the extra and getting the waxed version otherwise I would go sand.

I heard the wax comes off onto your gear and is less flexible.

I haven't owned any of the Ruggedwear ones; the canvas does a very good job of keeping moisture out of the main compartment. As to the wax coming off, it's essentially the same stuff as Barbour makes their waterproof coats out of. Unless you're in fairly hot climates I wouldn't expect it to be a problem.

Isn't the regular canvas thicker?
I bought a Ruggedwear F3X. It's fine. However, next time I shall get regular canvas. YMMV

I had a Barbour motorcycle coat that lasted 40 years. A friend's waxed cotton Belstaff coating came off on his wife's coat first ride together. Different quality in the coating...

I believe it is, but I don't know how much. I suppose that the waxing process might affect the bulk of the threads.

I went with the normal sand canvas.

I ordered straight from Domke UK as I saved some money, I normally shop at Amazon but there overpricing some of the bags probably to get the free super saver delivery in price.

Oh I almost forgot, thanks for taking your time help me out.
Its sometimes hard to find helpful places on the web, this place just seems so laid back and cheerful with none of that trollness and whining although you Americans to tend to be friendly even if we do have disagreements like tea, coffee and pubs.

What? I drink tea rather than coffee and prefer a good ale that's not served in an ice cube. Are you saying that's no longer acceptable in the UK? :{)#
