Well after shooting my sons concert at his middle school . It hit me I need A bag that will hold the 5D2 with 70-200mk2 attached. Any recommendation on which bag offers the best padding ? Any input is appreciated.

How much padding do you really need? Cameras are pretty tough. Think Tank's Retro 20 would fit your setup. I have two other bags in the Retro series and have never felt my gear was in danger due to lack of padding.

I just have this Think Tank

It's a really great bag to just hold the camera and the lens.

You can check out Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW as well, I use this with variety of lenses, as the inside is adjustable, along with the 580 ex II.:)

OP you didn't mention form factor. Do you want a backpack, messenger, sling, something else? You'd probably get alot more help with those details. :)

messenger type i have some larger bags that hold a lot of equipment. I mentioned shooting the school function and carrying my equipment in a large bag just didn’t cut it . I like a lot of padding drop your camera as tough as they may seem and you will wish you had the extra cushion . especially with expensive lens man i would hate to drop my 85L or 70-200..any way thanks for all the input i see the think tank is in the lead may have to pop on the think tank retro 20..seems like a nice easy to carry messenger type bag...

I also use a Lowepro bag, but I use this one (external link). It holds a gripped 7D with a 70-200L II attached, plus room for two additional lenses and two speedlites - all in the lower compartment. The upper compartment is just as roomy but no padded dividers, and it also has straps to hold a tripod outside the bag.

A little note about the Top Loader Pro 75 AW: fitting a gripped 7D is very tight. But a lot of room below for a 70-200, mind you.

I love this holster, but now it won't fit my 5D III gripped. :cry:

Lowepro 180AW, designed to accommodate Pro-body with 70-200 attached.
The inside deviders are not that good, but overall is fantastic and provide nice protection

If you go for the ThinkTank Retro 20 you can ask them for an additional bottom pad for a little more protection and stiffnes. I have done this as well as several others on this forum and TT will provide it free of charge.
