I am considering buying a Retrospective 10 or 20 for use of my 5D with a 70-200 lens on it. Anyone have experience using one?

which 70-200? The 20 is for the 2.8 version attached the 10 will hold it on the side. Not sure if the 10 will fit the F4 attached or not. I have the 7 and 30 and both work with my 70-300 attached but its a shorter lens.

The 20 is the one you want.

I use the 20 and it will hold the 70-200 2.8 IS II attached to my gripped 7D. I have an extra bottom pad and it still fits easily, height-wise.

Had a 20 and a body attached to the 70-200 fits , without any issues. the 20 is tall the 30 is wider.

I can't speak for the 10, as I have no experience with it

20 is my everyday bag. I love it because it looks more like a messenger or one of those dude type college bags :D.

It takes 70-200 attached, a 15-85, 50/1.4 and a 600 RT flash no problem. I also store my Lee filter holder and ND filter in it as well as extra batteries and other misc items.

The shoulder strap is pretty wide and I have no problem carrying it for 10 miles. I find that it distributes weight better if I wear the strap across my chest.

For traveling I have been eying ThinkTank UD 50, as it takes laptop and iPad as well.

I have both the 10 and the 20 and either or will swallow up my 1D4 with a 70-200 attached with the hood reversed. It's a squeeze but the 10 still fits it pretty well. The bags are the same size other than the 10 being 2 inches shorter in height.

Personally, I find the 10 much more useful if you have a small build but the 20 does have a good bit more usable space... neither is much fun to carry for more than a few hours when loaded full of gear!
