I'm looking for recommendations for a starter bag to house two bodies ( 1d and 7d gripped, ) a 70 -200 and a variety of a few other lenses. I may also incorporate a third body ( 550 gripped) looking used if possible.

I guess I should have narrowed it down. Back pack is my first option with roller or hybrid my second. Will be mainly used for sports shooting. thanks

I bought the amazon basics bag for 30 bucks and fits all my stuff and is very well padded. gripped t3i, 10-22, 28-135, nifty 50, flash chargers, filters, hoods, tripod strapped to side, hell even has my Nikon aw110 p+s in a side pocket if I want to go under water and have fun.. idk how long its gonna last but the zippers are big and sturdy. materials feel durable. Velcro is very strong on partitions. fit my needs and didn't break the bank. perfect!

def would have room for a 2nd body and another lense if I rearranged a bit and moved some of the filters into pocket areas

although you have a gripped T3i I'm wondering if the bag will handle a bulky ID MkIIn and a gripped 7D - not to mention a 70-200, a F1.8 85mm, a nifty fifty and a pancake.? But I did have a look at the bag looks like a steal at $30+.

with some tetris skillz, im confident you could pull it off however im sure it will be cozy and wont have much room for other needed accessories. the camera body with grip is maxing the bag on height. I know the 1d's are big but I always compared them to a regular gripped camera. if its any taller than i'd say its a no-go..... 70-200 down the middle. bodies on the bottom side by side... 85 on one side, pancake and nifty on the other. should work. hey order it if you have a prime acct. if it doesn't fit, return for free!

I picked up another Canon 200EG back pack because it is rugged and the second bag is just a traveler. My primary canon bag has just about everything in it and it is small bag. My second canon bag will only house the 100mm the 70-200mm and the 16-35mm and a stack of extension tubes and 2 sets of batteries along with NDX CPL, UV. The other plus is the bag is waterproof, tough and very inexpensive.

Which amazon bag did you get? My daughter asked me about the amazon bags but I didn't know anyone that had one.
Post some pics with your gear in it when you can.

Will post when i get home! Unbeatable value. Longevity will remain to be determined altho reviews state many years of use.

The Amazonbasics bag is great! I've had mine for almost 3 years before I upgraded and nothing has ripped or torn apart.
