Hi, I bought Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 couple week ago and my current backpack (Pro runner 350AW) feels bit too small to carry it. I can fit it in nicely with hood reversed, but I would want a bag that would fit it in shooting position and also with 1.4x tc.

I also need to carry 70-200mm f/4L, 105mm macro, 14mm f/2.8, 320EX flash and other bits and pieces.
Is Lowepro Flipside 500AW be big enough or is it too big? I cant find it on any local camera store so I would have to order it online.

I owned this backpack for a short time. While it should be big enough for what you described, I thought the pack was just too big for practical use. I sold it and downsized to a 400AW instead.

I do not have the same equipment as you, but I can carry a 7D with 100-400L attached, plus a 5D3, 16-35 f/4L IS, 24-105L, 40mm f/2.8 pancake and various accessories (Lee filters and holder, 270EX II flash, ballhead from my tripod/monopod, etc.).

I bit the bullet and bought it online. It fits all of my gear just fine, and actualy its very nice to carry, doesnt feel as heavy as it should.
